Top 10 Most Overrated Animals
I have no idea why cats are higher on this list because so many people hate cats. There are very few people I know who hate dogs though.
Why are cats above dogs? And why do people love dogs more, what have they done better than cats. And why are dogs good almost 99% of the time in media
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.
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
People when someone kicks a dog or a cat: ZoMg how DARE that monster kick de heckin' cute fluffer pupperno y kittye kat dae deswerve to diiiieeeeeeeeee a slow painful deathh!
People when they see millions of farm animals being slaughtered for food, pet fish, birds, reptiles, and rodents being cooped up in small bowls and cages with barley any food, and psychopathic children torturing insects for fun: Lol they ain't smart like dogs so their lives don't matter. Also bacon yummy, peta bad, pupperinos good, and checkmate vegans!
Um, why are cats on this list? Everyone around me is always underestimating them. It's pretty obvious that cats don't belong on this list.
Yes. They are overrated but also underrated. I think I know why but I will not say because people will hate me for it. I like tabbies because I have one but I think the warriors series is one reason why they're overrated
I agree with all of you, wolves are overrated. But some species of wolves deserve more attention. For example, the red wolf and Ethiopian wolf. Though they are smaller and weaker than their popular overrated gray wolf counterparts, they are actually ENDANGERED and they are quite interesting creatures. So if you are going to love wolves and have a wolf fursona, could you pay more attention to the rarer species of wolves instead of your precious gray wolf. It would help out a lot.
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
Wolves take this by a long shot. They are terribly overrated animals. First off wolves are very average in terms of carnivore intelligence. Second, gray wolf packs are not happy little families like wolfaboos would lead you to believe, in a wolf pack you are either respected or treated like dirt. Take the omega for example. The omega wolf is the punching bag of the wolf pack and they often die of malnutrition and sometimes the other wolves gang up and kill the omegas for giggles. Third, wolves are not gods of the animal kingdom. One wolf cannot kill one bear or puma ( Have you seen the video of the cougar who killed a lone wolf? ) One wolf would get ripped to shreds by a bear, crocodile, tiger, or lion.
No one has put a comment here so I will. LIZARDS HAVE SHORT LIFE SPANS
Great white sharks are overrated among sharks. Nature programs should show other species more often.
Don't you know people kill more sharks than sharks killing people
They are mindless eating machines. Enough said
Right: mindless eating machines/monsters
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.
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.
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!
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.
Koalas are so overrated tbh , it pisses me off , they just aren't as great as they seem , and are very dangerous.
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.
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.
Yep so right. In the Lion King, Mufasa was racist against hyenas and didn't care if they starved, or died. He would just kill them. Like in The Lion King, hyenas get more hate than spiders in real life! If we saw a spider we would probably run away from it, but Mufasa or Simba would KILL a hyena that's a millimeter in the Pridelands. This is why I hate lions.
I simply don't get why everybody seems to like them so much! Sure they're quite beautiful and "Kings(...)" BUT, compared to other animals, thery're pretty weak. Especially the male lions, which are overrated( simply because of theirs mane) although they mostly sleep or eat.
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
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.
Yeah and many tiger fanboys say it can win against the lion although it would actually be 50/50
They can win against lions but that's just because of their size.
How are they overrated they are just well known
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
I want to Lenny face a horse their heads are so hot
Horses are just boring farm animals
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 have done some impressive and good things. But we are not the most important thing that has every happend in the world In 500 million years or more. We have caused a lot of destruction and have created weapons of mass destruction too.
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 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.
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.
I think everyone makes a fuss about polar bears being endangered. This means they shall not become extinct, as everyone cares about them so much. I am not saying that we should not worry, but we should worry about the lesser, more endangered creatures such as several varieties of insects, for example.
p.s The same goes for pandas, but they are more endangered.
p.p.s Climate change is real.
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 ...more
Take koalas off the list, they are cute and nobody really likes them that much. They are better than pandas
People think they so cute but once they're start attacking yea good luck with that cute thing.
They snooze too much. Red pandas are better
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.
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?
Tyrannosaurus is not as strong of a dinosaur as people think. They get too much credit in the first place
It was still tougher than Spinosaurus, who's jaws weren't suited for attacking other large dinosaurs.
People just like like them for their strips take them off you basically get a donkey.
Striped donkeys, I agree.
Don't miss with them
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.
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!
Come on every furry uses them they are hella ovrated and should be number 1
Did you know that they run in short bursts of speed and need to rest for 15 to twenty minutes after each run.
Cheetahs are really fast but they are really weak.
Basically as overrated and dumb as a cat.
People think that just because they are fast, they can beat a wolf but cheetahs will actually lose to most other fighters
Dolphins can often be a little too friendly if you know what I mean...
Dolphins are my least favorite cetacean
Dolphins is not always friendly!
They're not always friendly. They can be very aggresive
Underrated. People consider them as pests but they are really beautiful animals. they are so graceful and pretty
No wonder they get hunted.
overrated to kill
Alligators are overrated, if anything caimans and gharials are underrated not crocs and gators.
Very overrated but they don't compare to crocks though
Nothing makes them cool really
I hate crocodiles SO MUCH
Def a cool dinosaur, but just because they are the biggest dosen't mean it's the strongest. Spinosaurus is a fish eater and t rex, carcharodontosaurus and giganotosaurus (giga is my favorite dinosaur, they just kick ass) could probably beat it in a fight as they are better for hunting large prey. It really pained me to say this as it is my 2nd favorite dinosaur behind giga.
My 2nd favorite dinosaur behind Giganotosaurus but spino is still overrated (it really pains me to say this because I love this guy). But if anything, T. rex, giganotosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus are better for hunting large dinosaurs. Regardless of 8 year olds that just watched monsters resurrected might tell you, spino is not an apex predator. Carcharodontosaurus was better adapted for hunting large dinosaurs.
Overrated dinosaur that can “one shot a T. rex with its massive claws” no it can’t dude, it’s just like saying a bear could one shot a rhino because it has bigger claws
It may had been the biggest carnivorous dinosaur, but it was hardly the toughest.
