Top Ten Best Animals

The Top Ten Best Animals

1 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 have had two dogs in my life:
A jack russell (deceased)
A beagle (very well alive)

I got my beagle not even a year ago, and he is the sweetest little thing! At first he wasn't affectionate and a bit of a brat. Now he's cuddling up with you every time you take a seat. He was an escape artist, but now he loves his home.

My jack russell I had was when I was a baby. It was his duty to protect me (in his head). every time my parents were getting outta the car to empty the boot, he would sit on me incase someone tried to kidnap me. He was an escape artist, but would rather protect me then run away

Dogs are the most loyal little things.

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

2 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 colors and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated. They are highly intelligent and good at problem solving.

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! )

They can do tricks, if you teach them. It's harder than training dogs, but it's doable. - Firemist

Cats are sadly misunderstood. Many people think that they are unkind. This is false, they just need to warm up to people, and are kind and loyal to those they trust. People also say cats cannot do tricks. Again, false. Cats can do tricks, as long as they are properly trained. My own cat knows many tricks himself! And cats do not ignore you all day. Only cats that are mistreated do that. My other kitty loves to curl up on my lap while I use the computer! And to all those people saying cats can't save lives, you are incorrect. There have been many stories about cats saving the lives of their owners! In fact, one kitty ran into a burning building multiple times to save her kittens! That is pure loyalty there! Also, studies have shown that cat people, while they are typically introverts, tend to be more intelligent! All in all, while both cats and dogs are great pets, cats come on top for me.

3 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

I heard the wolfs are least concern for endangered. First lets save LEMURS then if they get endangered save the wolfs - lemur

Wolves are my spirit animal and absolutely breathtaking to look at. They are strong, elusive, sneaky, majestic, protective, intelligent, and beautiful. Their fur, their eyes, their ears! Just artistic! Wolves are the ultimate hunters. Wolves are the best! Most people think wolves are dumb because they howl at the moon.
However, they do this for preying. Wolves howl at the moon for prey. They take care of each other and stay tough even in the hardest conditions of weather. They all work as a team to survive in their habitat. Wolves are one hundred percent loyal, beautiful, and intelligent. Best animal! My list of best animals:
1. Wolf
2. Arctic Fox
3. Arctic Wolf
4. Fox
5. Snow Leopard
6. Cat
7. Dog
8. Lion
9. Cougar
10. Amur Leopard
-Madison - PastelTheGamer

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

4 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.

I love all animals but tigers are my favorite, they are beautiful, cute, powerful and it's such a shame to know that there are more tigers in captivity than in the wild, tigers are WILD animals. They should be running around in the jungle, not stuck in a cage and I don't even want to mention the awful treatment tigers face in circuses, roadside zoos, and exotic fur farms. Also, this roar is rare, please PROTECT it!
SAVE THE TIGERS!

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

Tigers are so much cooler, stronger and better than lions. Who gave lions the title " King of the Jungle " when they don't even live in the jungle and when tigers exist.

Tigers are beautiful and powerful animals and they deserve respect. It's a shame that there are people that use them like tools for their own gain.

5 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.

They are incredible. The way they communicate with each other is superb.

Sometimes they are helpful and all the time they are adorable.

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!

6 Penguin Penguins are a group of aquatic, flightless birds. They live almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere, with only one species, the Galapagos penguin, found north of the equator.

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!

I think penguin should be first because they are VERY VERY FAT AND CUTE

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

In the movie series ice age the whole movie they just complain. In one of them they just complain about the continents moving but don't do nothing about it. But in happy feet, the whole city is in a hole, but they don't just sit around complaining, they get the whole city out of the hole. That is why penguins are the best animals

7 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.

This Is the best animal not joking he is the king of all animals BIG TIME!

Best animal in the world, the king of the animals and ruled the kingdom of animals

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

Lions are lame! Tigers are just as iconic as lions in terms of big cats, if not more so. Most people don't even know the difference between a lion and a tiger. - paulcoop

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.

8 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.

Where to start, so the horse is the most amazing animal ever (though I think dogs come in for a close second) And I am only 11 but have been riding since I was five, and have loved horses every second. Horses have not only led us into battle before cars, but have provided great comfort and support to people, for example my brother has autism and now he doesn't ride horses but when he was younger he would therapy ride them and anyone could see he loved by the smile on his face and I think he would have wanted a horse too like me. I myself think that when someone says stuff like girls prancing around on ponies I tell them that I have ridden a 18.3 hand draft and was cantering bareback. I also say that people risk their lives to do sports on horses, and its not just riding but the happiness horses bring and I have a dog and love her but theirs really nothing in this world like horses. Then people tell me I just have fun riding them and that's all their good for, but I could spend hours ...more - ShebaDaDog

Horses are the best I have had the ability to walk into horse wild horse pens and just ride any one of them I have a really special connection with horses and I love them more than anything else on earth (besides my dad though)

I own my own and have for 6 years. I raised it since the moment it was born and I am now 15. it listens to me and no one else can ride it because I trained it to ride my way. it has a characteristic of its own and it is the most amazing animal ever

Horses are beautiful animals. I have the privilege of spending time with them once a week, and I've grown to adore them. - RiverVibeZ

9 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!

my favorite animal and they are smart and beautiful and they should be on top

They're so beautiful and smart! I love Fennec foxes, they're adorable. Also, baby foxes are just cuteness overload. - Firemist

My number 2 is fox I love them so much even more than dogs and cats

10 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.

These are just adorable! I saw a whole family at the zoo, the one in washington dc smithsonian national and they are just heart warming! These are so caring! These should be nmber 1 on this list! Dogs should take number 10! These are amazing!

They should at least be in the top 5
They are one of the most kindest animal I have ever seen
The way they care about members of their herd and the unity in them plus how sad they become when one of their members dies makes them best best animals on this planet

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!

Elephant's and dogs are my favorites and they have been for my childhood. - Cookies3210

The Contenders

11 Panda The giant panda, also known as panda bear or simply panda, is a bear native to south central China. It is easily recognized by the large, distinctive black patches around its eyes, over the ears, and across its round body.

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

I was out when I saw this on this list! It's crazy to think of these animals as not cuddly, or soft, or chubby, or even just so darn cute! I LOVE PANDAS! I definitely like the giant pandas WAY MORE than those red pandas. I have at least 10 panda cases for my phone, because I love them. Very very much.
Even though they're not my favorite animal, they're definitely in the top 3. My favorite animal is personally a manatee. They are so cute AND chubby just like a panda! I get it, you think I'm a Simpson freak ( I kinda am actually. One of the things that made me like manatees even more was an episode of the Simpsons. ((Let's not go there))
Anyways, these animals are truely wonderful, so please, vote for them!

First of all I did not vote for there old fashioned animals.I voted because whoever it was saying bad things about red panda. You are just so in love with these old fashioned animals okay. If you are reading this you are thinking that I am mean but, no one has a right to say anything bad about red panda.

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

12 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

Monkeys and all primates (exuding humans) are the best, better than any animal ever in all the multiverses ever (don't judge me or monkeys or I wiil tear you apart

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.

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

I've seen bears in the wild (only black, not grizzly) before. They're very cute and fun to watch from the car or from a distance. - RiverVibeZ

My number one is bear.
I love grizzly bears so much I wish to have a big yard and adopting some grizzly there alongside with some foxs.

I also love otters and dolphins, but polar bears are also one of my favorites and we need to save them! Get polar bears in the top ten, please!

Bears play an EXTREMELY important role in the forest forest ecosystem. They are also harmed by humans and their habitat is shrinking mostly with pandas, polar bears, and sun bears. People still hunt bears including grizzlies. Oh, and the seekers is the BEST book series ever I totally recommend it.

Love,
The bears' number one fan
PS. SAVE GLOBAL WARMING, SAVE THE POLAR BEARS
ok bye

14 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.

I can say for a fact the bald eagle is my second favorite bird, after the wandering albatross. - Stalin

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!

They are also cool animals in general. Bald eagles can also swim. Golden eagles are the second fastest animals in the world with a top speed of 180 miles per hour. - PhoenixAura81

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

I love all birds but Eagles are just fudging awesome! did I forget to mention that they're HUGE?! - SSByesHotelMariono

15 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

I love cheetahs (my second favorite) and they are incredibly fast.

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.

Na Falcons are better, and have to catch there prey from the sky! - BloodFang

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.

16 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.

Not only are they great animals in general, but they are also great pets!

Snakes are underrated! They are not slimy, any only one fifth of all snakes are venomous. Ball pythons, hog noses, king snakes, milksnakes, garders, dragon snakes, and false cobras are some of my favorites.

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.

17 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.

I got scammed once and only got a book about them. Since then, favorite animal

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.

18 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 the cutest, they only eat plants, make good fertilizer, and are really nutritious and tasty (sadly cause they so cute) Plus they are intelligent and loving (as long as not abused)

IF you do not vote for rabbit as number one big chungus will come to your house and penetrate you - TippityTopTenTheodore

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.

19 Turtle Turtles are diapsids of the order Testudines characterized by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs and acting as a shield. "Turtle" may refer to the order as a whole or to fresh-water and sea-dwelling testudines.

I have two turtles of my own and they are the sweetest things ever. Turtles are my favorite animals ever and I love them so much! They deserve to be in #1! Go turtles!

The only reason I am crazy for turtles, is because my crush kept calling me Turtle, after he originally called me cheesecake lol. I started calling him Cheesecake and he got mad and called me turtle.

If the people you are talking about that didn't vote for turtles, you are explaining 99% of the population is dumb.

Turtles are so awesome and there so cute also there so fasinateing sorry for the spelling

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

I went whale watching a few years ago with my family and we got to see a pod of these breaching almost right in front of us. It was an experience I'll never forget. - RiverVibeZ

Honestly they are dolphins and they are really cute to interact with

They are amazing and smart. Their hunting techniques are superb.

They have always been my favourite animal. I love them so much. Should be first.

21 Giraffe The giraffe is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant.

I really love giraffes. They are cute, kind, friendly and adorable. I really like the way that their necks are pretty tall, and I love the way that they bend down their necks to drink water in a savannah area. I have seen some giraffes in real life I think, but not exactly up-close.

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

I love giraffes they are like so cute and experiencing a giraffe or even having a pet giraffe would be my modern day dream and sometimes I see little flying giraffes and I try talking to them and having them as friends

22 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.

Sharks are probably the most underrated animal. I mean come on, you have a higher chance of dying from a vending machine then a shark!

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.

I love all animals but sharks are just epic! HUMAN SHOULDN'T HUNT SHARKS! - SSByesHotelMariono

23 Seal Seal, known as Pinniped, is a marine carnivorous mammals native to all continents, commonly to North America and Antarctica.

Seals are my favourite animals, they deserve to be higher in the list. Ever since I was 5 I have loved seals, they are so unique and especially cute but that’s only one of the reasons of why I love them. When I was 5 I traveled to France with my family, we travelled to the shore, it was very windy and rocky. We stood on the top of a cliff when we saw a group of seals playing around in the waves, they looked like mermaids and from then on I have loved them unconditionally.

hehe they're just so cute at times. jumping in the air and doin tricks and all. I don't understand how anyone, unless they're drunk and all could say that seals aren't the BEST OF ALL TIME AND EVER

How can you not like seals? Leopard seals especially are the best.

Seals are awesome! VOTE FOR SEALS!

24 Leopard 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 ...read more.

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

So graceful and playful... One of the most prettiest big cats - Bronceye

Best animals in the world, also the smartest big cats

25 Lynx A lynx is any of the four species within the Lynx genus of medium-sized wild cats, which includes the bobcat.

Oh my gosh, these amazing creatures are so smart and perfect for hunting, I wish I could see one in live person.

How is this lower then monkeys?

They have abnormal proportionates

Best and coolest animal, EVER. Just go have a look at them!

26 Zebra Zebras are several species of African equids united by their distinctive black and white striped coats.

They were my all-time favorite animals when I was younger and they are one of my favorites today. I even needed out about zebras to a zookeeper, who told my mom that she may have to quit her job because I know so much. - PhoenixAura81

Zebras are so exotic and lovely. I don't understand why they are so low when people everyday where zebra print handbags outfits and other things.. These awesome horse-like mammals are beautiful-everyone her should know that.

If you like horses so much then why not zebras. They are so much cooler. They are like a barcode.

I love horses and have got a horse so go zebras

27 Alligator An alligator is a crocodilian in the genus Alligator of the family Alligatoridae. The two living species are the American alligator and the Chinese alligator. Additionally, several extinct species of alligator are known from fossil remains.

Much more interesting then boring mammals, well in my opinion

Crocodiles got more attention than alligators because they're more dangerous. Alligators aren't that aggressive and are amazing animals overall.

Gators have always been my favorite animal. - thelegendaries101

Alligators have been my favourite animal since I was seven and I think they are amazing.

28 Jaguar The jaguar is a wild cat species and the only extant member of the genus Panthera native to the Americas.

I loved jaguars ever since I saw a video of a one sneaking up behind a crocodile killing it and then taking it back to its home to eat it! It was awesome. They are so strong. They should be number one!

The coolest cat in the jungle. Should be higher

I love jaguars! ❤️ Their are so cool and I really like South America and cats

I love Jaguars they r so cute and pretty! They r also so smart they should not be number 22 they should be number 4. Number 1 should be cats number 2 tigers number 3 lions and number 4 jaguars

29 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.

It's so sad how they are dying in Australia, imagine future generations not knowing what these amazing animals are because they get extinct.

GO koala! They are super cute and cuddly and they even have evil twins DROP BEARS

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!

30 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

Parrots should be at top 5, they are so cute and intelligent. I just LOVE them

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

Parrots Should Be At Number 1, They Are One Of The Best Birds - Cartoonnetworkfan1990

31 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 cute! They deserve to be higher on the list. Like, top ten! They're also smart, funny, and skilled. As much as I love otters, I also wish I could have voted for dolphins, cats, polar bears, foxes...you get the point! But otter should definitely be higher on the list, and I love them, so, you know...I had to vote for them.

cute, seen at zoo! these are adventureous and playful animals, defenetly deserve being a top 10, at least!

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! )

32 Bat Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera whose forelimbs form webbed wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight.

Bats are the best, but not only because of batman, batman sucks in comparison to a real bat. - AzureCrystals

Bats are the best batman come on in (deep voice) bats are the best they are the best

Bats Are Very Cute And Amazing

Robin is better

33 Blue Whale The blue whale is a marine mammal belonging to the baleen whales. At 30 metres in length and up to 173 tonnes in weight, it is the largest extant animal and is the heaviest known to have existed.

Whales in my opinion are the most beautiful animals on Earth, especially blue whales. They are so underrated, in my opinion. Guys, did you know... that blue whales are actually ENDANGERED? Wolves are not endangered, in fact they are Least Concern.

Blue Whales are the most Magical and chubby sea creatures that ever live

Largest animals to ever exist, and yet, they barely eat anything but krill. What is there not to like about these animals? - DrummerBoyJack

Magnificent beautiful animal

34 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.

They are the coolest animal on earth, period. I’m particularly amazed by their intelligence. How could something so smart be related to a clam?

They just so happen to be my favorite animal! They not only have blue blood, but can squirt poisonous ink out of their siphon, can quickly jet propell, and can blend in with their surroundings, doing this by changing color,texture, lighting, pattern, and more! Did you know, that the recently discovered mimic octopus(Thaumoctopus mimicus) can mimic other species by changing color, texture, shape, behavior, and size- for a defenses!

Should number 1! These guys can open bottles from the inside! And their blood is blue! BLUE!

What makes this creature so fascinating is that it has a high intelligence. It can learn through trial and error. It THINKS!

35 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.

My favorite bird... I see many common things with bears and owls... I think Owls is bird version of bears

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.

Owls are amazing! just like cats, they protect us from rodents!

Owls are amazing! They are silent flyers, beautiful creatures, and live all over the world.

36 Hamster Hamsters are rodents belonging to the subfamily Cricetinae. The subfamily contains about 25 species, classified in six or seven genera.

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...

What's with the image? - darthvadern

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

Ignoring the fact that they look like satan they're pretty cute!

They are cute animals. The perfect barn animal.

Goats are cute

Goat are gods I tell you! GODS!

38 Swordfish Swordfish, also known as broadbills in some countries, are large, highly migratory, predatory fish characterized by a long, flat bill.

Swordfish (or Marlins) are so cool! I've always wanted to see one!

Why did you post that comment? It doesn't even make any sense!

That swordfish in the picture shines so beautiful! - darthvadern

I want one as a pet

39 Duck

I love how they all have different personalities. They are so cute, funny and special animals!

I love ducks and geese. I feed corn to many ducks at the park, so many unique types have been to the park, and most of them come over. Ducks and geese are the cutest birds. The cutest goose I have fed is a cackling goose, and the cutest duck I have fed is a shoveler duck.

Ducks are my second favorite animal because they are smart crazy and cool looking and the only animal better than ducks are dogs!

Ducks are the best animal ever with their awesome quacking and cool yellow wings. They are just plain awesome

40 Tyrannosaurus Rex Tyrannosaurus, meaning "tyrant lizard", from the Ancient Greek tyrannos, "tyrant", and sauros, "lizard" is a genus of coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur. It also had a tremendous bite force, the strongest of any Dinosaur and living terrestrial animal. Its bite force reached up to 12,800 pounds (roughly ...read more.

If life was as big as a room, then the reign of the dinosaurs is as big as a window. For all those animals above combined, they are no less than a tiny speck of dust. Think about it. The animals like dogs and cats lived for about 20,000 years. Dinosaurs have been along for about 200 million years. That's 200,000,000 years. 200,000,000>20,000 by a lot. Dinosaurs rule!

However... sharks have been along for more than 400 million years... and counting. Even older than the oldest TREES. And you though trees were old. So... 400,000,000>200,000,000>20,000 years. Wow.

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

1. Ankylosaur
2. Troodon
3. Microraptor
3. Velociraptor
4. Tyrannosaurus Rex
5. Diplodicus

BEST ANIMAL EVER! They should be at the top!

41 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

Did you know that dogs are wolfs but dogs are pets and wolfs are wild so I love them both

42 Cows Cattle—colloquially cows—are the most common type of large domesticated ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified collectively as Bos taurus.

Hold on a second but cows are number 1 cows are so good for the world name one thing why it deserves to be in 42nd

I like cows but why are people killing them I know for food but isn’t it enough to kill pigs and why not only milk them :/

Who said cows give provide meat? Eating cow is a sin... please don't say so. They should be #1, because they are useful and as well as a goddess, sacred animal, not only in India but also in various other countries. They are holy. We Indians even drink its urine, it provides health and makes our body strong. Cow should, nay, is #1!

They are useful when they are alive- they provide milk, their dung is useful- and when they are dead-they provide meat, bones for gelatine and leather

43 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!

The best type of shark! I love how strong it is

I like sharks because they are dangerous

44 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

I want one they are cute I like white tailed deer

45 Crocodile Crocodiles or true crocodiles are large aquatic reptiles that live throughout the tropics in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia.

I love crocodiles we have been to the crocodile park in broom and one we thought was just sleeping but it wasn't strait away it jumped up and we got to hold a baby crocodile and the Gye said that one crocodile escaped from the cage and then we thought oh great and we got an ice cream

They are so much cooler than alligators!

Crocs are the best! - Fireboy

Better than alligators

46 Kangaroo The kangaroo is a marsupial from the family Macropodidae. In common use the term is used to describe the largest species from this family, especially those of the genus Macropus: the red kangaroo, antilopine kangaroo, eastern grey kangaroo, and western grey kangaroo.

Australia is fake and these are fake. Anything you have seen in a zoo is simply fake. If you have been to Australia, you were put to sleep in New Zealand and it was all an imagination. If you are currently in Australia, either your life is a simulation, you are in New Zealand, or you are simply asleep by the New Zealand government. Thank you for your time.

There from Australia and they eat grass and shrubs

Kangaroos are the best. They can jump far.

I like kangaroos they jump a lot

47 Falcon

Falcons are my favourite animals, they are extremely underrated. People say the the Cheetah is the fastest animal in the world. Falcons are the fastest in the world with Cheetahs in a close second. I still love Cheetahs. So there, I love Falcons and they deserve more than they have.

Meh loves Falcons they are the best. Magestic, strong, fast, caring parents and, overall, just my favourite animal. Though, I am insulted and called weird for this but I don't care. No matter what others say, they will always have a large place in my heart. When I am older I want to be an Ornithologist and dedicate my life to birds of prey. I will also write books about them. Also, I think Falcons are underrated and people say that the cheetah is the fastest, but that's not true, though I love cheetahs and know many people who do. So, yeah. I love Falcons. There is not much more to say except the fact they are amazing and beautiful creatures. - Echostorm

I would love if they were blue, still awesomne though (I hope you got the joke) - darthvadern

Cheetahs aren't close second by the way tons of birds are faster

48 Raccoon The raccoon, sometimes spelled racoon, also known as the common raccoon, North American raccoon, northern raccoon and colloquially as coon, is a medium-sized mammal native to North America.

The sneaky little rascals are impossible not to love. With their cute little masks and funky personality, these guys should be way higher up on this list!

They are my favorite animal and are really adorable :) ugh they need to be higher on this list

Awesomely intelligent, clever, dextrous, and adorable little tricksters. Magnificent creatures! - evoxpisces

Raccoons- Nature's little bandits

49 Thylacine The thylacine was the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times. It is commonly known as the Tasmanian tiger or the Tasmanian wolf.

Probably my favourite historic animal ever! It's so smart and intelligent

I believe these creatures are great, and what if they aren't extinct?

Thylacine mouths can go really far down

Thylacines are my favorite animals and THEY ARE NOT EXTINCT! They're so cool, and their jaws can open to 120 degrees! BRUH.

50 Chimpanzee Chimpanzees are primates of the genus Pan which consists of the common chimpanzee and the bonobo. They are a part of the tribe Hominini, which also includes humans, and the family Hominidae where all great apes are included. Like their closest living relatives the modern humans, chimpanzees are social ...read more.

Awwwwww! How are these absolutely incredible mammals in last place. The way they swing from point A to point B is just magnificent. The way they interact with Eachother other makes me think of simpler times. I wish we were all like them, independently finding our way.

How is this not #1? They're a few steps away from being us! Also, they're going to rule the planet one day so you better start loving them... - truckturner

That's not even something to joke about. Do you know how many people died because of him? Grow up!

Chimpanzees are the smartest animal on Earth.
