Top 10 Animals that Most People Like


The Top Ten

1 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.

I like cats because I have 4 and they're cuddly and soft and cute

I love cats Because there they are very awesome.

They're so affectionate, clever, and playful. Cats bring a lot of joy for minimal hassle. They're also great at keeping the home free of rodents and large insects.

! I LOVE cats so much! They are so cute, but people say they ignore people even though its only SOME cats that ignore you. I USED to have a cat that acted like a dog, until some woman was on her phone and ran him over. PLEASE PRAY FOR HIM!

2 Panda Panda The giant panda, also known as panda bear or simply panda, is a bear native to south central China. It is easily recognized by the large, distinctive black patches around its eyes, over the ears, and across its round body.

Pandas are so cute

They're so cute and fluffy

How can you not like a panda? They're absolutely adorable. - SwagFlicks

They look so cute and comfortable

3 Dolphin Dolphin Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic.

Dolphins are always seen as the shark's nicer counterpart. So people hate sharks and love dolphins. I'm fine with loving dolphins, but don't hate sharks. Swimming with dolphins, dolphin feeding, dolphin watching. Who wants to try these things? I do!

I love them!

Love them

I like dolphins, (especially derp like ones)...

But I don't like the part where they attack you when you hurt them...i saw a few videos of that and gawd...the people must be in the hospital right now...

PS:i watch nat. geo that's why I know dis ;D

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

I picked dogs because they are very friendly and sometimes very helpful. That protect their owners to. Sometimes they might even risk losing their lives just for their owners. Foe example, if I am about to get killed by a stowaway, my dog or a random dog would do something to the stowaway. They are very kind-hearted, they really care also they are very lovable. Thank you so much if you vote for dogs. Thank you so much. It is also ok if you vote for a different animal. I just really love dogs. Thank you for reading!

I think that DOGS are cute because I have 4 dogs and 2 puppy at home

They are an awesome and amazing animal

Their genome sequence shows dogs did NOT "evolve" from wolves, and are believed to be an older species.

5 Penguin Penguin Penguins are a group of aquatic, flightless birds. They live almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere, with only one species, the Galapagos penguin, found north of the equator.

There is an amazing documentary "March of the Penguins" and it's narrated by the great Morgan Freeman. - Metal_Treasure

Penguins are the best

Penguins don't get enough spots as people's favorite creatures!

6 Rabbit Rabbit Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.

They are so fun

7 Horse Horse The horse is one of two extant subspecies of Equus ferus. It is an odd-toed ungulate mammal belonging to the taxonomic family Equidae, and can be tamed, bred, and trained, as a mount.

This is the one of the best animals in the world. I have been riding them for about sixteen years and they still bring the best out of me. I think that when people engage a horse to do work for them it could be a good cause and the horse would most likely be treated well.


This is a pretty odd one to be on the list if you've read Black Beauty. Horses are some of the most mistreated and over-worked animals in the world. Just ask Ginger (from Black Beauty).

One could as easily say horses are among the most loved, revered, and even pampered animals in the world, and that they love to and in fact need to work. Some people believe that engaging any animal to serve any human purpose is "mistreatment" and "abuse," no matter how healthy and fulfilling it may be for the animal. Such people have...issues.

8 Parrot Parrot Parrots, also known as psittacines, are birds of the roughly 393 species in 92 genera that make up the order Psittaciformes, found in most tropical and subtropical regions.
9 Koala Koala The koala is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia. It is the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae and its closest living relatives are the wombats.

love it

I love them

Koalas are the reason to live

I want to hug one. - AnonymousChick

10 Wolf Wolf Often in/from packs, Wolves are carnivorous Canines that come in various colours and breeds, and have evolved to Dogs. Some breeds of Wolves are, like Dogs, domesticated, to become a Working Dog.

They look so pretty

Wolves are the best!

Wolves are so beautiful, and they also make good pets

Loads of people are scared of wolves but they are surprisingly really friendly


The Contenders

11 Fox Fox Foxes are small to medium sized animals and belong to the Canidae family along with other animals such as jackals, wolves, and domestic dogs. There are 37 species of fox but only 12 are considered true Vulpes. A foxes main prey are birds, fish, berries, insects, and rabbits. Some of the best known species more.

Foxes are awesome.

What's a fox say?


I love foxes and apparently they’re the most common animal among furries, so why aren’t they higher up?

12 Crow

Thas just stupid ok

13 Duck Duck Duck is the common name for a large number of species in the waterfowl family Anatidae, which also includes swans and geese.
14 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

There so fast and cute! They have something around their eyes that are kind of like sun glasses. Their cubs look like honey badgers, so they can scare predators.

15 Giraffe Giraffe The giraffe is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant.

Giraffes are the best

I belive that giraffes are very fasinating things and I can't understand why hardly anyone likes them

I don't know why giraffes aren't number 1. They r the best animal on the planet

16 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.

Snakes can also be helpful when controlling rodent pest populations.

"Why did it have to be snakes? "

I don't hate snakes, it's more that I'm indifferent towards them. - SwagFlicks

17 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.

Tigers are getting more liked due to being an endangered species and people are actually willing to help conserve them.

There were hundreds of kinds of tigers but now there is less then ten species.#savethetigers

18 Bear Bear Bears are mammals of the family Ursidae. Bears are classified as caniforms, or doglike carnivorans, with the pinnipeds being their closest living relatives.

I love bears they are nearly to become the strangest mammal on earth and it’s super there’s a lot of bears in the world and I do not like people that haunt them or haunted them before or will that wronged to haunt animals that done nothing to us would the people that haunt animals like if they get haunted

19 Arctic Fox Arctic Fox The Arctic fox, also known as the white fox, polar fox, or snow fox, is a small fox native to the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere and common throughout the Arctic tundra biome.

They are becoming extinct and are becoming clothes. #savearcticfoxes

20 Monkey Monkey Monkeys are haplorhine primates, a paraphyletic group generally possessing tails and consisting of approximately 260 known living species.
21 Red Pandas

They are so cute!

22 Moose Moose


23 Beaver Beaver The beaver is a primarily nocturnal, large, semiaquatic rodent. Castor includes two extant species, the North American beaver and Eurasian beaver. Beavers are known for building dams, canals, and lodges.

Beavers are keystone species to their ecosystems. They provide habitat for other species too. By controlling water levels with their dams, they purify the water, clean it, and moisten the forests. If they died out, trees would die and so would the other animals(because forests keep most animals alive). With no animals, we have no food... wait, we could become vegetarians then right? No ladies and gentlemen. The animals disperse seeds to help maintain plant life. So with no animals, there are no plants. With no plants, no us. So to recap, with no beavers, there ain’t life.

24 Whale Whale The blue whale is a marine mammal belonging to the baleen whales. At 30 metres in length and up to 173 tonnes in weight, it is the largest extant animal and is the heaviest known to have existed.


25 Elephant Elephant Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Two species are traditionally recognized, the African elephant and the Asian elephant, although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species.
26 Platypus Platypus The platypus, also known as the duck-billed platypus, is a semiaquatic egg-laying mammal endemic to eastern Australia, including Tasmania.
27 Eagle Eagle Eagle is a common name for many large birds of prey of the family Accipitridae; it belongs to several groups of genera that are not necessarily closely related to each other. Eagles are also one of America's national symbols.

The majestic bird of the skies. America's national symbol. - SwagFlicks

I love them eagles!

28 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.

I have nothing against lions of course, but people love them too much (and not realizing that they can also be dangerous animals) and this may be part of the hyenas' bad reputation. I think that lions and hyenas should be treated as equal and should have equal roles.

29 Hedgehog Hedgehog A hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae, in the eulipotyphlan family Erinaceidae.
30 Meerkat Meerkat The meerkat or suricate is a small carnivoran belonging to the mongoose family. It is the only member of the genus Suricata.

Have nothing against meerkats, but I do hate Timon from The Lion King. (he is annoying) It is all thanks to Timon that meerkats have a better reputation than, say, hyenas.

31 Rats Rats 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.

Cutest rodent ever

People think that rats were the ones that carried the diseases long ago but it was the fleas that carried the disease. All rats are not discusting so many people have pet rats and I am one of them pet rats aren't what you think they are.

32 Red Panda Red Panda The red panda (Ailurus fulgens), or also known as the red bear-cat or the red cat-bear, is a mammal native to the Eastern Himalayas and Southwestern China. Despite having the word "panda" in its name, it's not a panda. It's closely related to raccoons

Can I get a hoyeah!

33 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 wish hyenas have gotten a better reputation. If it weren't for that awful movie The Lion King and all of it's characters, people would see them for who they really are.

At least there are still people who see hyenas as what they are and not the evil villains depicted in that overrated movie.

34 Butterfly Butterfly Butterflies are part of the class of insects in the order Lepidoptera, along with the moths. Adult butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight.
35 Honey Badger Honey Badger The honey badger, also known as the ratel, is widely distributed in Africa, Southwest Asia, and in the Indian subcontinent.

Thanks to a certain Internet meme and (bleh) The Lion Guard, honey badgers are more liked than some animals even if they're the meanest animals ever.

36 Deer Deer Deer are the ruminant mammals forming the family Cervidae. The two main groups are the Cervinae, including the muntjac, the fallow deer and the chital, and the Capreolinae, including the elk, reindeer, the Western roe deer, and the Eurasian elk.
37 Hippopotamus Hippopotamus 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.

They are the most dangerous animals yet they're portrayed positively in fiction most of the time. Why?

38 Alligator Snapping Turtle
39 Orangutan Orangutan
40 Snowy Owl Snowy Owl The snowy owl is a large, white owl of the typical owl family. Snowy owls are native to Arctic regions in North America and Eurasia.

I love snowy owls they were introduced to me in the films of "Harry Potter! "

41 Ants Ants Ants are eusocial insects of the family Formicidae and, along with the related wasps and bees, belong to the order Hymenoptera.

There just amazing in my opinion. In a colony driver ants can scare away elephants. There so awesome. I also think that it is fun to feed them.
