The Top Ten

1
Skunks
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?
I should tell my uncle to get rid of his
[Newest]Skunks are bad smelling and the worst pet to have. I am happy this is number 1.

2Komodo 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
[Newest]Komodo dragons are the best.

3Monkeys
Monkeys are so adorable
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.
[Newest]One monkey ripped someone's face off.

4Raccoons
I went camping once and a raccoon tried to steal our food
A raccoon almost bit my hand off trying to steal my sandwich...
Wild animals not pets

Learn the difference

5Tigers
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.
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.
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.
[Newest]Do not get a tiger because they are bad

6Elephant
Who would have an elephant in their home?
Enough people owned a elephant to be number 6?
There are a lot many people in my place (Kerala, India) who keep elephants as pets. They think of it as a prestige to own an elephant.

7Sharks
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!
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!
Animal cruelty to own one without living in a huge mansion and have a huge tank
[Newest]They sell sharks at Walmart Ha!

8Dogs
Idiots it's not a bad pet
Dog are one of the most popular pet in the hole world you are so wrong!
No! Dogs are the best!
[Newest]You crazy people dogs are man's best friend... !

9Fish
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
Yes it's true.. fishes have a variety of kinds and habitat..
But the only fish will keep on is the GOLDFISH. this fish is commonly adopted at home. they can only grow moderately it depends with the size of the aquarium..
Hey! I have a fish, & I love my fish!
[Newest]I have a fish & I love him so much! His name is blue & he is a beta.

10Snakes
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
Snakes are very docile and calm... I have a ball python, and its a great snake it doesn't lay feces often wich is great, not a lot of maintence. He is not aggresive. The ball python was the #2 best snake to have in america as a pet. That go's for all snakes they are great pets to have if they are being cared for and loved
I have a ball python nice easy to maintain n beautiful
[Newest]I like snakes.(I have a pet anole not snake I'm happy for the anole but I like snakes also

The Contenders

11Cats
You guys are mean putting cats on here cats rule
I don't like how they rub up against you and their anal like pokes you but besides that they're fine!
I love these pets so much. Even they have different kinds of breeds in the world. But dogs Yuck!?!?! Just take cats off the worst list. Because they awesome pets to kept at home.
[Newest]They're the best pets ever!

12Lizards
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 disagree completely, I have a bearded dragon and it is an amazing pet. Lizards should not be on this list at all.
[Newest]I had a three tailed lizard once

Easy to take care of and very safe

13Wolves
They cost a lot with the whole enclosures and are very dangerous.

Splashstorm

DANGEROUS and cruel to have one
Need to be free

14Ferrets
At first I wanted a ferret, but when my friend said her hamster was suddenly agressive, I couldn't imagine what a ferret could've done. But when I'm oped I really want one their so cute!

15Bird
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!
Can anyone hate it my friend likes birds he want to create a eagle called
Sliffer dude

chrome7base10

I love mine so STOP! They r awesome
[newest]
Sure they belong in the wild but I just can't help but saying that BIRDS ARE AWESOME IN EVERY WAY!

16Frogs
Frogs are cool. Sure, they pee a lot but their cheap and playful. I'm saving up for one. It's one of those "grow a frog" pets.
Not the best but not the worst

17Spiders
I think spiders and tarantulas are very neat due to the fact that most are very colorful. Like the Cobalt Blue Tarantula or the Brazilian White Knee Tarantula. Most are easy to maintain aside from the aggressive personalities some have like the Orange Baboon Tarantula. But otherwise very interesting.
I really love my spiders! They are so interesting and not hard to care for. I just recently got a Cobalt Blue and she is beautiful! I can't wait for her to become an adult but the best fun will be to watch it happen!
Spiders could be deadly!

18Hermit Crab
Easy to take care of and great for kids

19Ants
You can watch ants any time you want to
Cool in an ant farm but wouldn't really consider them a real pet

20Chinchillas
Chinchillas are adorable! They can be trained easily and become used to you easily.
So cute great pets but they r rather expensive

21Tasmanian Devil
I heard of a woman who had a cat and a Tasmanian Devil. After a day, she had a skeleton and a Tasmanian Devil.
That's not a pet either
I hate these ther not good pets there firece and nast that is why there called devils

22Rats
Rats are amazing pets! Their like dogs, that you can litter train and will ride on your shoulder! At least they're pretty far down on the list...
Rats are the best
What is the rat doing on here! Rats are awesome!

23Alligators
They can grow up to 6 feet long and they are pretty dangerous!
Some dudes get killed
You should only keep them when there a baby other wise there still pretty dangerous

24Rabbits
Rabbits are amazing animals! I have 2 of them and they snuggle with me every morning. You should really watch what you say about these creatures!
And whoever put that they hate people... UM, are you kidding me, they adore people. You just need to give them proper care and lots of love! When I go outside to their play pen they allways jump up on it wire like they can't wait for me to pick them up. so sweet, I mean it just really makes me sad that adorable sweet little inocent creatures would be on the list. Get a life dudes :(
'
""""
There only dangerous because there bite anyways they mostly never bite.
Rabbits are one of the most popular pet in the hole world you are so wrong!

25Mice
Have you ever heard of baby mouse? I did. I hate the book series. First of all, the main character, Baby mouse is creepy. I mean, look at her eyes! She kills cats. Imagine her seeing your cat sleeping waiting to kill it! I love cats! They do it to cats in other mouse stories too! Stupid mice.
Baby mouse is always mean to Felicia! I don't like Mice anyway. I like cats, though.
I hate mice. They are dirty, ugly angry. Oh yeah, I heard of this book called the Mouse and the Motorcycle. Instated, it should be called the dumb Mouse and the Plastic Motorcycle.

26Lions
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

27Guinea Pigs
They r beautiful and the nicest pets to have. I have 1 and I love it very very much
What they don't hurt kids or adults
There adorable you guys are evil

28Snails
Snails will eat all you plants and their shell easily get broken when its play time because you might step on them! FEEL THE PAIN! THEY ARE JUST LITTLE TINY SLOW PESTS THAT ARE BORING! WHO WOULD WANT AN UGLY SNAIL? AND ITS DANGEROUS FOR THEM BECAUSE CROWS AND SPIDERS EAT THEM!
Snails are good pets I had 2 they were low maitnence and they are cool to watch
Tiny little things that should be in the graden

29Wolfdogs
They are not truly domestic, so don't expect it to cuddle and play with U. Unless you want to raised a wild animal, DO NOT GET THIS ANIMAL...

30Pigs
You know they get so muddy and worst of all you get muddy too! Pigs are so big that they take up so much room so there is none left for you! I tell you, a pig is nothing but trouble! BIG FAT TROUBLE! Besides they are farm animals! Much rather have dogs who are social or bunnies who are more cute and cuddly! REMEMBER! NEVER BUY A PIG! THEY ONLY EAT APPLES AND CORN!
Actually pigs are good pets not bad at all
Pigs are cool. They should not be on here

37Hamsters
You are an Evil devil Hamsters are AWESOME Pets!

38Eel
Just like a Gold fish, you can have an EEL, you have a Python snake right? An EEL would be awesome to have as exhibition pet, just like a Gold fish you wont swim with it right? And its not even that dangerous... But it would be in the worst pet list because I wouldn't trust a 5 year old child trying to play with it.

39Bugs
What the heck is this pet. Okay I have no idea in Japan really kept a bug as a pet.
Who would want something like that?
