Top 10 Most Overrated Animals
I hate dog nutters more than I dislike dogs in general. They are not animal lovers as they only care about the welfare of dogs. They could care less about animal rights for cats, smaller pets like rodents and fish which are abused way more than dogs, farm animals, and wild animals. They think people who simply dislike dogs are comparable to Hitler (ironic as he was a dog lover himself) and disrespect and invalidate dog attack victim's trauma. There are some sensible owners out there and well-behaved canines but the dog obsession here in the US has gone too far.
Dogs are not smarter than cats and I have biological proof to back me up. Cats can learn many tricks, but they need to gain your loyalty first, while a dog will just go along with whatever you say. That's a little too trusting, isn't it? Most dogs have been bred so much that they have been dumbed down. Now don't even get me started about people saying they are cute. Yes, I love some dogs, but flat-faced Pugs are ugly and monstrosities to nature. Every single dog has been genetically bred, making them against nature by existing. If you like dogs, fine, but I lose it when people say they are more intelligent than cats. The fact that they trust the first person they meet does not make them smart.
Cats are not overrated at all. There are a few dogs who deserve all the credit we can give them (such as police dogs and seeing-eye dogs), but most are overrated. So many people adore dogs that there is an whole annoying subculture of people that treat their dogs like children and call them "furbabies". Most dogs are genetically programmed to give unconditional affection to anyone and everyone whether they deserve it or not. They have therefore gained a reputation among their fans of being loving animals. Dogs love people in an obnoxious, clingy way that only dogs can. They will destroy your house and bark incessantly if you leave them alone too long. They will follow you everywhere and never give you a moment's rest.
However, not all dogs love people. While people tend to fear sharks and snakes, a fear of dogs would be far more rational. From 2005 to 2017, dogs killed 284 Americans, about one citizen every 16.7 days.
People claim dogs are a better specimen than cats, though, not all may agree. As dogs in my opinion are much too overrated. Dogs may be able to help fight off unwanted house intruders, but not all may, as do cats. Some cats can actually defend off house intruders if trained similar to dogs. Dogs may be excited when you come home from a long days work, but cats have their own way to express their excitement. Not every cat is the same and people need to realize that. Every specimen of cat, every type, every individual cat.
They hunt everything, smell... Cat pee smell is almost as bad as fox. Ecosystem, while we can blame ourselves mostly, suffers because of them too. They hunt down birds, lizards, small mammals, everything! People who love them are crazy-mad when somebody doesn't like cats, simply, not even hate them. There are chill ones, like my friend, but... Anyways I dislike them probably more because of owners, if they didn't let them out unsterilised so they can hunt and reproduce, their fans aren't that bad as dog nutters tho.
In all honesty, why would you want a cat? They are ugly, (in most cases to me, but That's just preference) they useless, lazy, they are unintelligent, they are replaceable, they are invasive pests that ruin the environment more than dogs, they can spread plenty of diseases (too), they are disposable, they are weak, they are timid, they are cowardly, and they are especially most of all.. worthless.
Honestly, cats are also extremely dumb, especially like their bigger relatives. For one, a cat can't even understand up to 35 words, they can't even understand any human languages, (which means they don't understand much of what you're even saying, especially since they don't even have the cognitive skills to) they have especially failed many iq tests, (some recently, and some of them were motivated) they aren't even capable or better at quantitative thinking than dogs at all, etc... etc...
By all the reasons and many other reasons out there, I don't see how anyone would like a ...more
Actually, I find them overhated. Sure, there are cat memes and all, but in real life, so many people hate cats. I think the most common reason to strongly hate all these creatures is because they say things like "cats don't love you", or "cats hate you and want to murder your family" and "dogs save people where as cats just poop in a box and hate you and kill babies". First of all, science has proven that cats DO bond with their loving owners, and actually grow very attached. Second, what idiotic superstition made you think they want to kill you? Unless you abuse them (in that case, you should look behind you now and then, and sniff your drink for poison if you have abused cats, because they love revenge), they have no reason to really hate you. Third, I'm happy to say that there have been cases where cats saved their owners' life, and a cat even jumped into a burning building to save her kittens. She got some nasty burns, but she and her kittens ended up safe. Fourth, um, no, cats ...more
I freaking hate cats. They are so overestimated, they suck. "Ooh, but cats are cool fearsome hunters, bla bla bla"! Cats aren't THAT GREAT at hunting, sure they have predators too! come on, they're only like secondary consumers.
First of all, I don't think they're evil or bad, but I think they're overrated as heck now. I see wolfaboos on the internet saying that wolves are angels that will rescue any defenseless being. First of all, They are only loyal to the ones in their pack and I don't think they'd care about you if they did not think you were part of the pack. Plus, They are just animals and are no more important than any other mammal, they are pretty average animals and definitely not as saintly or godly as some people assume. Plus, I saw a youtube channel with tons of subscribers and tons of likes but all he does is make animations of wolves attacking people and biting them to death. I don't hate wolves but the obsession with them has gone too far.
This should be number one. Wolves are very average animals, nowhere near as OP as people make them out to be. I find it so annoying listening to these wolf-lover girls talk about how "similar" they are to wolves, and how they share a "connection" with this "beautiful, mysterious creature" and how it's their "spirit animal". Wolf-lovers whine about how "nobody understands" them, and always picture themselves as very beautiful, mysterious, and alluring to others. They are always very stuck up, and believe that they are for some reason "loved" by wolves, love to play the victim, and never own up or admit that they were wrong. Ugh, the worst type of animal lover.
I find it odd it's all the way at #10. If you have a decent amount of friends, you must have one that is a wannabe wolf or a wannabe loner. Well guess what, lone wolves usually die so I don't understand what the hype is about. And alpha wolves usually help the pack, not kill intruders. Wolves aren't the strongest animals in the world, I could name 3 carnivores off the top of my head that could kill a wolf with ease. Elephants, tigers, lions. I don't see anyone giving them as much attention, but wolves are actually not as cool or OP as you think. If you're the alpha, you're basically the father of the entire pack, you're not some cool wolf with a scar on his left eye that somehow doesn't blind him. And how they represent the other wolves as citizens, if you're not fit; you will be either kicked out the pack or killed trying to stay. There aren't any 'elder' wolves, because those are usually sacrificed to eat if there isn't enough food. Don't start all the "the pack treat each other ...more
Very overrated, furry mascot and all the 14 year olds will scream on you if you don't like them. Their hierarchy is also bad, wolves are quite weak when without pack.
Great white sharks are overrated among sharks. Nature programs should show other species more often.
They are mindless eating machines. Enough said
Don't you know people kill more sharks than sharks killing people
Movies have made Lions seem like great animals, but truly, they aren't. Males take over prides by killing the former leader and his cubs, and while it's the lioness who hunt, the males still get to eat first. The lioness eat whatever is left, and the cubs get stuck with scraps. Lots of people love lions because of "The Lion King" and don't actually study lions at all, because they truly aren't the great, heroic animal people make them out to be.
The lion is not the king of the jungle. For starters, they don't even live in the jungle! Lions are actually quite lazy creatures, they're weak and if they had to run after a gazelle they wouldn't catch up. In my opinion their are many other animals which could be "the king of the jungle", such as the bear, snakes, Jaguars, etc... The lion deserves to be 1st on this list by far.
Though lions aren't as overrated as wolves, they are still too popular. Though they have a unique mane and roar, it doesn't mean that they are better than other creatures. I agree with everyone else about the Lion KIng giving the hyenas a terrible reputation. Hyenas are pretty interesting animals as well, because the female hyenas are bigger than the males and often leaders of their clan. Which is rare for a mammal because males are in most cases are the dominant sex. Did you know that a hyena isn't a dog, nor a cat? Another fact is that hyenas are really intelligent, having the cognitive ability of a young child.
Don't get me wrong, lions are good animals but I have a serious disliking to The Lion King and all of it's characters. The movie also gave spotted hyenas a bad rap and unacceptable role. And "king of the beasts"? Why not share the title with other animals once in a while? Tigers are physically larger than lions (I think), while foxes do a better job with adaptability. But that doesn't mean that lions are bad. All animals should have equal respect, in my opinion.
THE MOST overrated of all. Humans may have created things like technology and bla bla bla, but because you're a human, doesn't mean that they are the best species in the world or something. They actually aren't the greatest hunters, they are just secondary consumers. Humans suck, stick to other animals.
While we humans have done great things, we're not the greatest things that ever happened. We're not even the most important things that ever happened. If it weren't for plants, micro-organisms, or water, we would be nothing. Plus, it is kinda funny that several people don't think that we're animals, but we are. We just have big brains and opposable thumbs, and while we done great things in the world, we done a lot of bad things too. Let's hope our only 2 real benefits don't kill us.
We have done amazing, impressive, and incredible things. But we are still overrated. First hear me out, we have created weapons but what if we remove those weapons? Would an unarmed human win against a bear or gorilla just because they are more intelligent?
We humans have caused more death and destruction than any species on this list. there's the holocaust, hunting so many amazing animals to extinction, all those conquerors in history, the Mongolians slaughtering 40 MILLION PEOPLE and so on. humans are defienetly overrated and should be number one. just cause we made technology a thing does not automatically make us the best species on earth.
now please get this more votes.
Alligators are overrated, if anything caimans and gharials are underrated not crocs and gators.
This bird is shown way too much on bird seed packages, covers of bird books, and Christmas items, though it doesn't really have anything to do with Christmas. So many other yard birds are neglected by comparison.
Everyone loves eagles and makes books and movies and YouTube Videos about beause they are so "cool" because they eat foxes and sheep. Bald Eagles are OK because they only eat fish and smaller birds, but Golden Eagles have always been my least favorite animal for a special (not in the good way) reason.
Really!? Some birds are impressive and don't deserve to be on the list. Owls, Eagles, Flamingos, etc are worth seeing at the zoo. The less impressive birds should stay on the list though
Birds are beautiful animals, but most don't belong in captivity. Many are unhappy is capivity. They typically ar fairly mean to humans as well. Leave birds in the wild where they belong!
They feed their children they're own droppings, They are rude and terrifying under that fluff..
People are always like "awww, koalas are the cutest things ever! " when they are one of the dumbest animals in the world, as do nothing but sleep.
Well, it is true they mainly sleep. But they're also so fluffy and cute!
Too many people watch them at zoos. All they do is sleep.
I really don't get all the dislikes. Tigers would never fight bears in the wild because they live in different habitats, and they probably wouldn't willingly fight. I'm just saying that if they fight for survival, the bear would typically win
People think they can easily win against bears, even the grizzly. But bears can actually crush tigers.
They can win against lions but that's just because of their size.
They get way to much attention, everyone always talks about how they are mistreated at aquariums like sea world and should be freed but they never say anything about all the other animals at the aquariums like sharks, octopuses, seals, otters, eels, dolphins, penguins, polar bears, alligators and fish. and what makes them so much more important than the other aquatic animals? is it because they look cool or something? I just don't see why they get so much more attention to be freed than other aquatic animals.
They are intelligent, but They are not the destructive forces that we think they are. I'm fact if your talking about king of the sea or most powerful predator of the sea in modern day are bull sperm whales. Bull sperm whales are probably much stronger than orcas and orcas would not dare to attack an full grown adult bull sperm whale which weights much 3x bigger than them.
Bull sperm whales, giant and colossal squids could probably beat this animal in a fight. They are not the destructive animals we think they ar
Rhinos are cool, they charge at things.
They kill people
When there are other endangered animals that need to be saved, pandas are the top ones just because they're cute. Koalas are endangered, yet cuter. Save the koalas!
People think they so cute but once they're start attacking yea good luck with that cute thing.
Take koalas off the list, they are cute and nobody really likes them that much. They are better than pandas
Pandas are by far the worst animals in the galaxy. It was so stupid and overrated I'm sure everybody loves it except for me. I hate it so much that I hate it more than bugs because everybody's like, "AW! IT WAS SO CUTE! " And I heard everyone say, "It was the most endangered animal in the world! " Come on. More than A THOUSAND PANDAS. Panda lovers are just plain stupid. There's a kind of fox less than 600. A kind of one-eye-hammerhead shark with one left. Pink Dolphins less than 100, and dinosaurs EXTINCT. Now you know how bad they are. They are NOT CUTE AT ALL. And last time our Chinese teacher said we should create an essay about animals and needs to do a presentation and give others scores. A person did pandas and I gave her 0%. People are childish enough to call it "giant panda." Really? Look at it's fat shape. You called it giant. I heard ridiculous people say: "Hey! A panda gave birth to a giant panda! " Uh, how do you explain about this------------(too many bad word adjectives) ...more
Okay, dinosaurs are cool, but... oh my god how do I explain this. Now the t.rex was just getting WAY too much hype when the ankylosaurus could just snap their legs by swinging their tails. You search randomly "the best dinosaur" and t.rexes are ALWAYS number one. Like, what's so cool about them? They're just another species of predators, not a hell-destroying, earthbreaking and universe-shaking dinosaur which isn't that cool at all. Everywhere you see about dinosaurs, all they talk about were t.rexes. Besides, it was so overrated now nobody knew any dinosaur except for t.rexes. I tried to search about other way cooler dinosaurs like raptors and all that pops up were t.rexes. What's so good about it?
Not the strongest out of all dinosaurs. This guy would probably lose to ankylosaurus and sauropods that are 80 feet long or bigger. Even giganotosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus might have a close chance. A cool dinosaur, but other dinosaurs deserve more respect, but thanks to this guy? Nope.
It was still tougher than Spinosaurus, who's jaws weren't suited for attacking other large dinosaurs.
There are much better and more unique dinosaurs out there, plus it was actually a scavenger.
They really cute and underrated.
Every little girl is completely obsessed with them and I'm sick of it. They're obsolete in my country anyways.
There's nothing special about them. I don't quite understand horse people
Underrated. People consider them as pests but they are really beautiful animals. they are so graceful and pretty
No wonder they get hunted.
Polar bears don't deserve all of the conservation they're getting. They're not even endangered! They are actually classified as vulnerable. There are other, lesser-known animals that are in far more danger of extinction, like the southern hairy-nosed wombat, of which there are less that 100 left in existence! We should first focus our money on protecting and conserving critically endangered animals like the southern hairy nosed wombat, because they need it most. Then we should put money towards protecting animals like polar bears. I'm not saying we shouldn't conserve polar bears, I'm just saying that they don't need our protection as much as some other species.
People think of them like cute and smart babies. They are actually psychopathic killing machines which can rip your face off.
Just because they are our closest cousins dosen't mean they aren't still wild animals. They will throw stuff at you and kill each other.
People just like like them for their strips take them off you basically get a donkey.
Striped donkeys, I agree.
I hate how teachers teach little kids about foxes as though they are the most dangerous animals alive. Whenever I see one it just runs off and I never see it again.
This is the most overrated animal. They're not even that cute. Quit acting like they're the return of Jesus or something. They're nothing special.
Maybe the worst smelling animal on the planet. Just a skunk in a gaudy outfit.
People are using Foxes way to much, it's just annoying!
Don't miss with them
