4 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.

I don't know why anybody would have a snake, they are so creepy!

I wanted snake as my pet

5 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.

If it is your desire to first have your wind cut off, and then to be eaten, then by all means, get a large feline, especially a Tiger, for a pet. Felines don't do that whole Master/Pet thing very well. Any animal in a captive state will do what it has to do to survive. But always keep in mind, Tigers are unrivaled in their position at the very top of the natural food chain, they view humans like they view every other creature in their world, as a food source. - Ned964

6 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.

Saw some Wolves at a farm in Central Minnesota. Some were extremely aggressive towards any new people there, and some were docile. There must be something in their pecking order that determines this. Anyway, some of the folks with us were able to pet and have there picture taken with the docile females, but those big, aggressive males were kept in a separate enclosure and they constantly "stalked" anyone who was new there. They are very intimidating animals to be sure - Ned964

11 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.

14 Leopard 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 more.

These are dangerous Hunters. They should be higher up.

15 Hornet Hornet Hornets are the largest of the eusocial wasps, and are similar in appearance to their close relatives yellowjackets. Some species can reach up to 5.5 cm in length.

Just don't do it. - Userguy44

16 Cats Cats 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 colours and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated.

Behind those eyes lie the mind of a near perfect killer. They're far more independent than many realize, and believe me, if they don't find a home suitable to their needs, the males especially, will simply leave. While it's relatively safe to care for a so called "domesticated cat", never lose the respect due to such a unique creature. Our cats are perfectly willing, in most cases, to work in a partnership with us, as long as we hold up our end of the bargain. Many less intelligent creatures have grown dependent upon us for their survival, just remember, cats are fine with taking care of themselves. - Ned964
