Top 10 African Animals


The Top Ten

1 Cheetah Cheetah The cheetah, also known as the hunting leopard, is a big cat that occurs mainly in eastern and southern Africa and a few parts of Iran. The cheetah is the fastest land animal, able to run up to 75 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds

Beautifully spotted coat and fast hunters. They black lines under their eyes are to cut the glare down from the savanna

Sleek and fast this beautiful hunter looks almost alien when running - Irina2932

Ah, Cheetahs. So beautiful and stealthy. Fastest and best hands down

Not cool the elephant is the coolis

2 African Lion

You're kidding, right? The sloth 3 places better than the lion? Go watch Lion King, go on a savannah safari. Which animal seems more majestic, a LION or the sloth that does absolutely nothing?

Lions area awesome. I know almost everything that is fascinating about a lion.

Seriously, if the lion wasn't in first place, I was going to have a fit.

3 African Elephant African Elephant

This should be number one! Better than those stupid cheetahs and lions! Elephants are the real kings of the jungle!

Should be higher, a unique creature that has many things to be discovered.

I like this one because pretty soon because of poaching there won' t be any left alive if people don't start protecting them.


4 Hippo Hippo The common hippopotamus, or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus.
5 Giraffe Giraffe The giraffe is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant.
6 Sloth Sloth Sloths are mammals classified in the families Megalonychidae and Bradypodidae, including six extant species.
7 Zebra Zebra Zebras are several species of African equids united by their distinctive black and white striped coats.

The Ningja Of The Savana

8 Leopard Leopard The leopard is one of the five "big cats" in the genus Panthera. It is one of the most adaptable and the most widespread big cat; it's secrets being:well camouflaged fur; its opportunistic hunting behaviour, broad diet, and strength to move heavy carcasses into trees; its ability to adapt to various more.

The ninja of the jungle.

10 Hyena Hyena Hyenas or hyaenas are any feliform carnivoran mammals of the family Hyaenidae /haɪˈɛnᵻdiː/. With only four extant species, it is the fifth-smallest biological family in the Carnivora, and one of the smallest in the class Mammalia.

Hyenas are my 2nd favorite animal after cheetahs.
