Top 10 Animals that Most People Hate


The Top Ten

1 Mosquito Mosquito Spanish for "small fly," mosquitoes are flies that have been known to cause various diseases . A sample of diseases caused by mosquitoes: malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus .

I hate them so much! When they bite you, they're so itchy!

I hate them. they are horrible when they bite

Mosquitos can even kill you. I am just going to say it they kill over 1 million people.

I live In Florida and mosquito are a big problem in my community! I don't go outside normally everyday because there's too much mosquitos out there! - InfernoTopTenners

2 Cockroach

They are big and ugly

The most disgusting insect ever. - joshsanz

Yuck! Cockroaches are disgusting and very annoying! Especially when they suddenly fly on your face!

We have these all over my school. Ones that fly too. - JaysTop10List

3 Bedbug

I just hate em well I'm 9 of course I do


4 Rat Rat Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents of the superfamily Muroidea. "True rats" are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black rat, Rattus rattus, and the brown rat, Rattus norvegicus.

Rats are the best like ya

That's right, it was the fleas' fault that the plague was caused, not the rats'. They can be intelligent and one of the few species capable of empathy, not the "evil twin of mice" that most people see them as.

"They didn't cause the Black Plague, that was fleas." And what was carrying the fleas? That's like saying it wasn't the fleas, it was the bacteria the fleas were carrying. Rats were the proximate vector.

Some rats can be intelligent and some of them can be cute. They didn't cause the Black Plague, that was fleas. - Swellow

5 Snake Snake Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears. About 600 species are venomous, some of which can be fatal to humans if no medical help is sought.

Non-venomous ones are SO CUTE! Very very interesting animals

You all sTUd

Snakes help control pest rodent populations. There is no need for them to be hated. Why does religion and popular culture see them as bad all the time?

Snakes are NOT "intelligent." There is no evidence to indicate such. "Most of them are deadly." Actually, the overwhelming majority of snake species are harmless.

6 Dog Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.

I found this on Reddit, dogs are honestly overrated if you ask me. There isn't much that I can say that hasn't been said already. I suppose I could say that they are everywhere, and a lot of people force their dogs on others. Apparently, people who dislike dogs are considered to be the same as the devil. Sometimes, these things can break a relationship. I don't even need to mention that a lot of people have been killed from them, especially when they bite. Some people are even insane enough to excuse the behavior, like saying that the dog loves them, or that they would never hurt someone. Look around on some groups on the internet, and you can even see some people punishing their kids for trying to defend themselves from the dog attacking them.

Crap all over the place, bite people, shed, drool, rabies, etc. Just obnoxious.

Filthy, loud, allergenic, aggressive animals that are almost never properly trained or controlled by their owners.

Garbage animals.

7 Spider

But we need Spiders because without them we would have a worldwide insect-carpet. I rather see a Spider once in a while then not seeing the ground because of all the insects - Jetister

They eat mosquitos. Therefore, they are my friends. - BKAllmighty

I can bear small spiders. Anything over small or tarantula-sized can go piss off. - Swellow

My brother is 9 years old and he is very scared of spiders that aren't deadly! - InfernoTopTenners

8 Wasp

Not only are they agressive useless insects also they kill the insects we need to survive: Bees - Jetister

Wasps are the epitome of blind rage. Nothing about them factors to be positive. - SwagFlicks

Disgusting, horrible and make up as to why I hate the summer. - Swellow

I have a phobia of bee insects, so in that case, I hate wasps - Mcgillacuddy

9 Hornet Hornet Hornets are the largest of the eusocial wasps, and are similar in appearance to their close relatives yellowjackets. Some species can reach up to 5.5 cm in length.

They’re scary. - Userguy44

This should be above wasp

Per wasps. - SwagFlicks

10 Human Human Humans are not exactly wild animals, but they are not domesticated either. Humans are proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white.

Just look at the news and you will see why they should be number 1

The most damaging and dangerous creature on this list. Deserves to go extinct.

Well it's true. We kill other humans, drive beautiful animals to extinction, pollute clean air, litter, start wars, and spread diseases. Yes I know that I am a human too, but from what we've been doing for 200,000 years. We are a disgrace to the world. - Catacorn

The Contenders

11 Fly

Believe it or not some flies bite. It doesn't hurt much but when there is a lot of them it gets very annoying. I hate them!

I HATE HATE FLIES! - leafstar


12 Flea

Holy cow there are so many reasons why. They caused the plague,they carry diseases, are next to impossible to kill without medicine, and always jump on you.

13 Skunk Skunk Skunks are mammals known for their ability to spray a liquid with a strong odor. Different species of skunk vary in appearance from black-and-white to brown or cream colored, but all have warning coloration.

They are just animals, they can't talk and say "leave me alone" so they have to do something else! Us people talk, like the Skunks spray.

Skunks are actually very gentle and playful with humans, they only spray you if you scare them, a lot of people have pet skunks

Screeching thirteenth, literally an irrelevant animal, no one likes it. - Puga

14 Tick

Small parasitoids that may carry the virus TBE that will kill you by destroying your brain. If you are lucky and they do not carry the virus, you will get borrhelia within 10 days and you need to get penicillin. But they do not fly and as long as you keep away from flora and fauna, you are not likely to hunt you.

15 Crocodiles
16 Gnats Gnats

I HATE gnats! they are so annoying and provide absolutely nothing good for the enviroment

17 Cat Cat The "House Cat", also known as the Domestic Cat or the Feral Cat, is a small feline, a good hunter, and comes in a variety of colors and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated. They are highly intelligent and good at problem solving.

WRONG! They are most popular and love animal. But I hate it so much, and I think they deserve be hated.

They are cute - ArcticWolf

Cats are adorable! Why did anybody put in the list! - InfernoTopTenners

Cats are adorable but so rude honestly

18 Worm

So crawly and gross and sometimes parasitic. The absolute worst animal ever.

SHORT - leafstar

19 Slug
20 Shark Shark Sharks are a group of fish characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Sharks have been around before the earth's first dinosaurs and even the earth's first trees.

I hate shark

Jaws made people ignorant. - FrozenHatingPokefan

I don’t like shark - ArcticWolf

21 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.

I am mad at The Lion King for giving these species a bad reputation. I strongly encourage everyone to boycott the film and be more educated about animals.

Thank you, The Lion King. Now these species is now endangered. - kontrahinsunu

22 Tiger Tiger The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.

If you know the history of the white tiger you know why they're hated by most people. (Incest is wrong on many levels) However, not all white tigers are like that, and it's still possible for two, unrelated orange tigers to birth a white cub.

23 Raccoon Raccoon The raccoon, sometimes spelled racoon, also known as the common raccoon, North American raccoon, northern raccoon and colloquially as coon, is a medium-sized mammal native to North America.
24 Ant Ant Ants are eusocial insects of the family Formicidae and, along with the related wasps and bees, belong to the order Hymenoptera.

There is just to many...

25 Monkey Monkey Monkeys are haplorhine primates, a paraphyletic group generally possessing tails and consisting of approximately 260 known living species.
26 Coyote

People hate them for being a threat to their pets and livestock, but as long as you protect yourself, your kids, or your animals and keep them away from danger, then you won't have a problem with coyotes and other wild beasts. I say that dealing with a coyote shouldn't be any different from, say, a wolf or a fox.

27 Jackal

I don't get why jackals can be hated when they're helpful scavengers. At least there are a few positive portrayals of the jackal in fiction (such as Lucario in the Pokemon games and show), but that didn't stop jackals from being villains in, again, The Lion Guard.

28 Camel Camel A camel is an even-toed ungulate within the genus Camelus, bearing distinctive fatty deposits known as "humps" on its back.
29 Vulture

Like hyenas, they've given a bad reputation by The Lion King through that new Lion Guard show where they're also portrayed as villains. Vultures are helpful scavengers who are more vital than vile. Goes to show how stupid The Lion King franchise really is.

30 Woodlouse
31 Lion Lion The lion is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies in Africa.
32 Alligator Alligator An alligator is a crocodilian in the genus Alligator of the family Alligatoridae. The two living species are the American alligator and the Chinese alligator. Additionally, several extinct species of alligator are known from fossil remains.

I like them - ArcticWolf

Alligators are big and ugly. No one likes them.

33 Seagull Seagull

So many people I know are scared of seagull

34 Tarantula Tarantula Tarantulas comprise a group of large and often hairy arachnids belonging to the Theraphosidae family of spiders, of which approximately 900 species have been identified.
35 Earwig Earwig
36 Stick insect

They are so gross.

37 Dogs Dogs The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.

Worthless animals

38 Goats Goats The domestic goat is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe.
