Top 10 Best Wild Animals

The Top Ten
1 Lion The lion (Panthera leo) is a large cat of the genus Panthera native to Africa and India. It has a muscular, broad-chested body, short, rounded head, round ears, and a hairy tuft at the end of its tail. It is sexually dimorphic; adult male lions are larger than females and have a prominent mane. It is... read more

There just isn't any other animal that has left a legacy like the lion. It's a fact. It's the number one animal on flags in the world. There is a giant sphinx in Egypt. There are lions to honor dead soldiers. The lion has even been mentioned multiple times in the Bible, and Jesus was associated with the Lion of Judah.

So you can't lie. The lion has left a mark on the earth that will NEVER be forgotten in human culture and is still to this day called the KING OF BEASTS.

Lions are the very essence of majesty. Those golden eyes, the thick, flowing mane, and the graceful way they move. They are determined, fierce creatures. Lions deserve more than to be feared. They are truly magnificent creatures.

2 Wolf The wolf (Canis lupus), also known as the gray or grey wolf, is a large canine native to Eurasia and North America. Over thirty subspecies of Canis lupus have been recognized, with gray wolves comprising the wild subspecies. As the largest extant member of the Canidae family, the wolf is distinguished... read more

Not only are wolves stronger and faster than any other predator in North America (short of the fabled mountain lion), they are capable of reaching a consistent speed of over 25 miles per hour for more than a day without breaking a sweat.

Also, they are incredibly smart for their relatively small heads compared to other predators. They are born to hunt and catch their prey, come hell or high water.

Wolves are cute, strong, and loyal. They are so beautiful and smart! Honestly, I don't know how else to describe these animals. They are amazing!

They live in packs together. Oh, and if you don't think that's awesome enough, Google search their cubs! NOW! They are so cute! So yeah, vote for wolves. It brings you good luck!

3 Giraffe The giraffe is a tall African hoofed mammal belonging to the genus Giraffa. It is the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant- hoofed herbivorous- on Earth. Traditionally, giraffes were thought to be one species, Giraffa camelopardalis, with nine subspecies. Most recently, researchers... read more

A giraffe is a long animal, in great comparison to the fighter in the serial Mortal Kombat Conquest: 17th episode subject name (Master Cho). Master Cho is a small sorcerer and great fighter.

Jump to jump and red spirit of hand, he's a great comparison to a giraffe.

Giraffes are amazing wild animals. I think they are some of the most incredible, interesting animals in the world. Did you know that giraffes have black tongues?

I love giraffes, and every time that I go to the zoo, I am starstruck by their majestic appearance. But I also feel bad for them because some crazy people kill them for no reason.

4 Tiger The tiger (Panthera tigris) is the largest living cat species and a member of the genus Panthera. It is most recognisable for its dark vertical stripes on orange fur with a white underside. An apex predator, it primarily preys on ungulates such as deer and wild boar. It is territorial and generally... read more

I really like the tiger, but the only problem is that they are in danger of extinction because people hunt them for their beautiful striped coat.

In my opinion, I would rather keep seeing that coat on them than see it on myself. I feel like it is very cruel to hunt them, and that also goes for every animal on Earth.

The tiger is majestic, royal, and aggressive, more so than any other wild cat. Dominance in the deep forest, creating its own territory, free from other predators, distinguishes tigers from others.

It is the fiercest creature. Lions and tigers are not found in the same place because tigers use to kill lions and endanger them. This happened in most places in India.

5 Dolphin A dolphin is an aquatic mammal within the infraorder Cetacea. Dolphin species belong to the families Delphinidae (the oceanic dolphins), Platanistidae (the Indian river dolphins), Iniidae (the New World river dolphins), Pontoporiidae (the brackish dolphins), and the extinct Lipotidae (baiji or Chinese... read more

Dolphins are extremely intelligent and highly socially complex creatures. They are fascinating and deserve to be number one on this list.

Smart creatures! Once land animals, now mostly water animals! Fast swimmers! Beautiful creatures!

These are so cute! They live in the ocean and can be trained to do tricks. Can't we get this to the top of the list?

6 Eagle Eagle is the common name for many large birds of prey of the family Accipitridae. Eagles belong to several groups of genera, some of which are closely related. Most of the 60 species of eagle are from Eurasia and Africa. Outside this area, just 14 species can be found - 2 in North America, 9 in Central... read more

Well, the bald eagle is a big bully. It rarely catches fish, preferring to steal them from the beautiful osprey that works hard to keep its prey from the king.

The bald eagle also doesn't mind what fish it eats. It can prey on dead fish on the riverbank and not mind if there are flies buzzing around it.

My favorite animal is the harpy eagle, a not very well-known eagle that lives in the rainforest. It zips around the branches to hunt for speedy monkeys or slow sloths for dinner. Or breakfast or lunch. Anyway, just search up eagle, and pretty much the only result will be a load of bald eagles. Seriously? Does nobody know any other eagle?

7 Turtle Turtles are an order of reptiles known as Testudines, characterized by a shell developed mainly from their ribs. Modern turtles are divided into two major groups, the side-necked turtles and hidden neck turtles, which differ in the way the head retracts. There are 360 living and recently extinct species... read more

Turtles are awesome. Best reptiles ever. Anyone who doesn't like turtles is an awful person.

They look adorable! I got to swim with them in Hawaii and it was awesome!

Look how gosh dang cute that picture is.

8 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. It's the only animal that belongs to the Aliuridae family. Despite having the word "panda" in its name, it's not a panda. It's closely related to... read more

Cute animal! And so is the panda! One fact: A red panda is a fox. It's just a bamboo eater (not a bear).

9 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... read more

I like the black panther because it's a very unique type of cat, and they are very, very strong. They usually represent the bad guys in fantasy stories, but in real life, they're actually wonderful animals.

And what I like most about them is they can climb trees. God created them for a purpose.

I love leopards. They are large wildcats compared to the snow leopard and can live in parts of Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. They are my favorite animal. They are super smart and fast, running at speeds of 58 km/h.

They eat gazelles, birds, zebras, and deer. Their sharp claws help them catch their prey. They are great climbers.

10 African Wild Dog

They have saved so many lives without questions (pun intended).

The Contenders
11 Hawk Hawks are a group of medium-sized diurnal birds of prey of the family Accipitridae which are widely distributed and varying greatly in size.

I think that hawks have great eyesight. If not, I have been believing in the wrong thing.

12 Bear Bears are carnivoran mammals of the family Ursidae. They are classified as caniforms, or doglike carnivorans. Although only eight species of bears are extant, they are widespread, appearing in a wide variety of habitats throughout the Northern Hemisphere and partially in the Southern Hemisphere. Bears... read more

The bear should get at least 3rd place because they have the most variety of personality traits. They are also caring mothers. The bear is one of my favorites because it is protective and playful.

The bear should be the king of the wild because they're awesome, tough, better than lions, and are the strongest animals in the world.

Polar bears are beautiful creatures, and it's a shame they're being affected by global warming!

13 Elephant Elephants are the largest existing land animals. Three living species are currently recognised: the African bush elephant, the African forest elephant, and the Asian elephant. They are the only surviving members of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea, extinct relatives include mammoths... read more

Elephants are majestic animals that have human-like feelings and bury their dead. They are also one of the few animals who recognize themselves in the mirror.

They are extremely intelligent and share many emotional characteristics with humans and other apes.

So beautiful and nice animals. They won't attack people unlike lions.

14 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.

I absolutely love hippopotamuses because they are the cutest animals in Africa and usually show pure strength against crocodiles and any other predator in a pond, lake, or river.

Hippopotamuses also have great hunting skills because of their ability to easily attack fish, and the amount they catch is outstanding.

To summarize all of this, hippopotamuses are great animals in every way. I LOVE THESE CREATURES!

15 Owl Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes over 200 species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight. Exceptions include the diurnal northern... read more

Owls are very cute but can also be dangerous. Did you know that they cannot turn their heads in a full circle? I think that there is a lot more to learn about them.

Watership Down vibes. I don't know, I'm just voting for them because of their wise and hunched looks, and also because they were featured in Harry Potter.

I believe they are intellectually gifted animals. They can be trained and fed easily.

16 Horse The horse is an odd-toed, hoofed mammal of the taxonomic family Equidae whose sole major subspecies (Equus ferus caballus) is a domesticate, although wild subspecies have survived into the modern period. All subspecies, including the two extant ones, descend from the Pleistocene Equus ferus. The horse... read more

Horses are the most spirited animals in the world, and you cannot separate a horse from its family. They are loyal to their family.

Horses are number one on my list. If you have never seen a horse, then you do not know what you are missing.

Wild horses are so beautiful! They are rare also, which makes them the best!

17 Cheetah The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is a large cat and native to Africa and central Iran. It is the fastest land animal, estimated to be capable of running at 80 to 128 km/h (50 to 80 mph) with the fastest reliably recorded speeds being 93 and 98 km/h (58 and 61 mph), and as such has several adaptations... read more

The cheetah is the fastest land animal in the world. It is harmless to humans. It catches the fastest gazelles, like Thomson's gazelles. It is my favorite animal.

The ultimate example of specialization. They are built for pure speed.

They are beautiful creatures. I love their spots, and they are very adventurous creatures.

18 Jaguar The jaguar (Panthera onca) is a large cat species and the only living member of the genus Panthera native to the Americas. With a body length of up to 1.85 m (6 ft 1 in) and a weight of up to 158 kg (348 lb), it is the largest cat species in the Americas and the third largest in the world. Its distinctively... read more

It preys upon capybaras, anacondas, caimans, etc. It is on top of the food chain in the Amazon. It knows how to climb, swim, and sneak up on its enemies very well.

It also looks very beautiful.

Why is this not at the top? Why why WHY!?!?

The jaguar is better than the lion, peeps. It has the strongest jaws of all wild cats. Plus, the "black panther" animal is actually a black jaguar. How's that for awesome?

Plus, super stealthy and agile like a kitty ninja.


Jaguars are stealth hunters, and that is what their spots are for. It's like a shadow.

19 Kangaroo The kangaroo is a marsupial from the family Macropodidae. In common use the term is used to describe the largest species from this family, especially those of the genus Macropus: the red kangaroo, antilopine kangaroo, eastern grey kangaroo, and western grey kangaroo.

When I went to Australia, I went to the Australia Zoo. A kangaroo there nearly killed me, but I would still be one.

There are kangaroos on my property every day.

20 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.

They are amazing creatures and are just one of the most beautiful mammals.

21 Alpaca
22 Bobcat The bobcat is a North American cat that appeared during the Irvingtonian stage of around 1.8 million years ago.

Out of 89 animals, I think the bobcat needs a shout out. Beautiful animals they are.

23 Brazilian Tapir
24 Seal Pinnipeds, commonly known as seals, are a widely distributed and diverse clade of carnivorous, fin-footed, semiaquatic, mostly marine mammals in the clade Pinnipedia. They comprise the extant families Odobenidae (whose only living member is the walrus), Otariidae (the eared seals: sea lions and fur... read more

I love seals! Mainly harbor seals because their babies are so cute and fluffy! I think they should be in the top ten for sure!

25 Rhinoceros A rhinoceros, commonly abbreviated to rhino, is a member of any of the five extant species (or numerous extinct species) of odd-toed ungulates in the family Rhinocerotidae. (It can also refer to a member of any of the extinct species of the superfamily Rhinocerotoidea.) Two of the extant species are... read more

Rhinoceroses are so tough. They are the third heaviest animals. They are strong and fast.

The rhinoceros says do not mess.
