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?

I should tell my uncle to get rid of his

It's only because they stink. If skunks could be fixed to where they can't spray -- similar to how dogs and cats are fixed so they can't make babies -- then they probably wouldn't be too bad to have.

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.

I need one so bad I have a huge pool at my house is that good

3Komodo 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

Ow that must hurt

4Lions

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

I have a terrible fear of lions and fireworks. - CN121

5Dogs

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!

They are cool but they are very hard to take care of I mean pee poo everywhere!

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.

Where would you have an elephant?

7Monkeys

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.

I need one I will love it forever and always!

8Tigers

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.

Just because Princess Jasmine from Aladdin, and Pi did it, doesn't mean we should follow suit, especially if you don't want to be killed.

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!

11Rhinoceros

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

Nobody keeps a Rhino

12Birds

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!

What! What are birds even doing here? After reading this list: Alligators, Sharks, Rhinoceroses wolves, and piranhas are way better and safer than birds. Heck no. This feathery friend is AMAZING. I demand this to be removed.

Loud, obnoxious, dirty, their feather dust gives people respiratory infections and their feces have hordes of dangerous bacteria and viruses. Did I mention that they NEVER SHUT UP, and are very very messy?

What? Birds on this list? I own one and he is a breeze to take care of! Whoever put this here is dead wrong ):

13Snakes

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

I need one and I hate this website!

14Cats

You guys are mean putting cats on here cats rule

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

Be quiet. Cats are awesome.

What is this doing here?!

15Tasmanian 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.

Taz are so adorable I named my husky Taz

I have never heard of them

That's not a pet either

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.

You know I have 7 fish, right? They're awesome pets

17Alligators

They can grow up to 6 feet long and they are pretty dangerous!

Dangerous? Ever consider humans? They are they one who are dangerous. They are killing off species that used to be thriving. - ThunderdrumsRule

Some dudes get killed

You should only keep them when there a baby other wise there still pretty dangerous

I went to Florida once they were free and nothing around their jaws jeez

18Lizards

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!

Are you flipping kidding me lizards really this website just needs to shut their mouth

19Wolves

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.

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

Wolves are wild animals but they can be kept as pets. They can act aggressively towards younger children and smaller pets, and they have a nasty bite. They poop all over your house and are illegal. How's that for a pet, wolfaboos?

Get a dog not a wolf!
