The Top Ten

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 tigerĀ'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.
WHOEVER MADE THIS LIST IS DUMB TIGERS ARE THE LARGEST AND STRONGEST BIG CATS ONLY Ligers are larger. Tigers can jump over a ten foot fence with a 450 kg bull in their mouth and tigers also have the strongest big cat bite force rivaled only by the jaguar, tigers are also known to hunt, kill and eat brown bears
[Newest]Tigers are smarter lions. It might be odd. But, its proven that tigers have 16% more brain capacity than lion

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.
[Newest]Also Asian elephant is the smallest and their ears And tusk is also small. They Hold their heads more erect than a African elephant

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
[Newest]Courage, brave than any other animals

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
[Newest]A gorilla can lift up something that's twice its wight

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
[Newest]They can kill bull elephant

Big strong horn!


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!
[Newest]Rhinos are strong but they don't kill

7Kodiak 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.
Kodiak bears: 2.50 m and 900 kg

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


Mammal with strongest bite force and can run 30 miles per hour that is really fast and since it is very heavey the wehight is an advantage
The strongest animal in the world is the hippopotamus
[Newest]Hippos take on crocs they should be between 1-3

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.
Rhinoceros beetle's are the strongest.

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

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!

12Polar Bear
Polar bears live in the article polar bears are very good hunters
Definitely should be the highest ranked predator on the list.
Polar bears are very strong, I think the most strongest bear in the world.
[Newest]The strongest next to the elephant


14Black Bear
Black bears will tear them like a paper
Panda would totally crush them.
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.

15African Tarantula

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
I am studying the jaguar so I think it should be number 3
[Newest]They have really strong bites

It can beat all animals
Here is what you guys don't understand. Weapons, skills, and the place on the food chain have nothing to do with the actual strength
Why aren't humans 1 we have nukes
[Newest]Humans are the species that are in charge of everything on earth

Even bear cannot escape from its charging. But cheetahs and tigers can.


It is strong than a lion
Than you ever know it
This animal standing at about 6 ft can smash 1 a lion 2 a tiger 3 a turtles shell it is the most amazing animal ever

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
[Newest]They are stronger because they can fight more and are the fastest land animals.

They may be well known for their big bum but they are really strong have you seen there teeth their about 2 inhes long that's like 6 cenimetres


They are very cunning and adaptive. They are also ambush predators and can learn signs from humans that particular one is dangerous.
Think about it peaple! I know a wolf wouldn't be no1, but its higher on this list then a turkey, and thinking about it, HOW ON EARTH CAN A SHARK EVEN BE ON THIS LIST?! HUH, HUH?!
I think Wolf is a strong because they have grops and they are together and group is the power they can kill animals together.Thank you for giving me to say anything and also HUH, HUH?!

23Leafcutter Ant

Anaconda if given a chance they can crush humans


Even though people think a hyena is cowardly and stupid scavenger they are full of power and skill. They kill 90 percent of their food. Hyenas kill their food more than lions and lions scavenge to the hyena. They only thing that will prey on hyenas are: crocodiles and lions
Most people are voting from their preference than actual belief, research Hyenas instead of believing The Lion Kings view on Hyenas.
You are not smart hyenas are than leopards

You are not right leopard are stronger than many animals you vote for
East or West Leopard is the best

28Komodo Dragon
Komodo dragon because it has a powerful bite just I bite and there it's dead gets a powerful bite at any animal than runs away really fast and few more days later it dies and more Komodo dragons will come and eat that dead animal
This is the best animal/name for my lil because's special aid football team

A orangatang is as strong as five man

It sometimes beat up its predator with its powerful big feet


They are not the biggest cat, but they are big enough to be too strong to domesticate. Any cat bigger than a domestic cat is too strong for a human.
Idiot a puma is a cougar. I swear that nobody thinks anymore.
Strong and fast animal with a great brand


This can carry weights much larger.
Ants are stronger than nothing
How is an ant 36th they should be 1st or at least in the top 10. Size isn't everything ants can carry over 1000 times there own weight.

There stripes are powerful...


This isn't a land animal its an air animal who put this in this list
It is the strongest bird.

Crab are not strong

38Dung Beetle
It can pull 1,147 times its own weight while rhinoceros beetle can lift only 850 times its own weight making it the strongest
I think it's the most strongest animal in the world and people don't know it!

If it can take down a bear with one bite then it should be number1!
The most awesome superhero was named after it so it should be number 1.
I read this in a book: if the wolverine were to be the size of a bear, they'd be the strongest animals on earth.

Have extremely powerful jaws and claws




They can kill an tiger, lion, bear, horse, and any big cat or animal that gets in its way. Bulls have awesome power.

They are very lean and very strong


Worms are stronger than elephants

They r indestructible and can live 10 days without a head and can survive a nuke



51Golden Eagle
It is the golden eagle
It has big claws
It could kill a peregrine falcon

I love bulldogs. They aren't the strongest I just wanted to put them on this list to remind you how awesome they are.

They are so strong! They are not the strongest animals on earth, but that's cause they are tiny. If a stoat were the size of a tiger, and they were evil and had the intent to ruin the world, we'd be facing an apacalspse.
Plus they are adoorrrabbble


55Double-Wattled Cassowary
This Cassowary is a flightless bird. It is the #1 deadly bird in the world at my opinion. It has the powerful kicks! + there my favorite bird cause they can kick some asses! :D

56Rhino Beetle
If a rhino beetle weight 1 pound it could carry 850 pounds it can carry 850x its own body wheght imagine if it weght 500 pounds it could carry 425,000 pounds!



They are very strong to buck people off of them and powerful kicking and also rearing and falling off when their rearing really high up on their hind legs
Draft horses are in fact the second strongest land animals on earth this CURRENT day. Their sheer force is much more powerful than a tiger's, and they can and will kill a tiger easily in one kick if well aimed.

They are the closest animal to a Dinosaur
