Top Ten Apex Predators


The Top Ten

1 Orca (Killer Whale) 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


2 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.
3 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.

Lions have the numbers they do not hunt alone

They are the king of the beast

4 Saltwater Crocodile Saltwater Crocodile The saltwater crocodile, also known as the estuarine crocodile, Indo-Pacific crocodile, marine crocodile, sea crocodile or informally as saltie, is the largest of all living reptiles, as well as the largest riparian predator in the world.
5 Great White Shark Great White Shark The great white shark, also known as the great white, white pointer, white shark, or white death, is a species of large lamniform shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans.

These predators are top of the food chain. They have great tactics to hunt

6 Polar Bear Polar Bear The polar bear is a carnivorous bear whose native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle, encompassing the Arctic Ocean, its surrounding seas and surrounding land masses.
7 Komodo Dragon Komodo Dragon The Komodo dragon, also known as the Komodo monitor, is a large species of lizard found in the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang, and Padar.
8 Tundra Wolf
9 Black Mamba
10 Anaconda

The Contenders

11 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

While it is not the strongest, it sure is one of the fastest.

12 Grizzly Bear Grizzly Bear The grizzly bear less commonly called the silvertip bear, is any North American morphological form or subspecies of brown bear.
13 Piranhas Piranhas
14 Human
15 Tyrannosaurus Tyrannosaurus 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.
