23 Owl 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.

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.

Owls might look cool, but they aren't very smart. They are good at hunting, but that's it. They are nowhere near as smart as crows. - RaccoonCartoon

Owls are not dumb and they are very smart this comes forma a 11 year girl and a 9 yearamon old girl

24 Ostrich Ostrich

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 brain

Ostrich is like Swan. - AlphaQ

25 Cat Cat 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.

This isn't a top ten but cats are really stupid. They should all just kill themselves so that dogs can be the smarter of the common domestic animal pet list species animals.

Leave cats alone! (says someone who said that cats sometimes puss around farting earlier on this list)

Cats sleep. Doesn't mean they are dumb. You are for thinking that

Cats are really idiotic sometimes. They literally try jump over things that are way too long for them and they get injured. Dumbasses. - AlphaQ

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

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.

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.

Who ever voted for this (besides me) are the dumbest in the world. Goats are gods. GODS!

Goats are smart. The ones raped by Tyga are dumb. - AlphaQ

27 Velociraptor Velociraptor Velociraptor is a genus of dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived approximately 75 to 71 million years ago during the later part of the Cretaceous Period.

Dude, they were one of the smartest dinosaurs

I think that Jurassic park is a good movie

Dinosaurs aren't very smart, sorry. - RaccoonCartoon

Dude they are smart assessment. - AlphaQ

28 Monkey Monkey Monkeys are haplorhine primates, a paraphyletic group generally possessing tails and consisting of approximately 260 known living species.

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.

Monkeys are smart

Monkeys are smart. They can use tools and crack nuts with rocks. - RaccoonCartoon

All they do is masturbate. - AlphaQ

29 Pig Pig A pig is any of the animals in the genus Sus, within the Suidae family of even-toed ungulates. Pigs include the domestic pig and its ancestor, the common Eurasian wild boar, along with other species; related creatures outside the genus include the peccary, the babirusa, and the warthog.

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.

Pigs are very smart! They might have bad eyesight, but they can solve puzzles and successfully go through mazes. You guys gotta stop judging a book by it's cover. - RaccoonCartoon

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.

Ever read animal farm

30 Koala Koala The koala is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia. It is the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae and its closest living relatives are the wombats.

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.

31 Guinea Pigs Guinea Pigs The guinea pig, also called the cavy or domestic guinea pig, is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia.

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.

I think Guinea pigs are stupid

32 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.

Oh so you're basing this on The Lion King?

Lion King is a fictional movie. You shouldn't be hating on lions just because Simba should have killed his Dad. - RaccoonCartoon

Lions are smart

34 Earthworm

Earthworms are smart, if you think about it, can't a earthworm hear a mole digging, and a bird pecking the ground?

Tell me why they are smarter than the humans or the dogs, what they do? Digging like a blind as the moose and that's all you can say so? The ants is wayyy smarter than all thoes disgusting naked bugs.

35 Bear Bear Bears are mammals of the family Ursidae. Bears are classified as caniforms, or doglike carnivorans, with the pinnipeds being their closest living relatives.

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

Bears are not stupid infact they are smarter than humans

36 Crow

Crows are smart. If you attack one, it will take revenge on you BIG TIME. A crow will notify all the other crows, and then they'll all attack you in a flock, just like a scene from the classic ''Birds'' horror movie. They can also be trained to talk, but I would only want one as a pet if it was a friendly one. - RaccoonCartoon

Crows are actually very intelligent,

What!?! They're the smartest birds on Earth!

Um, guys, crows are the smartest birds on Earth! Smarter than whatever stupidhead put this on the list!

38 Cane Toad

Studies have shown that the cane toad might be one of the least intelligent vertebrates on Earth. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

39 Fly

Okay guys all animals are smart (Accept Humans) so leave them alone

They can see everywhere, meaning they need big vision receptors

In Winter, I actually miss flies. They are so hilarious! - RaccoonCartoon

Okay most people don't know this but flies have been found to be very smart! In fact scientist have looked under magnifieing glasses and say them finding really cool strategys to fight off other insects like ninja bugs!
