1 Orca (Killer Whale)
The killer whale or orca is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family, of which it is the largest member.
When I think of apex predators I think of the killer whale. No shark can kill it, unless a team of 800 sharks came to defeat the orca. But a single orca can kill two, maybe three great whites.
That's awesome! Killer whales are the best! See? Everyone loves them.
No alligator is the best apex predator in the WORLD

Tyrannosaurus, meaning "tyrant lizard", from the Ancient Greek tyrannos, "tyrant", and sauros, "lizard" is a genus of coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur.
Somehow there are no prehistoric animals in here. That's why I made this a part of the list. Most people don't agree, so I just chose one I think is the apex predator. I could just have easily put animals such as megalodon or liopleurodon, but I chose Tyrannosaurus for its reputation.
