Best Animal Jam Animals

The Top Ten

1 Arctic Wolves

This is unfair, I know everyone just loves the arctic wolves, but what about non-member animals? Everyone treats members like they're lords and they aren't. I'm not saying that all members are spoiled, but many are and hate non-members just because they think they scam to get what they want. Us non-members really hate how we are treated so lowly and it's really unfair how members get all the glory, I would love to see at least one "Best Animal Jam Animals List" say that the regular wolf is the best animal. I'm seriously tired of the members getting worshipped and can at least someone vote for non-member animals like the panda or the turtle? Ugh, I'm so done!

I adore these, but I wish non-members could get at least one more cool animal. At least not be snobby when you're an arctic wolf. Try to show some respect for non-members if possible. Please. For the sake of them not being able to buy a membership (if not they even can), show some love and gift for them.

They are the most played, cool and they go well with spikes, but members are praised too much for them.


Cool dance

2 Foxes

There was one and good animation

Well, as much as I wish they were NM, they are my favourite animal on animal jam by far... I know, I know, they aren't felines, but I think they are pretty good animals for clans, more so than the wolf, foxes do look more cat-like, Instead of waiting 10 weeks for diamonds, (unless you buy a membership card with diamonds) you can just buy foxes with gems, which is much easier... And they look quite good in most items as well.

I hope I didn't offend anyone, it's my opinion you don't have to agree

I just love foxes!


Don't have a reason I just like them

3 Bunnies

Play animation is fun to do! - ArcticWolf

They are so cute! :D


Bunnies are the best animal and always will be! My favorite animal has been bunnies since I was 4! I'm 10 now! Bunnies rock and I don't care if they are at the bottom of the list they are always close to my heart.

I miss my 3 rabbits they all ran away I'm so sad :(

4 Wolves

I think wolves are just sweet! They look amazing and they only cost a few gems! (by the way I'm on play wild) so keep in mind: WOLVES R BEST!

When there are black wolves, they remind me of Fman122 or any hackers! - ArcticWolf

At least this is non members

This is the best non-member animal, lots of clothes look great on it. Sometimes, I get super pissed off that nearly all members own arctic wolves, and it's become a normal thing for members to have that. A friend of mine got membership, and the first thing she did was buy arctic wolf. Wolves are much better.

5 Otters



I love otters! They were my first animal I got when I bought membership!

They're are cute! I love the short video of 3 otters wanting to swim! - ArcticWolf

OTTERS ARE SO CUTE! I love them so much, I don't know why nobody has voted for them. Otters are totally my favourite and I don't care that they're on the bottom of the list because I love them anyways.

6 Cheetahs

They damn cool cuh

The play animation is good and I like how the tail moves - ArcticWolf

I do not have one, yet they look cute and they have cool actions! - Phantomcat

Cheetahs are amazing! Cheetahs are not that popular, they really should be. Cheetahs are very majestic and "long". A lot of people get cheetahs and snow leopards, cheetahs are a little bit skinnier and longer than snow leopards, I mean I am not saying that snow leopards are fat, because they are not. Many items look very good on the cheetahs. I believe Aparri's "epic swag look" is a snow leopard or a cheetah. Cheetahs are very easy to express yourself and to make a unique look with. Overall, I think cheetahs deserve a spot in the top ten.

7 Snow Leopards

Snow leopards are one of the "longest and shortest" animals of Jamaa. I mean I know that the snow leopards are not as popular as some animals, but the snow leopard is one of my personal favorites. One of the reasons I love the snow leopard is that they are so unique so they are perfect for people to express themselves with. Snow leopards are sold in the diamond shop for ten diamonds, at the moment I am saving up for a snow leopard. Even though they are one of my favorite animals they do have some downsides. For one some neck and head items I do not really care for on the snow leopards, it can also be somewhat hard to make a decent look on the snow leopards. Now sometimes people can get cheetahs and snow leopards confused, now I would say that the cheetahs are a little bit longer and skinnier. Overall, I think that the snow leopards deserved a higher spot on the list but these are the reasons why I love the snow leopards. Here is a little side comment, I have made other articles on ...more

I love Snow Leopards, they are the most diverse in items that actually look good. For my rare folks out there, headdresses look great on them. For the other jammers, basically any mask you can find looks great on them. Also a fun tip I'll share with you guys: Put clown hair on a monkey or sheep cloak on a tiger, just do it.

I like the animation of the Snow Leopard - ArcticWolf

I always like to be a Snow Leopard! - ArcticWolf

8 Eagle

They are definitely one of my favorites! I play on AJPW so I think it is extremely cool to have one of the two flying animals ( I also own the falcon but not the point ) I don't know why they are so far, but idc what everyone thinks, because eagles are my favorite!

I really like how I can fly in the sky! - ArcticWolf

I love the body structure and shape of these, and the enchanted one's pattern is so kawaii. Owls are ofc better, and I have never owned one, but I would like to. - Phantomcat

In my opinion eagles are the best! They are one of the very few flying animals along with the owl and the new falcon. I mean this might be one of the main reasons why I love them but eagles and other flying animals get you amazing prizes from the forgotten desert, I got my rare spikes from it, it can be hard to get spikes from there I mean I have only gotten three from the adventure but it does happen, trust me if you take your time you will get a spike. Moving on, eagles are very majestic and cute. In conclusion eagles are one of the best animals in Jamaa.

9 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.

So cool with antlers around Christmas! Tomorrow is Xmas Eve!



Well, deers are so cute! And I love how they slant their neck a bit. Wish they weren't sapphires and were only in Christmas!

These animals are amazing, especially with antlers or gazelles! And also, they're cheap! - Phantomcat

10 Llama The llama is a domesticated South American camelid, widely used as a meat and pack animal by Andean cultures since the Pre-Columbian era.

Funny combinations

(llama noise) In my opinion, there is not a single probllama with them!

It's been a while since I was a llama - ArcticWolf

These are very good for St. Patricks looks and are cute, like an adult version of the sheep! - Phantomcat

The Contenders

11 Raccoon

I hate that every time you go online to animal jam or ajpw, the only animals you will be seeing are arctic wolves and foxes. Yes, there are tons of animals in animal jam to chose from; but most people only go for the overrated stuff thinking they will be treated like royalty. This is because arctic wolves and foxes often are symbolized as the so called "rare" because items desired by many people such as spikes are often seen on these animals. But here's what I think is rare, originality. I believe the raccoon should be treasured because so few people play as it very often.

These are so cool

They are awesome animals.

Oh yes! My first membership animal I ever bought in my entire life! - ArcticWolf

12 Owl Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes about two hundred 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.

Hoot, Hoot I'm an Owl say Hoot, Hoot I'm an Owl! - ArcticWolf


Owls are the bird of wisdom. Plus giant eyes are cute and cool! No questions asked

There a little scary when they twist there head but they look very nice

13 Arctic Foxes 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.

Cuter than normal foxes. Why aren't they higher up?

I LOVE arctic foxes! They are so pretty and I don't know why people hate them they are just adorable!

I love them, especially Bepper's! - Phantomcat

Bepper is my favorite YouTuber! So is Gellyjones! - ArcticWolf

14 Snakes 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.

Uhh. I think whoever added this may of thought pets were included! - ArcticWolf

This is not an animal jam animal. But it is a pet on animal jam and snakes as animals would be nice.

I think a snake would be awesome just slithering around. I think non members should be able to have then too.

I think they would be cool fair for non members and not diamond items they should have cobra or rattle snake

15 Tigers

I love tigers! - ArcticWolf

Tigers are surprisingly ROCK certain items, you just have to find the right one. Overall, while yeah the Tiger's shape isn't too great, they offer a fun challenge and aren't that common. I would love if we could see some more Tigers around Jamaa! It's the main animal I play.

I love tigers so much in real life, I really do, I study them. But I think animal jam just took a great proud animal and made it look like a joke! Tigers look so much better in real life. I think animal jam should change the tigers a bit and make them look a bit more awesome, like tigers really are. I think they did the same thing with lions.


16 Kangaroos

They are really rare to see in Jamaa, but if you want to see one

Username: Monkeygirl789 (I have a kangaroo) - ArcticWolf

Wow, these are pretty high in the list! These guys are one of my main animals and one of the cutest in my opinion. I prefer them over Arctic wolves. Top hats are so fabulous on them and other items look great too ( especially the rare polka dot tuxedo ;3) I got one right when they came back!

Sorry there so cute I love how they play okay and how they walk there so cute people get one now there so cool and cute smart and playful

They are made nicely and move well

17 Seals



I used to have a seal. - ArcticWolf

Come on, seals are cute and funny! Here are a few reasons why seals should be #1: 1. Seals are a land and ocean animal. 2. The play for seals are backflips. 3. Seals in real life are adorable same for animal jam too. 4. Seals are an option for non-members and members. Seals are one of my favorite animals. The only thing I don't get is why are regular wolves at the top? They look ugly in animal jam and they have their mouths open when they run. The only thing that they are popular for is for warrior cat clans. GO SEALS!

Seals seals seals, gotta love them darn seals. Items on these little critters are pretty stylish looking, that spiky hair you have on your item list, it looks really good on them. The way they stand when they're not moving just looks so cute, it's like standing up straight and nodding at the same time slowly. I comprehend you bro! : nods : lol. Their walking is pretty obvious, but funny-cute at the same time. They flop and flop all around Jamaa! For me, seals are the next side of cool put a silver chain and now we're talking. Finally, seals are one of my favorites in the real world, when they're pups, they're so cute. :D

18 Dolphins

I have one still! I like the flip when I go near the water, but somehow I prefer land more than water - ArcticWolf

These are adorable. It might be hard to find an ideal look, but they are one of the coolest water animals! - Phantomcat

Dolphins should be third

I got a dolphin like two days ago, I love it. I think you should get a dolphin because they are water animals, and they are really pretty and adorable at the same time.

19 Turtles

I like Turtlez! - ArcticWolf

I'm confused why nobody like's turtles...

"Because they're slow! "
"They're not cool! "
"Turtles are S000000 BORING! "

Turtles are fun in real life and as a pet, they look cute, their shell protects them from most predators (Born with armor! WOO! ), and some of them are big enough to actually sit on (no offense).

There's many other reasons why turtles are great, so hopefully someone else will have a kind word for them. If not, DON'T EVEN PUT A COMMENT HERE.

Turtles are great. They have a large heart and they are unique. Don't say turtles are ugly and BORING. They are wise animals and determined to reach a goal. Please, agree with me.

I LOVE turtles! It makes me upset when someone calls them weird or ugly(I had a turtle when I was little, his name was Jasper and he was so funny! not boring or slow at all)

20 Lions

Lions are back. by the way, I love the play animation on it too. I just sometimes like the lion roars. - ArcticWolf

In my opinion, animal jam kinda messed up the lion. Lions are one my favorite animal and I have one in Animal Jam. But animal should have a female lion model. It weird because only male lions have mane. Not female. I don't know how they would do it but still. And they kinda look like they have a hunchback but its poking in. I mean, some of the items look cool on it. Like spikes and top hats look cool on it. But I never see people play as them. Its really sad because lions are really awesome animals. I wish they would look like Simba from the Lion King AUA. -Badcatt

I only think that lions need improve just rather has very long long jaws that looks more retarded. Sorry.

I like the big main on the lion I don't think spikes look good on them they are to big it make the spike fat

21 Lynx A lynx is any of the four species within the Lynx genus of medium-sized wild cats, which includes the bobcat.

Lynxes are my main animal.

Lynxes are cute! - ArcticWolf

Well, I find out that lynxes are cool in real life, but in this game, it's looks bit cute and weird to same time. I find out, they look really good for role-playing as Warrior cats, and I don't know why this is for 10 diamonds too. They look little bit short and has incorrect colors, but I don't mind, they look too cute and so so, it's not cool as the Snow Leopards, but actually, they look like a Baby lynx.

I love lynxes, they are my main animal in play wild. In ajpw and aj,these fantastic animals are overshadowed by the snobby arctic wolf and the tacky fox. My top three favorite animals are the lynx (of course), otters ( they are just awesome), and the raccoon ( because they are clever animals and know more stuff than any other ordinary animal)

22 Penguin

Penguins are the best... VOTE!

It's been years since I had a penguin! - ArcticWolf

In ajpw, I see a LOT of penguins, or at least I used to. I think they should be higher, because you can get it at the very beginning of aj, even if you are a nonmember, like me.

Good boys, best boys!

23 Dogs

Dogs and Cats are both awesome! - ArcticWolf

Dogs are my favorite animal and I love them more than anything ask anyone but I don't think there should be dogs in aj because animal jam is a wild animal game and dogs are more house pets than a wild animal

I like animal Jam to add BOTH CATS and DOGS because like it's the common animals out there. Plus I love them both. - LolyOne

Dogs should be in animal jam cause they are cute and fun to play with and soe people that have arctic wolfs try to be dogs even though they are really a wolf type thing and look nothing like a dog

24 Cats

I am a big fan of Big Cats! Also a pet cat in Animal Jam is cute. - ArcticWolf

It's very fitting if Animal Jam releases a Modern Cat, it would be cool like other Non-Member animals, for 1000 Gems and perfect for the role-players playing with Warrior Cat stuff!

All cats are amazing and popular. I love my cheetah because it looks great with gazelle horns. I love my snow leopard because of its awesome " play " move. I don't have a lion yet so I can't support it sadly. But the tiger is awesome because of its tiny back paws and HUGE front paws. From, FroggyFerb.

Remember, cats contain lions, tigers, and snow leopards. So if you like all of them or one or two don't look for it somewhere else look for it under cats.

25 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 love the design and the spike is big if you put it on them! - ArcticWolf

In my opinion the cutest and most attractive (in cuteness obviously) animal in animal jam. Especially play wild. As I said In my other comment, ember bluestone is my main character in animal jam.

My main animal is a white hyena with a black mane and black spots and blue eyes and she is called ember.

Hyenas are awesome this is my favorite animal aj

26 Horses

Horses that are known so far:
1. Horse
2. Clydesdale Horse
3. Arabian Horse (AJPW) - ArcticWolf

Horses are the most amazing animal ever! Why AJ people don't put them in again, I don't know. But they really should.

I like horses because you get to turn them into zebras because zebras are my favorite animal

Why r they 23 that's so stupid they are really cool

27 Red Panda

SO CUTE! When they sleep, they don't even have feet, just nubs!


Red pandas! There are royal red pandas right now! - ArcticWolf

Red Pandas are so adorable and cute

Red pandas look even more adorable with headphones.

28 Bats

That will be on Animal Jam someday. - ArcticWolf

They should come to animal jam as another flying animal

Pet bats honestly look NOTHING like real bats. Animal Jam should totally have fruit bats(flying foxes)! They are the only flying mammal so they deserve a place in Animal Jam. Bats rule!

I love pet bats especially how they play

29 Monkeys

My first animal on my main account making the Raccoon the second. But the Raccoon was my first membership animal! - ArcticWolf

I have always loved playing as a monkey.

Why are monkeys number 50?! When I was six, I choose a monkey as my starting animal, since I loved monkey quest. They are amazing

I think monkeys have cool dance moves and play and they are easy to buy monkeys are great people please vote them

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

Goats are fun and I like the animations! goats are the best woop woop

The goat is my main look!

I think goats are really cool and not a lot of people play as them.

Goats are cute and fun

31 Butterflies

Pets - ArcticWolf

I like them as pets with angel wings makes them so cute daisy102

Why are they here?

They need to come to animal jam NOT I like them as a pet NOT

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

I sang I like to move it when the giraffe dances, sadly they are traveling still. - ArcticWolf

I think the giraffes should come back I REALLY want one and still don't have one

I got a giraffe I think there cool there tall and they do head stands when they play they do cool dance moves they sleep like one would they don't hop high but I don't mind they don't cost diamonds just 1000 gems witch is good giraffe is so cool please vote them

I was really sad that giraffes were member, but then I saw giraffes becoming non member. I literally flipped my chair that my favorite animal is non member.

33 New Pig

I love the pigs! They should be so much higher!

Oink! - ArcticWolf

Thank Goodness they are not for members and overload 10 Diamonds! As I expected that pigs gonna be over 10 Diamonds and for members, and I think it will disappoint me, but now the Animal Jam does the good thing!

I'm voting for pigs because they are non member animals that are actually super cool! They are realistic and don't look like weirdos like animal jam lions.

34 Koalas

I remember the Springbois or something (I Forgot) before Julian2 quit Animal Jam. - ArcticWolf

Koalas are grey in real life! Not brown! In real life, they are very cute. But in Animal Jam, they are ugly and they have a really big butt showing.

Why are they so far down?! There the best and they have such cute fuzzy ears.

There super cute there dance is adorable daisy102

35 Falcons

The video of it was funny! - ArcticWolf

They're just some awkward Eagle-knock off, if I though they would be a brown skin, and creamish body, but no. They're just some light purple ones, and... That's it, but it usually has white belly... That's just one of the worst colored animal for some reason. I find out the wolves, koalas, even owls, the colors are akward too, but all with them just alright, they're just made like cartoon, but falcons? They are BROWN! I'm not even find in Google Image! Cartoon and Real Life Falcons, nowhere I can't find any magneta, purple and etc falcon. At first, their actions are nothing compere to the eagle. Just some knock-off owls' actions. The dance moves are lame, just wingling arms or whatever... And play, It's some slow-motion dash, not like fast as cheetah speed, meh. And jump, It's alright, but not really high as the eagles, no plus for it. And sleep is not interesting, not like eagles sleeping on clouds, but USUALLY an rip-off from the Owls' sleeps, what? YOU CAN SLEEP OVER THE AIR! Or ...more

I think they are cool they fly faster than eagles in life and they look nicer in both life and animal jam

Be quiet Falcons are cool and great!

36 Rhinos

I starting to see users using Rhinos since they became a non-member animal. - ArcticWolf

Their really cool think its cool cause their si big no one has them any more :(

Sad, the rhino is almost my opinion that looks way better than the wolves, I mean the pandas is much better :/

Rhinos needs love too you know guys, they are actually awesome in real life!

37 Sharks

I hate sharks - ArcticWolf

I'm not a member, but I like how sharks look in animal jam. They stuck to their classic styles like the swirling and they look realistic too. Sharks have their mouth open all the time like, "Hey! How's it going'?! " The dance option for sharks is just priceless, I love it! I mean they sway to one side and then the other, it looks so cute and funny. That is great counting that sharks look pretty fierce in this game. Sharks sharks, gotta love them.

Sharks are pretty cool I don't want one but hate their teeth the other thing I like about them is they are tough and look coolio

I like sharks, but I hate how everyone runs away from me whenever I become a shark.

38 Jelly Fish

Pet - ArcticWolf

Yea... I totally love being a jellyfish...

Who in the world put this as an option!?

Actually, I WOULD like a jellyfish in animal jam, what would calm you better than the moves of a jelly

Umm We can't even play as a Jelly Fish, so I don't even know why it is even on this list.

39 Hedgehogs A hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae, in the eulipotyphlan family Erinaceidae.

Cutest future animal! - ArcticWolf

So very cute - nowwearepandafromaj

Pets worth better, just why play as animal? They just became only one smallest of the group than goats or bunnies...

Hedgehogs are so awesome and cute and they would be an awesome animal for members and non members

40 Spring Bunny

I remember them! - ArcticWolf

Although I don't have a spring bunny id love for animal jam to bring them back! They're flowers are so cool and cute! I don't understand why they are at the bottom of the list, plus they look great with headdresses!

I rlly wish I had a spring bunny they are cute

I wish they would bring it back and give 'm three animal slots

41 Elephants

Lol! I like how they fly with their ears! - ArcticWolf

I love elephants I think there cute when little I like there noise some got big ears but there dance moves are type of cool and playing is funny there tall and big and wearing some clothes make them look funny elephants are awesome

My friend has like 50 ELEPHANTS they are so adorable

There fat but kinda cute daisy102

42 Llamas The llama is a domesticated South American camelid, widely used as a meat and pack animal by Andean cultures since the Pre-Columbian era.

Lol more llamas! - ArcticWolf

This is the 2nd time I have seen this

THEY SO AWESOME! They look more detailed and they are sooo cool! They dance like a pro, and it's the coolest!

43 Pet Polar Bear

They're cute - ArcticWolf

Pet polar bears are ok but not my favorite pet


so cute

44 Crocodile

*dances as a Croc* *snaps* - ArcticWolf

I LOVE THE CROCODILE! ' U can make it whatever you want! An alligator, a crocodile and a DRAGON! ( that's if u have to withs and the head of course lol, anyway, the crocs are amazing, I have one myself and it has the skeleton head and wings and I have my own clan thing for dragons and I just love it! Every croc I have met are nice, playful, and funny

I JUST LOVE CROCODILES! Not many people have em, which will make you different. They're so cute and I just love them

The crocodiles are cool, since you can make them into dragons, I just don't like how their eyes look tiny.

45 Sea Turtle

Lol more! - ArcticWolf

I love sea turtles every time I join I always get one I love sea animals I hope the ocean will get popular soon!

Turtles are cool they live in the sea I got won on animal jam I think there cool they pose is funny and they dance is cool I think sea turtles are awesome people vote them

They are on here two times

46 Octopus The octopus is a cephalopod mollusc of the order Octopoda. It has two eyes and four pairs of arms and, like other cephalopods, it is bilaterally symmetric. It has a beak, with its mouth at the center point of the arms.

I use to have one! - ArcticWolf

Sad, they just way less popular than all water animals or than every animal on the game, just here, goats now more popular than the octopus... Poor things...

Octopi are the coolest water animal give them more love octopi haters!

Octopuses really need more love

47 Ferret The ferret is the domesticated form of the European polecat, a mammal belonging to the same genus as the weasel, Mustela of the family Mustelidae.

Pet Ferrets! - ArcticWolf

Ferrets would make otter fans that are non members feel better because ferrets are weasels too! I think ferrets are awesome and cute animals, and should definitely be in animal jam

They should come to animal jam as a main animal

The Ferret is so cute and adorable

48 Frogs

Frogs are cool I think they croak is funny I got a pet one on animal jam they hop they say rabbit like a animal that hops too frogs are great please vote frogs

Frogs aren't even a playable character! Only at the pets only party! Why is it even on this list?

My username includes frogs so I like them

I don't like them that much

49 Ducks

Pet I guessing - ArcticWolf

Give him grace you can't love a cute duck?

The ducks are so cute! I love them!

We don't even have ducks

50 Pandas

The dance animation is cute! - ArcticWolf

The should be at the top the last time I saw someone with a panda was a YEAR AGO! I can't believe it there my favorite and the should be in the top five the next time I see a panda I'm going to buddy them PANDAS RULE AND THE ALWAYS WILL! ye so you better listen peps (peace out pandas)and everyone
