The Top TenXW

1Skunks

I believe they are cool animals, but if you really liked them you'd let them live happily in the wild.

Yuck, must smell bad... What kind of cage would you keep it in?

Skunks smell like Rotten Apples and somebody who just farted. My 7-year old sister (who is now 10) used to have a skunk but she tried to get rid of it by flushing it down the toilet. If she could catch it, Lol!

Skunks are amazing pets and you can get their sent glands removed.

2Sharks

Sharks mainly attack people on surfboards because they look like seals. They are bottomless pits. Can you blame them? No you can't. And how would a shark bite you if it was in the proper habitat for a shark! And if you didn't get the dumb idea to go SWIMMING with it. Really people. Swim with dolphins, not sharks. Sheesh. It seems to me that this whole list is a total lie! Well maybe not ALL of it but it is mostly offensive. And anyway if you swam with a Beta fish you might accidentally swallow it. You people must be shark abusers to think that it would swallow you for no reason. DO SOME RESEARCH. Do you even have a shark to be putting all these crazy lies about them. Maybe you should get one and you might see how your brains were missing something. After all you can get harmless small sharks. Oh and forgive me Do YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT A SHARK IS!? And enough with the language dudes. Golly Moses. Kids go on this you know! God made sharks that way for a reason!

Hello Fluttershy, it's me Derpy. I totally agree with you. Your logic makes great sense. And anyway, who would put a shark in a tank?

Sure You wont Swim with it!, you don't swim with Betta Fish or Gold fish right? Why the hell would you swim with it, question is, why is it a "worst animal" if its not a danger to you or anyone, unless you plan to kill someone by trowing him in the water or accidentally falling to the water while feeding it, either way only very Rich people can afford it. It would be an awesome exhibition pet!

Why would you want a shark anyway, I mean what crazy person would want a shark in a aquarium or a pool, I know I wouldn't, no offense to all those shark lovers.

My pet shark is very friendly and I love swimming with it.

They'll eat you, like how all those people on Animal Planet's "Fatal Attractions" got eaten. T_T - Splashstorm

They will eat your face off, and you can't declaw them.

First of all they are not pets but they sell them... pretty bad

What kind of idiot would get one in the first place.

4Komodo Dragons

Dangerous! I wouldn't trust one in my home. They are capable of killing a human. They can't be tamed and are a danger to society. They are carnivorous and can grow to great sizes! I would never reccomend buying one, especially considering they're illegal in many states.

What!? They are...!? What? Noo if this not so little guy got angry and bit you you would be dead within the hour, and not because of venom! Because of bacteria and guess what there isn't a cure for bacterial infection of the body! Jesus no! Don't even conciter it!

I've had a komoso dragon from a hachling. I had it in a enclosure and let it in my home

Komodo dragon spit can kill you

5Dogs

Dog are one of the most popular pet in the hole world you are so wrong!

I think that dogs are great pets they are so cute how could you not want a dog they are the best pet you could get I would vote that a bat is the worst pet because it would suck your blood at night and probobly kill you before you even had it for one day so dogs would be a great pet

Dogs! They are loud, sometimes they can't stop barking, and guess what? My sister got bitten by one, and I had to run for me life because one almost bit me. Cats don't do such a thing, they are gentle and understand us. Dogs really don't. I'm sorry if I made you sad dog lovers, but that is how I feel.

Cats are bette

6Elephant

Who would have an elephant in their home?

Enough people owned a elephant to be number 6?

Elephants are great animals. But who would want to keep one Absurd! The survival case would be 36% for the human. By the way what are dogs doing at 5 higher than elephants. They should go down to, like 126th

Elephants need to be left alone. Many people kill them for only their tusks, for the ivory black market trade. Leave these gentle beasts alone

7Tigers

The survival chance with a human and a tiger is 30 percent for the human. Who in the right mind would have a tiger as a pet? According to me, a tiger would be the worst pet to have.

In other words, I saw dogs up there at #11, and I think you should demote dogs to like #452. They are the best pets.

This is awful for the person and the cat. Dangerous for the person and absolutely depressing for the cat, would you want to live in a metal box your whole life? God no! Leave em in the jungle and stop cutting down the forest and well all be just fine.

When you have a tiger for a pet, it depends if the tiger will attack you or not. You may fell like your paralyzed if your child have a tiger, it will be a hard and scary time to take care of the tiger.

All tigers have the potential for bitting/ killing. You can't ever fully domesticate a tiger even if you got it when it was 1 day old. It has its instincts that came from its parents.

8Monkeys

Monkeys, partially chimpanzees can be extremely dangerous to humans as they can bite your nose off and transmit HIV.

Monkeys are one of the few animals that kill for fun and shamelessly will eat people.

Monkey throw poop and have temper tantrums all the time, they need to be kept in the wild.

I need one I will love it forever and always!

9Blue Ringed Octopus

Enough Venom to kill something like 16 adult men! They have them at my local store and off a website called discountfish. Co. Uk in the marine section. You must be beeping crazy to get one of these bad boys

10Raccoons

I went camping once and a raccoon tried to steal our food

I have 2 raccoons. They are great. The use a liter box eat dog food and walk around the house like cats. There not very much upkeep and you can use a ferret cage to keep them in.

A raccoon almost bit my hand off trying to steal my sandwich...

THEY HISS but I still want one!

The Contenders

11Birds

Birds are one of the best pets. They can cuddle like a cat, play fetch like a dog, and they love people. Some are destroyers like cockatiels and lovebirds and some aren't like canaries and finches. Some will need more space like a scarlet macaw or amazons. I have a cockatiel and a conure and they are beautiful. A great starter bird is a cockatiel, lovebird, parakeet/budgies, African greys, and canaries/finches. You can't hold some but I love birds. They can do many things dogs and cats can do and more. If you keep your bird clean then they shouldn't be a hassle, if you don't play with your bird (besides a canary/finch) it can lead to feather picking which is terrible. To have a hawk or a falcon you need to be 14+ and have a permit, lastly you can't have a owl as a pet Harry Potter fans.

Birds are awful. Little asses will fly away from you and bite (is it still "biting" if it's a bird? ) you for no reason. The amount of time you need to waste just to get one of those ungrateful bags to let you pet them is ridiculous. Why would I want a pet that doesn't let me pet them? Moral of the story: get a dog instead.

I truly disagree with birds being one of the worst pets! Birds are one of the best! Cokatiels are the best birds you will ever! They don't hurt you, they are easy to take care of, and they are great companions. they sing and whistle all day long and it really makes the house seem cheerful. they can live up to 60 years and are so cute, they even jump up on your finger and will sit on your should all day. I really don't know how it is posible for you people who don't like birds to be thinking that way!

Also I have two parakeets

Rhinos? NO ONE keeps them. Is that enough? Crazy.

13Cats

You guys are mean putting cats on here cats rule

They are the worst pets to ever have! Dogs have been domesticated way longer than cats (well... Maybe not, but I like to say that). They are mean and vicious little things. Their relatives are way scarier than dog's relatives. They bite more than dogs and they look a lot more intimidating. They come in only 2 different shapes and very few different colors, while there are a ton of different dog breeds. All they want is food, not your love and friendship. They don't look up to you for anything but food and are more likely to run away than dogs. This is only my opinion. Your opinion counts too, so you can dislike or like my comment. I only spoke because I wanted to say something. Honestly, I didn't need to say it.

Take cats off this list! They are so cool. Cats, mice, and pigs are the best pets to get. Cats are cute and fluffy. - VIPbunny10

There are thousands of cat breeds. Cats are quieter and are perfect for apartments. Cats come in all different shapes and sizes just like dogs. I love dogs and I also love cats. I just wanted to get my point across.

14Snakes

Snakes are great pets. How did these wonderful pets get on this list now I have officially lost my faith in homo Sapiens. This is sick that anyone would vote snakes bad without any experience with them because anyone who has a pet snake has a wonderful entertaining pet for life

I have a rosy boa and she wouldn't hurt a fly. She lets you hold her and never ever bit anyone. My brother even locked up a wild garden snake and it did nothing. - ThunderdrumsRule

I have a ball python nice easy to maintain n beautiful

If you adopt a domesticated breed, they are awesome!

16Fish

Fish should be on top 10 best pets to have because thy are easy to take care of and also they are cheap and there is a big variety of them and you can get anyone you want to have

They are on the top 10 pets list and I have no idea why they are here as well.

It's cool if you dig a pond and purchase a proper heating system for winter and a nice filter. you can put goldfish or koi in it. They can b hard to spot so me and my little bro have fish finding contests. They have a big place to swim in and they can eat algae when you are out of fish flakes. People who say their boring obviously haven't had a pond

Are you kidding? I love fish! And no, whoever said it, goldfish don't grow to the size of the tank, it has to do with water quality. Also, many fish are NOT easy to keep. I like keeping fish due to interesting behaviors and instincts, not just for decoration.

Fish are great pets. I have a beta fish named blue. You aren't supposed to stroke bubbles the goldfish. With a koi fish you can. They are meant to be looked at not to play fetch or to cuddle with.

19Lizards

LIZARDS make great pets. They are friendly, very docile, don't eat much and are great for kids

Anoles are easy to care for they eat crickets,and good starter pets they are shy and if they bite you it doesn't hurt (good for kids)

I have a leopard gecko! I named it lightning. she is very cute and lizards should not be on this list! It will make lightning feel terrible! Geckos have feelings too! If you don't take it off the list you will die!

Lizards are amazing pets.

20Wolves

They cost a lot with the whole enclosures and are very dangerous. - Splashstorm

Wolf dog mixes have become too popular. They are not afraid of people and are known to attack people. Wolves are more scared of us than we are of them.

It's cruel to have a pet wolf because they need to have open spaces - SammySpore

Only an idiot would own these brutes
