Top 10 Strongest Land Animals

XxSpitfire34109xX
This is the list to see which animals are the strongest.

The Top TenXW

1Tiger

Tigers are not the strongest animal. Elephants and rhinos are, merely because of their shear size. HOWEVER, tigers are, by a long shot, the strongest cat and are known to destroy male lions in 1 versus 1 fights. Its been proven in almost all 1960 cage fights and in the Colosseum back in Ancient Rome. Russian Brown Bears make up 5 percent of the Siberian tigerÂ's diet. Although tigers are not as "strong" as elephants and rhinos, there have been several accounts where tigers have killed elephants and many more where tigers have mauled rhinos to death. There have been no cases of elephants/rhinos killing tigers however. Scientists have also proven that the tiger is the only animal with a roar capable of paralyzing its victims. The tiger is indisputably the emperor of the beasts

Listen ass hole. If you wanna give info make sure at least by one reference its right. because one on one cage fight of lion and tiger has always ended up with tigers fleeing if not death the fact that the mass hair surrounding the lions neck shelters his neck from fatal laceration. Tigers are punchers while the king wrestler by heavy strikes meant to knock down. In a cage battle small punches don't damage a lion while in time tiger gets disappointed

I've just seen a video of different animal fights and their violence is unbelievable. Animals fight for their lives and only then would you see their real power. Tigers are rarely attacked hence you rarely see them fight with all of their strength. When little animals get hurt they become two times faster and more fierce, something you can rarely see in lions and tigers also because of their courage. Same thing applies to other large animals. But, taken all into account, speed, stamina, prowess, ability in general, tiger takes the top. It beat lions almost always and lions beat crocodiles and rhinos... Other comparison is only imaginary because lions do not meet bears and so on.

In most fights the tiger ran away from a lion as tiger was scared.

This is 100% true that tiger are the strongest. I don't exactly know whether they can beat elephants and rhinos. There are some people who are using abusive language and telling that this information is fake and lions can beat tiger please do some research and then open your mouth. Tigers have an upper hand in every physical attributes over lions, tiger have even larger brain size and are smarter than lions. And as far as lions mane is concerned it helps lions but its not that effective against tigers brute strength if you do not believe me Google its or search in YouTube you would find it out yourself

Believe me or not but tigers are the strongest

2Elephant

Think, people! Elephants weigh tons and can uproot trees, turn over SUVs, and destroy all other animals on this list! The elephant is also smarter than every other creature here except maybe a gorilla, and even a gorilla could get destroyed by an elephant. Turn over to mythical creatures and you will see that even a phoenix or pegasus would get defeated by a really strong elephant. Unicorns would probably come close. So would serpopards or minotaurs. Many dragons and sea serpents would meet their fates at the hands of an elephant. Ganesha himself received most of his glory from elephants. According to the top rank, a crocodile can almost beat up a great white shark. Well, then, why isn't the great white ahead of it? Elephants could crush almost all living things that ever existed, living, extinct, and mythological. Maybe there will be a creature that is to come that can destroy an elephant. But in all stories ever told, besides holy creatures and beings, humans, elves, properly equipped dwarves, some and maybe the strongest dragons and tigers could destroy the great elephants. When the Romans destroyed Carthage of Libya, Hannibal, a general from Carthage, rode upon an army of elephants on the northern border of Rome. Even with catapults and brilliant strategists, Rome was unable to destroy it. Find another creature that can defeat the greatest empire that ever existed! Let's see, elephants are in fourth place. Gorillas in third. Isn't an elephant smarter than a gorilla? Maybe not, but can a gorilla uproot a tree and fling it a hundred feet away? No!

Can a black bear do the same? No! Crocodiles? An elephant may not be able to crush a crocodile with one stomp, but an elephant can lift a crocodile and fling it a mile away, as crocodiles aren't even close to elephant weight and elephants can lift around 200 times their own weight! This may have been a long comment, but it just shows never to mess with elephants!

Please. This isn't a contest. People voting based on "who they like better" and without bias or subjectivity. Go on YouTube and watch all the different "animal vs animal" match you can conjure up and find me one where a Lion, Tiger, Bear, Croc, Snake, etc even ATTEMPTS to fight a fully grown bull elephant. The only videos you'll find is the elephant owning anything with the balls to take it on. There are tons of evidence that tigers and lions get owned by rhinos, hippos, and elephants and the best match you'll find is between #2 and #3 which is the rhino and hippo. Those two guys own anything outside of elephants and as I say there is pure objectivity in this statement. Tons of video evidence. The dozen or so videos of either of these guys coming into conflict with the big E though always ends with them getting bruised egos. I have an interest in watching these animals in the wild hunt and fight each other and I have yet to find an instance where anything had the gumption to attack a healthy fully grown elephant and do any kind of damage to it. To put things into perspective go to YouTube and watch the BABY ELEPHANT totally thrash a pride of 14 lions by itself! This is no contest ladies and gents trust me. If the elephant stays out of the ocean he is the GOD of the animal kingdom.

Elephant weighs over 6000kg and can carry more than 9000kg. As for crocodile killing a great white shark that would never happen a crocodile would never meet a great white in the ocean. Please note leopards lions have been observed killing crocodiles. Crocodiles isn't the number one not by along shot.

People,! Vote for elephants not tigers, this is a fact list not a 'Who they like better' list. This has to be #1 soon

3Lion

These creatures are made for battle. They have a brute paw swipe. A simple tiger's paw swipe rips a person's neck off. The lion has a much more powerful swipe so it could do tons more damage. Furthermore, they always take on everything. Tigers prefer not to attack. Lions also, are smarter being more social and have much more muscle. Their mane furthermore, protects, them from any serious bites. Rather, they train to fight. Lions are also, faster and taller. They are also, about the same length as a tiger. If you see more documentaries you can see lions often kill and scare away do nile crocs in the water. Furthermore, lions kill elephants and giraffes. Male lions do 99% of the work on these lethal attacks. The lion truly is the king of the beasts.

Lion is the king of the forest

Lions can actually kill a tiger if he catches Him off guard or is quite and stealthy enough but either way if a lions ever meets a tiger the tiger will be outnumbered
.

Lion is the strongest

4Gorilla

Gorilla can lift up 30 humans without any problem, the ratio by the way his size and his strenght is one of the best or the best, and Gorilla have the strongest arms.

Gorillas are about 10x stronger than us

Gorilla has the power to move any thing its size

Well the gorilla is the only animal that would ever really pick up something so yeah

5Crocodile

The saltwater crocodile has the world's most powerful bite force. A saltwater crocodile over 4.5 metres (15 ft) in length can exert over 2.2 tonnes (5, 000 lb) of pressure per square inch (PSI). Males of even larger sizes can exert around 3 tonnes (6, 600 lb) of pressure per square inch. They can smash through bone like you would eat toast. A 5 metre (16 ft) saltwater crocodile can kill an adult human with a single bite.

A crocodile can kill a great white shark by the way and nothing can prey on it only little crocodiles are preyed on. They have been around for millions of years. There is a chance a crocodile can kill an elephant because it is worlds greatest stealth hunter. I've seen a video when a crocodile killed a bull elephant

Strongest bite in the world. Even though sluggish by nature it is very fast. They can grow very big. Up to 1 ton. It is the only animal that can prey on lions.68 teeth in its mouth to crush bone

The best of all the crocodile can kill any animal because it's a reptile

6Rhino

Big strong horn! - XxSpitfire34109xX

Rhino are the strongest land animal because their but power and there leg strength they will buck a gorilla and cary it a mile.

The black rhino is now extinct thanks to humans. They should not be killed for their horns. Respect them!

But thank god we still have white rhinos in India

7Hippopotamus

Hippos take on crocs they should be between 1-3

A hippo could bite a crocodile in half

Here is my way one hippo two elephant three rhino that's better - Brennan

The hippo I an overkill monster people.

8Kodiak Bear

A kodiak bear could crush a bowling ball with a bite. Decapitate a moose with swipe. It should be #1. Bears often kill tigers is Russia where the 2 coexist. Tigers only kill hibernating bears and subadults. A kodiak bear can easily kill a elephant as tigers and lions have done so. It is also, smarter than all but the elephant in this list. They have sacrificed agility for brute strength. They also, have speed though. They run as fast as any tiger or cat. They have blunt, but longer claws. Same eyesight, as cats but better smell than dogs. They are the ultimate land predator.

Hippos kill the most out of any one of these animals they kill more humans then any other animal and if they get you in the water your screwed. Read a book Genius

Exactly! Bears are known to kill tigers and animals more than twice its size. Maybe I am just the only one that sees that the bear is the king of the beasts

I'd say these bears are probably the strongest physically.

9Rhinoceros Beetle

If you consider the ratio of it's body weight to the amount of weight it can lift, it is by far the strongest animal in the world. Can an elephant lift 8 million pounds? Don't think so.

It is a scientific fact that the proportional strength of the rhinoceros beetle is stronger than any other.

The rhinoceros beetle can carry 100 of its friends IMAGINE doing that so it's the strongest animal in the world

The rhinoceros beetle is the strongest because it could lift 100 of its friends imagine doing that.

10Snake

But venom has nothing to do with the strength of the species. But I do agree on the anaconda.

A snake is a rather deadly animal because there are all different types of them I think the strongest and deadliest snake in the world is the Aniconda

Think people think the snake is venomous one your poisoned

They are very poisonous.

The Newcomers

?Bullet Ant

A lot of toxin that could sting for days, maybe even weeks.

?Harpy Eagle

Use your brain the harpy eagle is the best.
Here's proof:
The harpy eagle (Harpia harpyja) is a neotropical species of eagle.

It is sometimes known as the American harpy eagle to distinguish it from the Papuan eagle, which is sometimes known as the New Guinea harpy eagle or Papuan harpy eagle.[3] It is the largest and most powerful raptor found in the Americas,[4] and among the largest extant species of eagles in the world. It usually inhabits tropical lowland rainforests in the upper (emergent) canopy layer. Destruction of its natural habitat has caused it to vanish from many parts of its former range, and it is nearly extirpated in Central America. In Brazil, the harpy eagle is also known as royal-hawk (in Portuguese: gavião-real).[5

See "It is the largest and most powerful raptor found in the Americas,[4] and among the largest extant species of eagles in the world."

The Contenders

11Grizzly Bear

The Grizzly Bear Is The strongest land animal apart from the elephant because of its size. the grizzly can break a moose's back with one swipe of its paw. In India they've been known to eat Siberian tigers they can kill gorillas, there me skin is so tough a knife will do no damage and they will smash a gorilla or tiger!

Just look at the young grizzly video on YouTube where the young Grizzly beats the siberian Tiger to a pulp in which the Tiger ran off and laid down and just died. Large adult Grizzlys are huge incredibly strong and can wrestle anything to the ground and rip it to pieces.

12Alligator

Alligators should be number 8 they rule the swamp land and being close relatives to crocs they have survived for millions of years and as humans have only been around for about 40,000 you gatta give them credit the can attack with lightining quick speed and cosidering there size and weight of almost a ton they've been feared be Aztecs ad by us they are in folktale and they are smart soe have been abtopted by humans probably the most impressive is that at birth they can rip human flesh with one bight

13Polar Bear

Polar bears are the toughest animas to roam the earth surviving temperatures below -40 degrees celcius they have can kill any arctic animal from 2 ton walruses with killer tusks that can kill a killer whale to 5lb birds known as jab jabs that have scared of wolves even cubs of only 2months old can fend for themselves but stay with the parents until 1 year polar bears are my vote 1 for toughest land animals

If you think about it no other animal on earth can lift as much weight all th way off the ground like a human can no other animal can deadlift or squat

Polar bears live in the article polar bears are very good hunters

Polar bears can kill beluga whales do you think a tiger could do that

14Black Bear

Black bears have all around meaning that even though their not as strong a gorilla but their a little faster and have more dexterity giving them an advantage. Also although they are not the faster than puma or lions they are a lot stronger.

Black bears will tear them like a paper

Panda would totally crush them.

15Jaguar

Jaguar the real king of the jungle with the bite force of 2000 psi and the tigers bite force is only 1000 psi

Jaguars are part of the cat family, of course they are strong for their size

They are really strong in their bite it is stronger than every cats

Such a dangerous animal..

V11 Comments
16Cheetah

Fastest land mammal. They are heavier than a human and are classified as one of the smaller big cats. They are also part of the cat family so I am going to say they are extremely strong for their weight, size, speed and flexibility, as all cats are.

A cheetah can run faster than any animal on land. It can reach 70 mph. That's insanely fast.

Fastest animal
if make a group can even kill a lion

He is the best

17Human

Humans can develop better stamina than most land animals if not all. Our ability to sweat through our skin to remain cool is a pretty unique ability in the animal kingdom. Native American and Mexican tribes were able to chase large land mammals until the animal dropped due to exhaustion (sometimes 100+ miles). A human can consciously develop their body to become stronger, more resilient and more skilled at fighting. Pound for pound a human should be towards the top. Can't match the power of large cats, bears or anything of that nature, but could have a chance with a simple weapon. Not all humans as there is probably the greatest gap in human capabilities that we have ever seen right now but picture someone like Dwayne Johnson. The human body is also made for grappling and that skill can be greatly developed and allow a human to stand a chance against anything around its own size.

Humans are the only animals that have skill, intelligence, logic, reason, great numbers, and the ability to wipe out species. Think about Caesar's unicorn! Deer with one giant antler in the Germanic forests: gone before year 0! Either way, we're not the most physically strong, but we are the most capable.

It can beat all animals

The worst and stranger is than other is human

18Leafcutter Ant

The leaf cutter ant should definitely be in the top ten because they can carry 30 times their size that may not be the strongest bug but it is also the strongest creature to its size that can kill other animals or bugs in this case I don't think a lion can carry 30 times its weight or any other animal o this list that is a killer

19Eagle

This isn't a land animal its an air animal who put this in this list

It is the strongest bird.

Eagle all the way

20Anaconda

Anaconda if given a chance they can crush humans

Anaconda is so so big that it could kill a human
