The Top Ten

I actually have recurring dreams about platypuses! We went to war against a greenhouse! When you own an army of 999,999 platypuses (There were a million but my friend killed one) in your sleep, you will realise how awesome they are!


When the British settlers took the platypus from Australia to England, they thought it was a joke. Far from a joke a platypus is. A mammal with a bill? And they are cute. They lay eggs as well and they are nocturnal. Australia has a great variety of awesome animals. These are Aboriginal Australian animals.
Although they are one of a kind they are very picky creatures zoos that house them have to be very careful where they put them and what other machines and animals are around them the reason being more than half of Platypuses in captivity die. They can sense electricity which helps them hunt in murky water. Thus they any motors or other devices need to be muffled to make the Platypuses comfortable.
[Newest]Come on who does not want one they are number one.

I love dragons. I love tigers too, but I really don't like lions, so I don't really like ligers. Dragons are the most famous of all mythical creatures. I'm pretty sure there's no way any other creature here except a magical Tiger or a magical elephant could destroy it.
How is a liger better they are just a lion and a tiger mixed together. If I would I would go out to the store and buy a liger right now. I say that dragons rule because they can breath fire and no other animal can do that except for humans that have adapted to it!
Dragons are probably the most interesting mythical creatures that I have ever read about. They have amazing skills like breathing fire, strength, powerful wings for flight. to be honest its my favorite of all creatures.
[Newest]Dragons are amazing creatures.

The biggest cat in the world, the deadliest predator in the world, the most beautiful animal in the world, the most skilled hunter in the world. THE TIGER IS THE MOST AWESOME ANIMAL IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!
Tigers are very cute when they are babies
Tigers are awesome and are endangered they are so beautiful and amazing I love tigers
[Newest]Tigers are the biggest of the cats that makes them epic

: ) well they are air and flame! ( this is my made up opinion ) mythical animals not made out of flame, but control powers within it! Biggest enemy - man, and mermaids ( evil for hypnotizing and drowning everyone ) - rival, but not worst - dragons! Most of these ( MOST NOT ALL! ) amazing creatures are loyal, friendly, and determiend! I'm a kid sorry for improper spelling can talk, but are shy around humans! It pains them to touch water for the few first days but mainly eat fish. ALL I HAVE TO SAYY! BYE!
A bird sent from god
They are mythical animals made of fire. They are awesome. It is also a symbol of meny difrient things. Sorry for the spelling.
[Newest]It is a very mystical animal which is immortal and very loyal. It is born from ashes and amazingly graceful!

It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed, bred for its skills in magic.
Lion plus tiger what else could be more cool


It can only be found in zoos because it is to big to survive in the wild. They nearly triple their mother and fathers size. I think they are amazing cats and should be respected
[Newest]I think liger is the best animal EVER!

I love the way they howl, and I make characters with wolves, one's called Alfie!
Wolves have been my favorite animal for years. I don't understand why people have misunderstood them and always portray them as evil creatures. They are not! Wolves are very beautiful, loyal, and intelligent animals that deserve respect. After all, they are the ancestors of "man's best friend", so why do people hate them so much? They should definitely be on the top of the list. Why in the world would platypus be number 1? Please change it!
Wolves are so awesome! There are so many cool wolf characters like Amaterasu Wolfen Shiranui and more wolves are strong fearful protective and they are beautiful creatures! They are misunderstood by us. GO WOLVES!

7Polar Bear
Polar bears aren't boss aren't cool they are to amazing for words! All animals that don't exist example : Dragon Phoenix etc. don't count. Lions Wolfs and Tigers are nothing against this guy. Respect to the Polar Bears, May the P-bears be ever in your favor! (Watched too much hunger games)
Polar Bear = Stick a r between the p and the o to get its real form PROlar Bear Because the Polar Bear is pro, If this guys doesn't make it to at least number 3 that blows my mind because, Well yeah its a polar bear!
Polar bears are the best! Their skin is actually black, their fur is translucent (not white), and every last one of them are left handed. Definitely the animal with the most unique traits ever.
[Newest]Polar bears are adorable animals who love the cold catch fish swim they should be loved so much polar bears ROCK

The Eurasian Lynx is such a boss, I mean they can jump
Ike twenty feet on one bound! I totally agree, I even think it should be higher on the list.
Lynx, it is easily the coolest animal that could ever possibly live. Obviously. Plus it has an "x" in it's name. That's Awesome! The Whiskers plus the claws are OP.
Lynx are the best and coolest animal
[Newest]The Lynx is one of my favourite animals ever! It is incredible

9Black Panther
The coolest cat in the jungle
Prince of the wild
The coolest of the cats

10Flying Monkey
Just the coolest, best, animal ever. I love the way it soars through the sky... When me and my family went to Tanzania we saw like this whole flock of these. It's amazing how they all fly at the same time - almost like their intelligent.
I have to do this huge project on a interesting animal is this animal even real cause I don't want to fail one of my classes because the animal isn't real
Send me a pic of one I think they are awesome

The Contenders

I have a Chocolate Lab and A Husky. I love them. They're Intelligent. They can gob hyper and run around but they can also Relax and not be in your face all the time. I love them
Dogs always listen and are super cute
Dogs are lovely but its not very original even if I voted for it (i found it very funny that the platypus came first). I voted for dogs because the dog is the animal that understands you the most and there is so many differant dog breeds in the world its almost lile another animal. 8.5/10 for dogs!


12Nile Crocodile
Okay, to start off, this list is called "Top 10 Coolest Animals", not "Top 10 Coolest Mythical Creatures", so Dragons and Phoenix don't count.
Alright it's ANIMALS not like dragons Bigfoot and the unicorn. The coolest animal ever. They have a strong mouth. It could kill a person in one swallow. All I can say. It should be number one.
Man this has to be the beast animal on the list

Cheetahs are awesome cause of the speed hunting the look their the only big cat that can't roar and the are good hiders and the quickest land animal on earth
Cheetahs are cool because they are the fastest land animal. They are also a great hunter. They also has great eye sight.
The fastest land animal, made for speed with sharp curved claws, aerodynamic streamlined body and super camouflage. Your argument is invalid.
[Newest]Supersonic speed, enough said.

14Tasmanian Devil
They ears turn red when they're mad. Totally awesome animals. I LOVE them.
They look so cute at most of the time

Have style, represents darkness and shadows =D


Graceful, beautiful, powerful, agile, intelligent, what more do you want?
Every time I see a leopard (like in a zoo) I kill it and make some clothes. It looks amazing, so leopard should be #1 because that's where I get leopard print from.

Why is the fox on #24 it should be #1! Foxes are so cool they are my favorite animal ever... YAY FOR FOXES!
Foxes are the best ever animals! They're quick, fast, and downright ADORABLE! Come on, who wouldn't want one of these?
Foxes are awesome. VOTE FOR FOXES!

They are the next closest thing to a unicorn. Your argument is invalid
They're like swimming unicorns
They are the unicorns of the sea. And they have their own song. Enough said.

19African Elephant
It is the by far the most strongest animal, it is able to take down trees to eat leaves and also it is not affected by any of the predators such as lions. The predators do not attack the elephant as they know they cannot
Mess with the sheer strength of the elephant.
The are the strongest mammal ever it can lift thing 20, 000 it weight
It is so big and strong and even lions king of the jungle show respect to the African elephants

20Loch Ness Monster
Awesome I'm from Ireland to!

GO HORSES! I LOVE HORSES Horses rule! Who doesn't like horses? Horses are wonderful and I (and everyone in my family AND my best friend) think they are the best animal ever!
Cool & strong animal that can even carry people and run so fast, Also one of the fastest animal in the world.
Their so peaceful and beautiful! I especially like the different breeds.

22Red Panda
Red pandas are a magical mix of cat, fox, and raccoon. They eat bamboo and apples with their hands like a tiny baby and are chill all day every day. They're also the cutest animals alive.
Everything they do is cute and awesome. Best animal ever.
Red pandas should be first place. First of all, red pandas are sooo cute! Secondly, Red pandas are interesting. Last but not least, red pandas are endangered. Red pandas are sooo awesome!


Penguin penguin I love them
Most legit little guys of all time

24Honey Badger
The smartest things since sliced bread
Do not mess with these guys
Honey badgers scare away lions look it up on youtube

25Tyrannosaurus Rex
Tottaly awesome. Bad reputation giant teeth plus giant size. Two tiny arms and weighs as much as an african elephant
Well that's stupid there should most definitely not be any crazy creatures

Come on! Ducks are cute and very mischievous (in a very funny way)! :3
Whats not to love about ducks?

Lions are pretty cool, but they aren't good enough to be on the top ten. Tigers are better because they don't need a pride to take down a huge buffalo. And they aren't lazy like male lions either. Lions are called "the king of beasts" simply because of their manes, which reminds people of a king's crown. But tigers are the true kings!
That is not true the the lion should be one of the top ten because what can the world do without them nothing they should be number 1 or 2
Lions are Awesome... And if a pride dosen't have a male they can't hunt elephant, giraffe and buffalo... And sides Lions in the bible are the King of Beasts...

It's a silent cat...
It's like an owl and a cat mixed together.. all awesome!
I live in a place that has cougars
They are sleek and sexy and the mascot of Washington State University. That's a double win. Go Cougs

29Black Mamba
They can kill over two hundred adults with just one bite! Don't mess around with these guys!
The are so cool


Llamas. That's all that needs to be said. They are what makes the world turn. Plus... They like flapjacks!
My dream is to spit at a lama once in my life. HOW WILL IT FEEL NOW YOU DARN LAMA!


They are so huge
Giant shark is OP

A giant snake with monster fangs like the basilisk deserves to be in the top ten cause it's legendary and its really dangerous who doesn't love dangerous things, I mean really.

35Panda Bear
O come on! 20? Pandas are so cool. They are white black, Asian, and not RACIST! I'm Asian! :D tee hee
Anyways, did you no Chinese emperors used to have pandas as pets, I'm Chinese so I no a lot bout this stuff cause I'm a smarty so I do something called RESEARCH! I VE GOT SMARTICLES! The panda represent the yin and yang forces, plus pandas are endangered and they've been on this planet for like 2-3 million years, most of the stuff on the list are all legends like the Phoenix ( hey the song... Like the legend of the Phoenix, what keeps the planet spinning... ) so pandas are awesome!

I mean... Come on now! It's got a Superguy named after it! Plus it's like an evil fluffy thing!
Really, 33. These animals take down bears for cryin out loud?!? By the way this is the original more badass version of the honey badger. And the greatest superhero in like ever is named after one! No further explination nessesary.


Wolverines are the best, Honey badgers suck


Some falcons dive at 240mph. Cool? Yes, I think so.
Falcons are so cool they are like king of the sky and their prey have a low chance of escape as the legs of the falcon are good grippers
Falcons are the best animals ever they even star in one of the best movies, captain America 2

39Great White Shark

Closest thing to a penguin. If they were a bit heavier and more aggresive they would be more sensible to launch than cannon balls.

Humans shouldn't even be on this list. Not too many cool humans these days.

Smarter than any other animal besides the human.


This animal is so cool! You can even tell that I like it by my username.
I like it's horns it's got the biggest horns from the deer family


Big foot awesome totally exists but does it have a Bigfoot and Ike massive toes or something
Bigfoots are awesome they must be real
No matter what😜
I already said bigfoot

Cat are better than dogs. I mean, why be at 60? The savannah is a type of awesome breed, it's higly compared to dogs. anyway, cats are cleaner, and they make good compainions. Even though they can't learn tricks, they're still your friends. Cats are loyal, and will always be there you you too. I had a cat, that wasn't mine! And every day she'd go visit me 'cause she lives just across the street and she loves me and I'm nice to her. Her name's Puff. I bet a dog that doesn't know you would do a sweet thing. Come on people, Vote on the cat instead on any big cat or any other animal you voted on; by the way it still represents the big cats and any other cat. by the way I suggest you should also vote on dragons, snakes, and the pheonix.
The second most popular pet at 91?!

48Grizzly Bear

49Tasmanian Tiger
The extinct tasmanian tiger is so beutiful


51Mimic Octopus

Too much aracnaphobia for my liking. I will never understand why people find them something to fear. I'm 12

I love turtles. I'm vegetarian by the way I don't mean I love to eat turtles.



People always underestimate the octopus. It can kill sharks, change color better than chameleons, and shoot ink! Did I mention that they have the same intelligence level as dogs.

Its a colerful animal and it poops out raibows
They look hella cute!
Best ever also a great random word.

58Amur Leopard

My favourite animal ;) and thanks to god

36 hours to have sex

koalas are really cool because of its cool fur as its squirts out (the oilthat the koala eats) the koala is my favorite animal in the world


Come on giraffes are so cool and they have long necks.
Even their name sons cool. Giraaf.

63Common Basilisk
It can run on water


And they taste wonderful.
I find cows very mild in personalty and are more useful in socity then a dog or cat who (under most circumstances) can't give drink and food to humans
Dit is niet leuk de koe is nummer 1 en de kalfjes zijn schattig en daarom is de koe nummer 1

Does that mean you love bacteria, cause it ears your trash too

They are weird but cool for me like super duper cool like super crazy. I can't stand it, there just super duper unbelievably so so cool, many cool things about them. What elese is so so so so so cool about them? HELLO I'm talking to you. They're so cool.
They're ninja birds in Far Cry 3.

Lemur's are awesome. Some of their tails are pretty long. Come on, there may be cooler animals in the world, but this one should be higher than 62.


70Raccoon Dog

Rabbit with Antlers
End of.

King Cobra is the King of all snakes... And sides their cool.

73Blue Macaw


75Black Widow

There awesome and unique.
They're only the fluffiest bird in the world should be top 5
Thre like little fat fuzzy blobs of dirt with beaks'


They are adorable, intelligent and dextrous little tricksters. Many people hate them because they are known for having rabies and digging through your garbage but the rabies thing is overblown, only a small percentage of raccoons have rabies. Also, dogs are just as capable of carrying rabies. Second, raccoons dig through garbage because urban and suburban societies were built over their home (the forest) and rather than moving elsewhere or dying out, they adapted to life around humans and their houses, so they are just looking for food where they can. Fascinating little creatures they are!


79Corn Monkey

80Flying Squirrel

Hippo's are beautiful, but so misunderstood. I mean misunderstood because they are only very aggresive because they want to protect their young and loved ones.
I love hippo forever
Me, I love hippos! ! ! ! '!

They are really cool and cute! They're pink and they have a tiny smile like come on you got to say that's pretty cool that they have a smile and there pink!
These are so ' awesome. Why is it so far down on the list?
They are so cool and pink! Haha...

Hedge hogs are adorable especially the baby's

I like coyotes I just wish wolves were on here and the coy wolves!
Handsome, swift, and whip smart.

85Red Fox

88Box Jellyfish




92Snowy Owl
Thank you for telling what kind of owl it is.




Most awesome Harry Potter animal! Go Buckbeak!

Best ever! A fish that told the ocean to suck it! B|

Bats are the coolest animal alive.

The only mammal capable of powered flight. They see very well. A few species eat nectar or fruit, but most use echolocation to hunt insect prey at night. Bats are ESSENTIAL to the ecosystem stability and benefit mankind by abundantly eating crop destroying insects and disease carrying mosquitoes.

Bats are so incredibly cute, especially insect eating bats and flying foxes. Without them we would be over run with insects and would not have a rainforest, and they distribute seeds of the rainforest wherever they fly. Not to mention they are the only creature which pollinates night blooming flowers.

Sadly, bats are very endangered, and because so many people have stupid misconceptions about them due to lies and hurtful rumours from the media, they are persecuted, set on fire, killed by wind turbines, killed by having their hibernation interrupted by humans, and millions are dying during their hibernation by a disease caused by humans called White-Nose Syndrome.

All of this is so devastating because bats have only ONE baby each year, much like humans, so when they are killed it is very difficult to regain their population numbers. This goes to show how UNLIKE rodents they are (as rodents can have 4-7 babies every single MONTH).

The echolocation of bats is so beautifully designed that they can detect an object as wide as a human hair in total darkness. Less than 0.05% of bats EVER contact rabies and they die from it just like any other mammal. They do not "carry" the virus. Statistically speaking, one is more likely to die from playing on playground equipment than to get rabies from a bat.

They have NEVER been documented to fly into anyone's hair, and they are VERY clean animals, and groom each other and themselves regularly. They don't suck blood. Their are 1000+ species of bats in the world, and ONLY 3 of this 1000 require blood in their diet, and even then, they don't suck it but gently lap up 1 teaspoon of it from the foot of a sleeping chicken or domestic livestock. All three of these vampire bats live in Latin America ONLY.

Bats rock, are insanely cute, and are SO important for the environment! They are the coolest creature.


100Corn Snake
I have one. They are pretty and come in a wide variety of colours, they are actually pretty tame and in fifteen years of breeding them, I have never been bitten.
The freindliest snake --------:< the best pet snake -----;<
