Top Ten Best Animals

The Top Ten

1 Dog Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.

I have loved dogs since I was two years old, literally. I have one, and she is just the sweetest! They are definitely my favorite of all animals, but here is my top ten list:
1. Dog
2. Cat (SO independent, plus the kittens are so cute! )
3. Polar Bear (I love their fur, and I love the way the females are such great moms)
4. Seal (So playful! )
5. Jaguar (I saw a baby jaguar at the zoo, and now I am hooked! )
6. Elephant (The herds of elephants are so tightly knitted together, it makes my hurt want to burst how they look out for each other. )
7. Hummingbird (We get a ton of these at my house in the summer, and once one actually sat ON MY HAND! It was so cute and tiny! )
8. Lion (Majestic, fierce, proud. )
9. Bunny (Oh my word, these are just so cute! )
10. Lamb (I love their wooly, curly fur, and they are just so amazingly, irresistibly cute! )

I believe dogs are strong animals, not only physically, but mentally. I recently adopted a dog who came from an absolutely horrible past. We were looking into getting her DNA tested to see what breeds she is a mix of, but we are guessing German Shepherd Terrier Mix. Her story is rough, but she's started to turn things around, I must warn whoever reads this, but her past is heartbreaking. She was born on February 3, 2010, and she is currently 6 years old, and her name is Tori. The poor girl started out when she first got adopted as a young adult (supposedly a puppy) and lived outside ONLY, in a pen, with another dog. She was never allowed inside and the only thing in the fenced-in area, was another dog, and a doghouse, with some food/water. Unfortunately, we don't know the whole story, but she was rescued and adopted again. She was adopted by a family in December of 2014, but she got away the very same day they adopted her. They never put up any signs looking for her, and she was on ...more

I've had multiple dogs throughout my life. The one I own right now is a Border Collie puppy mix named Bowie. She is the sweetest thing ever. My favorite dog top ten list goes like this:

1. Border Collie (I've owned 3, plus my uncle owns one. Truly amazing dogs, although they require lots of exercise. All of mine were amazing and great with my baby cousins and sister. Best breed in my opinion, they are so underrated! )
2. German Shepherd (Just one of those dogs that really bonds with you and would die protecting you. They're so sweet and are amazing.)
3. Husky (Loyal, beautiful working dogs.)
4. Labrador (Hands down, BEST family dog. Great with kids and babies.)
5. Pit Bull (Maybe the most misunderstood dog breed. They take lots of obedience training but are great with kids, elderly, and just about anyone! )
6. Australian Cattle Dog (Energetic, playful pets. Very loyal and obedient, and LOVE swimming, hiking, e.t.c. My grandma has one named Kas and it is the ...more - BoyMcFacto

Pugs, paddles, any type of dog I like it. Dogs are so cute they are the best type of pet ever I have loved dogs since I was 6 and now until 11 years old thanks God for the most amazing thing you ever gave to me. :D

2 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.

Cats are awesome! I never used to be interested in them until I read Warrior Cats. They are awesome!

Agreed, except I already loved cats. Warriors just strengthened my love for cats

I think most of the time people misjudge cats. They are very smart animals, and independent. A lot of people think you can't train cats, but my cat is trained to sit, lie down, roll over, open doors, play fetch, and much, much more! One nice things about cats, but can also lead to some people disliking cats is the fact that some take a while to warm up to people, the good thing is once they get to know you they can be your best friend.

~lifetime cat owner

Cats are the best pets. I like dogs, but I hear they really want attention. I don't have any dogs - just cats, but people tell me it's really hard to go on vacation without them. Also, cats are trained how to use the bathroom, witch is really smart. My kitten can only play fetch. - Pebblepaw

Just because they can't do tricks doesn'mean they're boring! (They make real good company! )

Dogs will probably stay at number 1, but I've always been more of a cat preson.

3 Dolphin Dolphin Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic.

Dolphins are great. No kidding. They're cute and do amazing tricks. No dogs going to jump 10 ft high. So smart too. Also very very very friendly.

Allow me to tell you what I know about dolphins. Dolphins use echolocation to find food. It comes from the melon the ear is included. Dolphins are intelligent animals and dolphins are known to save people from shark attacks. Dolphins attack by ramming like a bull. Dolphins eat about 45 pounds of food a day. So if you keep a dolphin at an dolphinarim make sure you feed them that much. Baby dolphins are called calfs. Dolphins don't just live in the ocean some live in rivers like river dolphins. So if you like dolphins you should work at a dolphinarim! I like DOLPHINS too!

Dolphins are so nice you can touch them and they wont hurt you. Have you herd a dolphin killing a human

I think I heard of a dolphin drowning someone by mistake because it thought they where playing, and the person could breath under water as long as them. - Pebblepaw

They are so intelligent and amazing. I adore dolphins. They are like the saviors of the ocean and so kind! - NightJinx

4 Tiger Tiger The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.

It's the best animal in the world

They can leap over their fence if they're in the zoo, and they can hurt you easily, so they're kind of dangerous, but still cool. - Vic21102

Love Them, Pure Greatness - copkiller

I like tigers cause I am born in the year of the tiger and tigers are the friendliest big cats

When they've killed thousands of villagers/poachers for intruding, I wouldn't say "friendliest big cats" - Brobusky

The king of the jungle, it must be number 1

5 Wolf Wolf Often in/from packs, Wolves are carnivorous Canines that come in various colours and breeds, and have evolved to Dogs. Some breeds of Wolves are, like Dogs, domesticated, to become a Working Dog.

It is a simple fact that wolves are more intelligent than dogs. Wolves are in packs. The alpha wolves are the leaders and their goal is simple. Keep them alive. The betas train the delta wolves into beta wolves and the omega wolf normally stays as omega and eats last. The wolves find the prey's weakness and herd them to it. Then when they get a chance to strike, they finish it off. Most people think wolves are dumb because they howl at the moon.
But actually this is like preying. The wolves howl at the moon to prey. That is not known for sure but I have found that theory about why wolves howling at the moon. They take care of each other and staying tough in the hardest conditions of weather. They all work as a team to survive. It is so sad when the mother has pups she dies. Wolves are the best and one hundred percent loyal (WAY WAY loyaler than dogs and more intelligent and more beautiful) Best animal ever

Actually, wolves do not have any other ranks beside the alpha. The rest are all made up for role plays and such. - CaitlinComet

The wolf is the ultimate animal. It is a predator that runs through the forests of the world howling at the full moon illuminating the night sky. The wolf is works with the pack to take down prey much larger than itself. Wolves form close family bonds and often take their Mates for life. The wolf establishes a extremely complicated pack hierarchy and occasionly some wolves leave the pack and become solitary lone wolves. Today the ancestors of the wolf are mans best friend and his constant companion, we see the wolf in various aspects of our media which often abounds with stories of werewolves. The wolf has long been a source of wonder, fear and awe for mankind and it is now our duty as stewards of the world to protect the wolf before this most powerful and fascinating creature vanishes from the world humans have for so long ravaged. - maverick88

They are so majestic. They are like the lions of North America, as some even have manes! They are the symbol of the wild, and they just are beautiful! Like dogs, but bigger and more powerful. - Splashstorm

AWESOME - toptendudes

6 Penguin Penguin

NUMBER 7!? This is the best animal in existence that is real. I can understand monkeys being popular, they are my third favorite. Penguins don't want to fly because flying is for 5-year old Justin Bieber fans. Flying is for ducks, and if you've seen Daffy Duck, you can understand why that is an insult to flying. Penguins can swim, and that is way better than any other bird that flies besides hawks. Blue Jays fly, but their food is on the ground. Penguins swim, and they eat fish. VOTE PENGUINS!

The crappy monkey is at the top? Who made this list? Monkeys are stupid poop flinging apes! Who did this? I like dogs, but penguins are superior for their cuteness, but also awesomeness!

Yeah but technically humans are in the same category as monkeys so... - Brobusky

Penguins are great man! Who doesn't love penguins?! There such nice animals, in fact, they can even talk! Not really... But they are smart and intelligent, but don't get too near if not they will slap you! Seriously, vote for penguins! Like I did!

Penguin are the most anazing animal ever
Just picture them waddling

7 Horse Horse The horse is one of two extant subspecies of Equus ferus. It is an odd-toed ungulate mammal belonging to the taxonomic family Equidae, and can be tamed, bred, and trained, as a mount.

Once the horse was used as animal of war an it was considered a need for all men to know how to care for and ride a horse. Now horses our just used for prancing around with little girls wearing fancy outfits and jumping over two foot tall fences. I would give anything to return to the days when there were no cars and the horse was not only a means of entertainment and travel but a sign of royalty and essential aspect of warfare. - maverick88

Horses are just beautiful animals, fun to ride watch and care for if your in the right mindset you will know horses are the ultimate best! I love my little horse and If you don't like horses get outside and ride one they are the best of all animals! (I still love the elephants though! ) end of line period done they rock done zip. Vote for horses! ¡

Among ALL of the animals, horses are the ONLY animal that shares a relationship such as exists between horse and human. They enter into a partnership with us in which they yield control to us AND carry the physical burden of the relationship! And this they do, WILLINGLY! There is a saying, There is nothing better for the inside of a man, than the outside of a horse. Completely true! Time spent with a horse will benefit and aid in mental healing FAR better than that of ANY Psychiatrist! Also, horses are FIRMLY woven into the fabric of this country! If not for horses, we would not have progressed as we did in the U.S.!

Hoerses are the best

8 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.

9?! 9?! Lions deserve to be number 1. By far the most iconic big cat and one of the most iconic animals in the world. Lions are gifted hunters as they can hunt and kill animals such as buffalo which is 3 times their weight. Sharp claws dagger like teeth and super senses makes this big cat the King of the animal kingdom

Once I was at the zoo and I saw the 2 lions having sex... I was 6 and my mom said that they were giving piggy-back rides... Scared for life when I found out what it REALLY was.

It's true male lions are actually very cruel, even to baby Lions, but heck dolphins on this list are known to have sex with each other that means they can't be on the list?

Lions is handsome, powerful and scare.

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

Monkeys are amazing. I was at this zoo when a monkey threw his turd at the glass

Monkey's are by far the best animal on the planet. Dogs are second but monkeys are still the best. I even have a pet monkey that we rescued and now we are monkey foster parents.

I have to disagree crap slinging apes aren't exactly better than say dogs or wolves - Brobusky

I vote for monkeys because I love monkeys they are my favorite animal in the world. That is why I vote for monkeys.

Nice animal

10 Panda Panda

Well pandas bring peace to the world... They are black, they are white, they are Asian and they are chubby

Pandas are very cute. You should vote for pandas. HOORAY FOR PANDAS!

I love love love panda's they are the cutest animal EVER and there kinda like a Japanese animal, I love Japan. I want to go to Japan and actually touch a panda. So vote they are awesome so intelligent and cute they have thumbs to and so fluffy (sometimes)

They're so cute I can't even
I want to give them a � - hug

The Contenders

11 Elephant Elephant Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Two species are traditionally recognized, the African elephant and the Asian elephant, although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species.

Seriously, elephants are amazing! Their trunks are amazing! The elephant's trunk contains over 40,000 muscles, divided into as many as 150,000 individual units! Compare that to the human body, which contains a paltry 639 muscles, and you start to get an idea how intricate the appendage is. Their resourcefulness is also surprising. I mean, using their ears as fans, eating rocks to help digest, and using their trunks to bath themselves in dirt or water; it's incredible! But my favorite thing about them is their love of their young. Their fierce protection and devotion to them, not to mention the babies are adorable. AND, a women is the alpha of the group! WAY TO GO WOMEN ELEPHANTS!

I can't believe elephants did not make top ten. Despite the fact that elephants are most widely used animals in corporate advertising. The lions, panda, penguin don't belong around humans as much as dogs, cats and elephants do. If dogs, cats made it then elephant should do. On that note, Koala bear, bunny rabbit are cute and cool. - TheStand

They are on the top ten. (by the way Koalas are vicious predators! ) - Brobusky

I love elephants- they're my favorite animal. You gotta love em! They can kill lions by just stabbing them with tusks.

I love elephants,they are my favorite animal tied with dogs☺☺.Elephants are so friendly towards another😊😊.

12 Fox Fox Foxes are small to medium sized animals and belong to the Canidae family along with other animals such as jackals, wolves, and domestic dogs. There are 37 species of fox but only 12 are considered true Vulpes. A foxes main prey are birds, fish, berries, insects, and rabbits. Some of the best known species ...read more.

I LOVE FOXES! They are cute, sneaky, they have beautiful coats and they are my favourite animal! VOTE FOR FOXES!

Foxes are awesome! They are cute and funny both, and not very dangerous! They have high pitched barks that can be a little weird at first, but cool. Lastly, they have nice deep red fur (unless you are talking about the rare black fox) that is an awesome sight to see.

Foxes have actually sneaked into people's houses and for example kidnapped a baby. The poor, innocent baby dies. If only foxes didn't have to resort to deeds like that. They should be put in wildlife reserves, where they don't have to scrounge for litter to eat. Why do people hate them for killing babies! It is our own fault (mankind's) for not protecting them. Go foxes. (! )

13 Eagle Eagle Eagle is a common name for many large birds of prey of the family Accipitridae; it belongs to several groups of genera that are not necessarily closely related to each other. Eagles are also one of America's national symbols.

Eagles are majestic creatures. I like to skim the sky for bald eagles

My top 3 types of eagles:

1. Bald Eagle

2. Golden Eagle

3. Tawny eagle

Vote eagle!

I pretty much think the same except Wedge Tailed Eagles are my no. 1 eagle. - FrozenHatingPokefan

Eagle are fast and able to go higher than other birds, for example the Bold eagle.

Why is it number 12?!?! Eagles are majestic, beautiful, iconic birds of prey that deserve the best of respect! I am a lifelong birder, and I would know! Number 12. Seriously.

Bald Eagles are strong; like America! - SilverstreamSucks

14 Snake Snake Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears. About 600 species are venomous, some of which can be fatal to humans if no medical help is sought.

I have snake for a pet he is awesome for the rest of my life I will never not have a snake life is boring with out them I have a ball python (just because it is a python does not make him dangerous he is 3 feet long and an inch thick also why would he want to eat me I am always the person who feed him so he trusts me I have proof of this to one time my friend was over he picked him up and my snake was striking at air and as soon as I picked him up he stopped and completely calmed down also snakes don't swell up when they are testing if they can eat things I went from feeding g my snake medium size mice to big rats and he did not swell up he just looked at it and thought that he could eat it so he did this proves your story wrong and proves that people will hate things if they do not understand them written by A Gillies

They look pretty awesome but have no concept of loyalty. Did you hear that story about a man who owned a boa constrictor and raised him since he hatched out from an egg, but one day the snake swelled up really big and laid down next to the man. this happened for a few days, then the worried, concerned man phoned up the vets to see what was wrong. the vet said the snake was swelling up to stretch it's stomach to get ready to eat the man. It was too late by then though, by the time the man was alerted, he was gone. Snakes: ARE NOT TO BE KEPT AS PETS.

Snakes are some the oldest animals on earth today. They are ancient and mankind as always been fascinated and terrified of them. The oldest known religion was Python worship over 70,000 years ago. In ancient times kings were often known as Dragon kings or Serpent kings. Today snakes are still a source of fear for many, but for some they are much more. Many people keep snakes as pets and are learning that the snake is not something to fear but to respect. - maverick88

No way. Snakes and lizards need to be at the top of the list.
So many people think they are gross they really are not at all. I have a pet bearded dragon and she is sooo cute.

15 Polar Bear Polar Bear The polar bear is a carnivorous bear whose native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle, encompassing the Arctic Ocean, its surrounding seas and surrounding land masses.

The best animal. King of the Arctic and LARGEST LAND CARNIVORE. Yet adorable, these epic beasts are not to be messed with. GO POLAR BEARS

When a Polar bear hunts a seal, most people say Noo escape seal! Not me. I look at that plump fat seal living in luxury and then I look at the scrawny and starving polar bear just desperate to get food and I was like OH YEAH LETS GO POLAR BEAR! And did you know only 2% of polar bear hunts are successful? I find it ridiculous how no one cries for the plant being eaten by the elephant and EVERYONE cries when the lion kills the elephant. PLANTS ARE LIVING THINGS TOO!

They look very cute. Even though they are dangerous they look very cuddly and my favorite zoo animal

I got into bears because of the Seeker books I have loved them ever since

16 Snow Leopard Snow Leopard The snow leopard is a large cat native to the mountain ranges of Central and South Asia. The name "Snow Leopard" is due to its white fur, and the black spots dotted over it.

It is sad that one day, snow leopards will be extinct. Generations to come will think of the leopard as we think about dinosaurs. All those animal protectors are too late. Boo mankind. :(

They are so cute! The fur is really nice as well. They are going to die though.

Hey, at least we're trying! You are a human being, maybe you should help us Animal Protectors, if you care about these animals so much, instead of just judging us and what we do? I bet you aren't a part of the Hardworking groups of people who do their best to make sure Snow Leopards and other animals do not become extinct. We are trying, that's what matters. You should too.

17 Rabbit Rabbit Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.

Why is rabbit not at the top of this. Rabbits are the cutest animals ever. An argument can be made that some dogs are cutter than rabbits, but some species of dogs (AKA the smaller ones) are loud, unfriendly and annoying. All Rabbits love humans. They love being petted and love to cuddle with anyone or anything they meet. They come up to you when you enter the room and stand on they're hind legs like little babies so that you can pick them up. They move to play games and to run around and explore where they live. One time I found my rabbit in my little brothers room cuddling among his stuffed animals. It was adorable.

Rabbits are cute and spunky; My pet bunny saw a carrot onto of a chair and she jumped from pillow to pillow to get there. The carrot was supposed to be in a cake.

Why on earth is rabbits number 18? They are by far the gentlest and cutest animals of all time. They also match with my personality as they are quite shy animals and I'm a rather shy person. Rabbits all the way!

So rabbit! They are so cute I agree it is 17 place? what was that for they are sweet cute amazing animals I can't belive dogs are 1st yes, they jump poop everywhere bark while you sleep and always lick you they lick your s=dishes you always have to wash and man I always say... RABBITS SHOULD RULE THE WORLD dogs are just a Big nono for me! who agrees?

18 Cheetah Cheetah The cheetah, also known as the hunting leopard, is a big cat that occurs mainly in eastern and southern Africa and a few parts of Iran. The cheetah is the fastest land animal, able to run up to 75 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds

Best ever! They're so fast and don't cheat with peed like those peregrine falcons. All the falcons do is fall! They don't work as hard as cheetahs.

I love cheetahs. They're super fast but not as dangerous as other big cars. Cheetahs are quite majestic to see as well. They would have made great pets if not for the genetic weakness of the species that leads to various problems.

Tigers do not suck! That is why they are higher than cheetahs. No, I did vote FOR BOTH, but I'm just saying, quit yapping fake facts. Maybe I won't vote for cheetahs anymore that's what you get for lying.

A beautiful animal that is additionally the fastest land mammal and the oldest member of the cat family

It has a long neck and a long tongue which awesome. How did it not even get number in the top 20. It is so amazing it can kill a lion with one kick.

A giraffe is one of the cutest animals I've seen. Its very deadly and can take out a wolf or kill a human easily. - Teddyursua

20 Killer Whale Killer Whale The killer whale or orca is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family, of which it is the largest member.

Brains and power come together with communication they are so clever they make new ways of doing things and then teach it to the next generation just like humans do vote killer whale!

I'd prefer to call them orca's since they aren't technically whales and this name gives them a somewhat bad rep. They are the largest dolphins, very intelligent, and very social. They are also very dangerous and it is now illegal for trainers to get in the water with their orcas for the trainers safety. I don't see why this isn't included under 'Dolphin' tough...

I love these mammals! I saw them in ocean parks on stages all the time. I never miss the tail-splashes during the show! That means they are intelligent and adaptable. These mammals are just too awesome for me to even think of anything. They're my favorite animals forever!

They can take on a Great White Shark

21 Shark Shark Sharks are a group of fish characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Sharks have been around before the earth's first dinosaurs and even the earth's first trees.

I like a lot of animals, since generally I like nature as a whole (except parasites, for sure), including several animals higher on this list (I don't get why pets feature so highly on here, mind), but I think I will vote for the shark. For one, sharks are seen in an unfairly bad way, and many people seem to fear them (even I feel a little uneasy when I see a video of one, if only slightly). Sharks are fascinating creatures that have been on the Earth for longer than a lot of other animals on this list, and are animals that we still have more to find out about them. Other things I will mention is how they are hunted quite a bit, which shouldn't even happen at all (though the same could be said for other animals on this list), and that one true story, in which I can't unfortunately remember many of the details, where a woman pulled a hook out of a shark's mouth and now it has formed a bond with her. Sharks are better than most people give them credit for.

To whoever likes shark fin soup and wants to kill sharks for it, you really need to be arrested for animal cruelty (well only if you kill the Sharks). And megalodon was one of the biggest and deadliest creatures alive.

THE SHARK IS THE BEST ANIMAL EVER

25 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.

Bears are one of the strongest, magnificent and powerful animals of nature. People keep saying that tigers and lions are the strongest predators. But close to a bear, tigers and lions are just little kittens. Practically nothing is able to defeat the fury of a mother bear protecting her cubs. At the same time bears are very dangerous, bears are also so cute, cuddly, playful, and gluttons, that only make me wish I give them a big hug. Best animal ever and sadly underestimated. - Palmeiras

The bear is the ultimate survivor. It is very tough and strong, it can live in the harshest conditions, it can swim, it can climb trees, it can eat both meat and plants and it could beat the crap out of almost every animal on this list!

I love bears so much! I actually earned the nickname Bear girl from my friends because I act like a bear a lot, with my rather short temper, love for swimming and craving for honey fish meat berries etc.

Leaving Bear out of the top 5 animals is like leaving Lebron James out of the top 5 NBA players of all time. Come on people!

NUMBER 28? Personally, I think leopards are the best animals alive. They are graceful but strong, and they are related to tigers, which happens to be NUMBER 3 on this list! Leopards can AMBUSH their prey by leaping onto a tree and blend in. When prey comes by, they leap at them and they get dinner.
Also, they can SWIM. I don't know any other big cats that actually enjoy swimming! So, there's my opinion. VOTE FOR LEOPARDS!

Love leopards they r so cute it should not be number 29 it should be MUCH higher

29 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.

Unbelievably cute. No, seriously, cuter than anything else you can possibly imagine. How come a snake ranks higher that a koala?

Koala's are just so cute in pictures. I went to Australia, but never did see one. I hope if I go again I'll get to see the critter. This is all around cutest munchkin ever!

Koalas are very cute, but when I grow up I would like to save koalas because they are endangered.

They are the best!

31 Guinea Pig Guinea Pig 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.

Pigs in general are adorable, so Guinea pigs are right up my alley! They are so cute and it's so funny the way they burrow under stuff. One time, we put a blanket on top of mine and it couldn't find it's way out. But finally, she poked her little nose out and squealed with joy. Guinea pigs are so charming, got Guinea pigs!

Guinea pigs are so cute. I had 2 Guinea pigs (they were sisters) and when they younger one got sick, the older one took care of her. It was so sweet. Vote 4 Guinea pigs!

Guinea pigs are the cutest animals ever!

Adorable - kaisietoo

32 Parrot Parrot Parrots, also known as psittacines, are birds of the roughly 393 species in 92 genera that make up the order Psittaciformes, found in most tropical and subtropical regions.

Parrots are majestic creatures, and should be at the top of this list, although they are usually defined as noisy, messy, annoying and aggressive, not all parrots are like this, because I met this really friendly umbrella cockatoo named oat meal who could say hello and do a flip, she also was very sweet and wouldn't bite

They are beautiful, colorful animals. They make great pets. People dismiss all parrots as being noisy, messy, annoying, agressive, and more. This is not true. You have to spend time with them. They are actually sweet, fun, comical companions. Also, some of them talk! How cool is that? - MusicGirl

Don't they sometimes get annoying? Or can you train them to speak at certain times?

It is the most adorable animal ever

Uh,...well, they kinda keep you up all night (since they're nocturnal) and they can't cuddle with you like dogs, but at least they're better than cats!

Have you ever read the Humphrey series? Even though I'm a dog lover all the way, whenever I read those books, a little part of me sighs...

African elephants are larger than the Asian ones. But their abilities are not very different. Their trunks are very versatile. - LightningBlade

38 Arctic Fox Arctic Fox The Arctic fox, also known as the white fox, polar fox, or snow fox, is a small fox native to the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere and common throughout the Arctic tundra biome.

I've always admired creatures that can camouflage, and foxes are my favorite animal, so put the 2 together and I'm going' crazy! Gotta love these cute, sneaky dog-like creatures!

SO CUTE arctic foxes are adorable and they are smart because they can kill a bison and catch a rabbit

They are really cute they are kind of like arctic wolfs but smaller and a little cuter

I'm actually getting one! I also have 50 acres of farmland so yeah! - Swiftdawn

39 Deer Deer Deer are the ruminant mammals forming the family Cervidae. The two main groups are the Cervinae, including the muntjac, the fallow deer and the chital, and the Capreolinae, including the elk, reindeer, the Western roe deer, and the Eurasian elk.

Oh, come off it. You like deer and we all know it. Besides, what do you like about moose?

I like deer better... They are so cute, graceful and intelligent!

Yeah if you like deer. Why not moose? They are much cooler

Deer are just so “elegant” to me. They look graceful. I have no idea why. They seem like innocent animals, and I love them.

I want one as a pet

COOL COOL,COOL !I JUST WANT TO SEE One IN MY REAL Life!

41 Octopus Octopus The octopus is a cephalopod mollusc of the order Octopoda. It has two eyes and four pairs of arms and, like other cephalopods, it is bilaterally symmetric. It has a beak, with its mouth at the center point of the arms.

For thousands of years, no one paid much attention to the octopus. It was kind of weird looking, it lived underwater, and until the invention of deep fryers, it wasn't especially tasty. Also, octopuses didn't really attack humans, so they never attracted the same level of attention as sharks or tigers or tiger sharks did. - TeamRocket747

I love sea life, and octopus, stingrays, starfish, and hammerhead sharks and the cutest things I have every seen, and let's not forget about the cuteness of jellyfish.

Octopus are the most intelligent invertebrates. Amazing camoflauging ability. Can change the texture of their skin not to mention the colour. They also look very interesting.

Octopuses (not octopi) are the best animal on Earth!

42 Great White Shark Great White Shark The great white shark, also known as the great white, white pointer, white shark, or white death, is a species of large lamniform shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans.

Someone already made one for shark! Why the heck did you make this? All Great White Sharks do are eat people and cute seals. (VOTE SEALS! )

I love great white sharks they are the biggest so people thought then...megaladon came along in 2013 I like great white the best and they are not the same as other sharks do not vote seals they are to kind! Imma tom boy by the way so LOL I LOVE GREAT WHITE SHARKS!

I like sharks because they are dangerous

Dear person who said VOTE SEALS!, please get a life. They call me sharkie for a reason... So get ready to be bitten... And they eat seals (and you obnoxious seal fan) for reasons you know.
1. Ever played hungry shark? The sharks need to eat to survive. Same irl.
2. They mistake humans for seals, and only attack if you have blood. Leave us alone and you'll be fine. - astroshark

It also had a tremendous bite force, the strongest of any Dinosaur and living terrestrial animal. It’s bite force reached up to 12,800 pounds (roughly ...read more.

This picture of the tyrannosaurus is inaccurate, it should have feathers

They are ass cracks

The t-Rex is so cool I love them they r my favourite type of dinasour I'm so sad that they r extinct but I'm also happy because if they weren't extinct they would KILL US ALL!

Definitely T rex!

44 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.

They don't make bacon! They are bacon! Think of that smart, cute, happy, adorable piggy with her/his chubby little cheeks... Then think of a gun being put to its face. Then think of your breakfast tomorrow.
Oh, yeah, and did you know pigs are as intelligent as dogs, which is pretty intelligent if you ask me. They are not a dumb animal for only a source of food. If you have a dog, please thumbs up

They're extremely smart, and mother pigs are known to sing to their young. Even rumored to be as smart as a human toddler, and easier to train than dogs. It's a shame everyone here think they're only alive to be your next meal. They're so much more than that. - keycha1n

I'd never eat pig meat, anyone who eats pig meat, I hate those people - PeeledBanana

Pigs r by far the best. They r smart, cute, happy, and make bacon! Laugh out loud! People think there dumb animals that sit in the mud, but there not! They r actually clean animals that need mud to stay cool.
Besides they make yummy food!

Pigs! Adore them! And NOT because they make bacon, like everyone else. Because they are intelligent, adorable, and just plain awesome. They don't deserve to be eaten by ungrateful humans. - Marveli

45 Humpback Whale Humpback Whale The humpback whale is a species of baleen whale. One of the larger rorqual species, adults range in length from 12–16 m and weigh about 36,000 kg.

They are the largest animal on earth, they can do a lots of flips in the air, and they can sing in a high patched sonde, too.

No blue whale is

I think whales are the best! They are HUGE, and are so unique! They can do these awesome flips, and can make super loud noises! Did you know their noises can carry for miles?! I think Humpback Whales are the absolute BEST, because they are so amazing and they are cute and majestic! 🐳

46 Hyena Hyena Hyenas or hyaenas are any feliform carnivoran mammals of the family Hyaenidae /haɪˈɛnᵻdiː/. With only four extant species, it is the fifth-smallest biological family in the Carnivora, and one of the smallest in the class Mammalia.

Hyaenas/Hyenas are symbolic with being evil scavengers. Truly underrated animals that provide a wonderful sight when in the wild. As for disembowelment, every canine that exists (Wolves, Dogs, etc.) prefers to take down large prey by disembowelment, only cats go for the neck.

How are sloths above hyenas. You like an animal that does nothing more than a skilled hunter that has many techniques and has equal, if not higher intelligent then what we evolved from.

They're underrated and Underappreciated, enough said.

I Feel like if I were an animal I would be a Hyena

According to mythology the lynx has supernatural eyesight and suppossedly has the power of clairvoyance

48 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.

Snowy owls are such amazing creatures. They are beautiful, majestic and amazing hunters and fighters. BOTH males and females defend their young. Their young is on the ground, and basically calling out for someone to eat them. Do the females just sit around while the males fight? No. They fight too, unlike MANY animals. The two even fight against wolves. Imagine that. You are a snowy owl. This large wolf comes up to you and your nest. It is AT LEAST three times larger than yourself, but you still fight with your mate.

And they are astounding hunters. They have great eyesight. Why? Well, if there's a tiny white rodent running in white snow and you are above them in the air, do you think you could see it? Probably not. But snowy owls can. They also swoop down at their prey, silently and deadly.

Snowy owls are such amazing and beautiful creatures and they truly deserve to be #1.

Watch Legend Of the Guardians: The Owls Of Ga'Hoole.

I love them owls. The fan base on the top tens for owls makes them deserve higher. Go owls & Harry Potter

Owls are my favourites. They're also my spirit animal. They are hard working, independent, beautiful and mysterious. They're the best!

I love whales! This and chinchilla should be number 1

I MY GOSH WHALES ARE AWESOME 50 REALLY;(

I've seen a whale! She goes to my school. Her name is Ella the Whale - ZakysReptiles01

I love whales! I've loved them since I read moby dick. I saw two swimming in the ocean while I was on the beach they were surprisingly near. those whales were humpback whales. I personally like all whales but I like humpback whales and sperm whales best.

50 Otter Otter Otters are carnivorous mammals in the subfamily Lutrinae. The 13 extant otter species are all semiaquatic, aquatic or marine, with diets based on fish and invertebrates.

Otters are the best! I went to the zoo I saw an otter and my little cousin matt, saw the otters and actually jumped into their cage and the otters just swam up to him and cuddled at first I was terrified but then I realised that otters aren't harmful at all!

They are so adorable! Like mini seals! (Vote 4 them too! ) They are so playful. I went to the zoo a little while ago, and it broke my heart to leave. He was, like, speaking to me. He pressed his face against the glass and was squeaking. Then he pressed the ball against the glass too...i could go on 4eva, but u get the point right? (VOTE 4 OTTERS! )

Otters are literally the best animals in world at a tie with red pandas and I can't believe they aren't farther up on the list. Like really! LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE!

Otters are amazing creatures #so cute
