Top 10 Dumbest AnimalssamuelMCL7
The Top Ten
Only an organism as stupid as humans would collectively shun its own capacity for intelligence and ingenuity in favor of entertainment and laziness, would allow itself to invent and subscribe to the concept of racial differences within its own species in order to justify violence, would actively try to kill other members of the same species instead of finding a way to meet everyone's basic needs, would continue to breed when living in a situation where it has not the resources to survive, would invent religion as another means to justify violence against other members of the species, would favor greed over truth, would collectively look the other way when its own species was responsible for actively destroying the only feasible home it has within several digits of light years, would angrily and aggressively defend its decisions to do these things even when evidence of how foolish they are is presented, would become so fearful of potentially being wrong and having to grow and change ...more
We as a society lack a lot of intelligence. Therefore, we are the dumbest. End of story
If we simply compare the intellectual potential to its application, human beings would rank pretty low compared to most creatures which have to use their greatest skills and evolve them on a day to day basis.
In the last few centuries we have cut ourselves off our natural environment, dulled our natural senses with technological constructs that do more harm than good and have single handedly wiped out more species than any other living entity in the history of the planet (perhaps). We continue to eat other species even though we have the intelligence and physical ability to survive without harming other creatures in the world. We still haven't discovered the ability to relocate from the only known habitable planet and yet continue to devastate our existing home at a rapid and irreversible rate. Definitely dumber than all others. Well summed up by Hugo Weaving in the Matrix
Just look at this planet, it's dying because of humans. Not to mention that humans kill each other and judge each other because of their looks. - Smash64V 157 Comments
Not even an animal... HAHA I GET IT! One of the humans made this since the humans are #1 lol
I think it's dumb to put humans over this because, if we weren't smart, we wouldn't be the dominant species on earth.
Dumbest is synonym of unintelligent, not inactive or vegetative... A sponge is not "dumb", it can't even show any form of intelligence. So how could it be the animals with a low intelligence?
Yeah in definition it's an animal, but if we start including those who can't "think" or do anything more than what their handful neurons can make them do (like insect) it will never end.
Otherwise we could add sea cucumber, krill, any individual insect, jellyfish, etc. without even knowing which one is the dumbest: there's even no way to measure their intelligence at that level... if we can barely call it "intelligence". - jonathan117

Amoebas are protists so yeah, they can't dab or fap.
Amoeba is a plant, it can't do simple things animals do like dab, run around or fap. - AlphaQ
Wasps are not only annoying and scary, but they are also very unintelligent. They will sting windows for absolutely no reason, and if you open a door to let it out, it will either ignore the easy way out, or not notice.
This list is DUMB - Mranonymously
Roach's are actually extremely intelligent. They have been known to swarm Mexicans at a moment's notice. As displayed in Sigmund Freud's 2013 article, "The Roach's are the Mostest", he detailed how they are taking over the world's economy. We need to build a wall before the roaches come for us.
If they're so dumb why can't I kill the damn things.
Every time I see a Roach I just sweep it out of the door or sometimes capture them in a tissue and put them in the garbage bin
Cockroaches are so so goodly intelligent. You don't deserve to make this listV 6 Comments

They have a five minute memory and cannot live without humans. That makes them a dumb animal who cannot adapt to change. They also kill babies and frail elders.
Dogs are packed with a to of Intelligence. If this was on the list, I would still be against this, since this is not true!
Dogs aren't dumb. They're one of the most intelligent animals ever! - Peppapigsucks

I don't care what anyone says, they are adorable and to the person who said the mom kills the child, they are capable of NOT killing them you know. And if bamboo is the source of their stupidity, how can you blame them for what they like eating. It is like people. If you like cheeseburgers, then that makes you fat. Don't eat them.

Donkeys are so lazy and stubborn.

Cows are smarter than horses where barbed wire fences are concerned. I have on more than a few occasions witnessed a horse run full force into a barbed wire fence get tangled and rip itself to shreds trying to escape. On the other hand, I have watched a cow in the same situation stop moving and stand there until they could extricate themselves without further injury. This would be one of the reasons horses should be pastured using board or equivalent fencing and never barbed wire.
Cows are actually really smart. They can feel a wide variety of emotions, can open difficult gates and can even worry about the future
They're smarter than sheeps. - Userguy44
They be smarter than a lot of thingsV 8 Comments
They're walleyed, and will eat until they die if they get hold of an unlimited food source. They stand around in their own poop, and are too dumb to destinguish a slight breeze from a grizzly bear, resulting in the majestic beast throwing their unfortunate rider/food source from their backs in the process of saving their own skins. They lack intelligence on all levels. The seemingly deep and tear-filled look in their eyes is not the result of their mourning for freedom and the love of man. They're just to dumb to blink, and it irritates their big stupid eyes.
Umm NO this is commonly believed by many people that horses are dumb but I have been around horses for about three years and I would know horses are very intelligent in fact they have even been said to have better memory than elephants and do you realize these animals have been used for centurys? Yeah horses are very intelligent so whoever put horses on this list has never been around horses.
Horses are my favorite animal and they are very smart and they are dangers and it takes them a long time to learn but they are very kind sweet and they can hurt you but the are very harmful and once you get to know them you will under stand that they don't like to hurt you. people hurt them to make them hurt you I know a lot about them and they don't deserve to be treated like that.
Horses aren't stupid. They're very useful because they're fast. Before cars, horses were the only transportation, and they are really fast. When one rides a horse, that person is like a medieval hero or a western defender with true grit like Rooster Cogburn. I myself would just love to ride a fast horse. I imagine myself doing it while I hear the song Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi in the background.V 20 Comments
Untrue. Tigers are intelligent. - Userguy44
Tigers aren't stupid. They are the mightiest cats of the wild. They're the cat kings. They're fierce, fast, agile, and strong. I consider a tiger as my inner animal. They are at the top of the food chain.
Tigers are extremely smart and they are apex predators that hunt the best way
Tigers are very smart because they can sent danger from far distance.V 8 Comments
I thought ants are smart. - AlphaQ
Complex society =/= intelligence. Individual ants aren't very intelligent at all. There's a reason it's so easy to trap them and trick them.
Ants are the smartet bugs of all time - Toptenanimallovers
Ants may be small but it does not mean they are not intelligent.V 7 Comments
They only respond to threat, prey, or convenience. Not sure how impressive that is. They don't respond to most social cues and even make prey of unnecessary creatures and objects...
How are cats not in the top ten, I can never trust people on this site to rate things intelligently, go figure!
They chase light for goodness sake!
Cats run away from a cucumber and jumping into doors they get scared of the random objects - ToptenanimalloversV 21 Comments
Koalas have primitive, smooth, and proportionately small brains. A koala only knows routine and cannot use logic to perform tasks that deviate from its normal routine (such as eating leaves off of a plate). They are not a creature of thought, especially considering that they sleep through most of the day...
Recent reacher and studies have discoverd that Koalas are the dumbest and least successful mammal on Earth. While not the dumbest animal, it is the dumbest mammal, It is so dumb that it's possible that there average IQ category is Idiot (0-29 IQ points), it's brain is only 2 percent of there body weight, the smallest brain-to-body ratio, it's brain is also extremely smooth even smoother then a human with Alzheimer desease. A smooth brain in evolutionary slang means a extremely dumb animal and Koalas are also stupid enough that it cannot distinguish a real tree from a drawing or painting of a tree, it's also stupid enough that it won't eat food that's on a plate as there definition of food is that: Food is green things on a bark or a tree. The leaves that they eat are very low in nutrient and not even edible and are very poisonous, as a result they have Immune systems dedicated to prevent the individual Koala to die while eating it. This combine with the thing above makes Koalas the ...more
One of the dumbest animals who show a form of intelligence, even if it's one of the lowest
(contrary to sponge or individual insect who can't even be considered dumb since they don't have any form of intelligence).
-Take a leaf, which he was about to reach for consumption, in a tree and put it in a plate. He won't be able to know what to do with that leaf: he can't figure out that it is still food.
-Low intelligence because of their smooth brain. - jonathan117
Koalas are so stupid that they needed to develop immunity to the leaves they eat, because they are too stupid to know not to eat them.V 4 Comments
Why people being so mean to the snails? I mean they not may smart but they smarter than turkeys or sloths.
Actually, their shell is their for a reason. You are thinking bout slugs
They can't even go fast. Any animal could eat them.
Snails are stupidV 2 Comments
Dumbest animals on Earth! They make plants and fungi look like complex intellectual organisms by comparison! All they do is whine, eat until they pop, and poop an pee all over the place! I saw a video were a Guinea pig was in a boa's tank for quite a while and it didn't even notice the danger until the snake killed that little sucker! Dumbest, things, ever!
Sorry folks but THIS is why they test guinea pigs
Guys, maybe Guinea pigs are just a tiny bit dumb but smarter than people think in fact I think they are as smart as mice, take it from a Guinea pig owner.
Guinea pigs are VERY cute and fun! But... They are not the smartest. I don't hate them or dislike them! They just, well, are not the brightest light bulb in the room.V 1 Comment
Ostrich are smart it's a myth that they put there head in thr sand - Toptenanimallovers
They actually do not smash their heads in sand
I think so because when they hid ether pit there head in a hole and when they can't see anything they think no one can see them
Dude that is a myth, I think the ostrich might be smarter (than you) - ILOVEANIMALS
Ostriches have a funny rep to be dumb because their eyes are bigger than their brainV 2 Comments
No goats are scientifically proven to be very smart in fact they have gone through test and have been known to be smart enough to know what each light switch can do.
Who ever voted for this (besides me) are the dumbest in the world. Goats are gods. GODS!
They are so dumb. If you come toward them at all, they automatically think you brought them food. You reach out of touch them? They think you're giving them food. They see a fence? They must headbutt it. They also make a dumb noise. They literally sound like they are puking or burping, it is so weird.

Guys, you know how it goes that owls are the wisest among animals? Well sorry for you owl lovers but they are not actually very smart, for a long time people have thought they were very wise animals but, according to some study's they have actually been proven to be very dumb birds and one of the dumbest animals for that matter, so now you know, myth busted
Owls aren't stupid. If they were, then Harry Potter wouldn't get Hedwig. I say that Snowy Owls are the most useful owls in the USA and in the United Kingdom.
Hate to break it to you, but owls are the dumbest bird of prey. Look it up
Owl are smart because they have night vision and they now how to live in the wild.V 7 Comments
Primates like monkeys aren't stupid. If they were, Tarzan wouldn't be a mighty jungle hero and King Kong wouldn't be the world's fiercest ape.

Nope guys this is totally wrong pigs are actually VERY intelligent and according to some study's they have been found to be as intelligent as dolphins and 3 year old human children so guys just do more study before putting animals in the "Dumb" category.
"Then Napoleon had an idea. He would destroy the rest of the animals by getting a whole army of disgusting furries. When he assembled it, he attacked the rest of the farm the next morning, including his fellow pigs. Luckily, the rest of the animals drove the furries out and imprisoned Napoleon..." - MarkTheFox
Pigs are some of the stupidest animals I've ever met, and this is from someone who worked at a pig farm. If a pig sees an opening no matter how big, it thinks it can fit through it.
Pigs are very intelligent. They try to fit through because they're just trying to get our any way they can. - InfinateSuperstorm
Pigs almost can be smart as chimpanzees and others! Well, you can say they have a poor eye sight, but they are clever as anything!

Your a mole
Well, wolves kill for fun too. As for how intelligent bears are, the average bear is more intelligent than you think. Bears are not nearly as intelligent as humans, but they're still pretty smart. Scary and dangerous, but smarter than most people think.
Just because they are bad or kill things, how are they dumb? They can just stand from the water and fish some food, that's a technic/strategy?! They now how to get honey safely from bees. Baby bear cubs run up trees to get away from threats. COM'ON PEOPLE!
Dude just look on the Internet these animals are extremely intelligent, no joke it's just amazing

I think that spider is "stupidly" large
Don't get me wrong, I like buffaloes and I like all other animals as well. But they're pretty dumb. I've seen a video where a crocodile grabs a buffalo by its cheek and the other buffaloes just stare and watch the other poor buffalo dragging the crocodile outside the water until it lets go. So yea. by the way this list is dumb and the people here.
So wrong this list is junk
Mule are not dumb, they know their limits better than horses. - Toshin
Eats bamboo when it's a carnivore. This gives it low nutrients so it has a low sex drive.. Oh they also live in mountainous regions then travel to the base to eat the bamboo then climb back up. Can only get pregnant 3 days in a year. Mother's could care less about their babies, too.
They have the digestive system of a carnivore, but they only eat bamboo.
They either roll over their babies, try to kill the crying cubs, or only take one of them in. - Goatworlds
I think pandas are cute..V 3 Comments
