Top Ten Most Stereotyped and Misunderstood Animals

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Coyotes

Unfairly demonized when the fact is that they're not much different from that of wolves or foxes. I personally blame the irresponsible people who let their kids or pets enter an unsafe place more than anything else. If it weren't for coyotes, then most farmers would have a pest problem with rodents.

22 Pigs
23 Dolphins
24 Jackals Jackals The jackal is a small omnivorous mammal of the genus Canis, which also includes the wolf and dog. While the word "jackal" has historically been used for many small canids, in modern use it most commonly refers to three species: the closely related black-backed jackal and side-striped jackal of sub-Saharan more.

Mistaken as cowardly scavengers when they actually are brave when hunting their prey or feeding on a carcass.

They can rip an animal to shreds! Also they will attack prey much larger than them! Not so cowardly now huh! - MichaelAftonUTTP

There’s something about jackals: they have that mischievous and adventurous look to them, but yet I can’t take them seriously when looking at them! - Miauzer

25 Leopards Leopards 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.
26 White Tiger White Tiger
27 Bee Bee

They’re creepy. - Miauzer

28 Hawk Hawk Hawks are a group of medium-sized diurnal birds of prey of the family Accipitridae which are widely distributed and varying greatly in size.

Hawks are such awesome birds. I cannot believe that The Lion Guard's second season made one a villain. (Mpishi) I swear, The Lion King franchise is starting to get worse and worse with how it portrays wildlife.

29 Cobra
30 Skink

They seem to be harmless lizards, so why would you see them as "evil"? Also, they're not skunks, so don't let the word fool you.

31 Honey Badger

They seem to be getting a positive or heroic portrayal in fiction nowadays thanks to that god awful abomination of a fictional character in the form of Bunga from Disney's The Lion Guard (A character I hate so much), yet in reality, honey badgers are ferocious, fearless, attack other animals for no reason and may have been referred to as "the meanest animal in the world". While I have no dislike of the animal itself, you seriously don't want to mess with them.
