Top Ten Best Animals

The Top Ten
1 Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore. It is active all around the world, and is one of the most popular domestic pets as of 2021. They come in more than 350 breeds.

I think all the dog haters over on the cat section are just people who have a bad history with dogs. There's TONS of dog breeds to choose from, and I'm sure you can find one that will make a good pet.
Do you want a dog to play with a lot? Get a german shepard!
Do you want a laid-back dog? Get a bulldog!
Do you want a dog that always looks like a cute puppy? Get a shibu inu!
Do you want to be sleep deprived? Get a chihuahua!

As cute as children are, I just love dogs more! I am having 0 children but 2 dogs! One Golden Retriever and one German Shepard! Naming them after my dogs in my fictional script stories that I make! Golden Retriever is named Gold and German Shepard is named Flower! I love dogs! My 2nd favorite animal! I also love nature in general! I want to work at the ASPCA and the WWF and as a marine biologist for mammals! I would also love to work for the helpless elderly and Jews as well as the Children's Hospital despite me not wanting any children! To top it all, dogs and nature are just amazing and if I had to choose buying my favorite game I wanted since I was 5 or donate money to the ASPCA, I am going with the ASPCA and saving all the animals!

For the record dogs are gentle and elegant creatures but if you like cats,that's okay too because no creatures are perfect.Some people only like cats because they think dogs are killers.Some usually say dogs are food motivated well yes they are but they don't necessarily have a natural killer instinct but they are wonderful creatures both inside and out

I love dogs a lot. My mom and dad said that once we move Texas we are going to get a golden retriever puppy. I also love cats but their not so suitable for me, but I don't like the way people fight about how cats are better than dogs and dogs are better than cats. I think that they should keep their own
opinion, And they can get any they want cat or dog whos stopping you?

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.

If you know me, it may seem that I hate cats. Kinda do, to be honest. I don't hate ALL cats, but . . .
First, before I start ranting, let me just say, cats are not terrible. They can be cute, thoughtful, gentle, etc. A lot are. They make good pets, (although technically they're not domesticated cough cough) and they're really unique, if you think about it.
Second, this is aimed at house cats. I'm not yelling at wild cats. Just house cats who are well fed and treated well.
Third, I'm not exactly that much of a dog-lover either. I do like them more than cats, but I'm more of a bird-fan.
Now for the ranting.
House cats are lovable. Cute. Gentle, thoughtful, eats their own mess, whatever y'all have to say. But some people (mostly cat lovers) don't see (or refuse to see) the dark side of these furry cuties.
Cats kill billions and billions of birds, mammals, and reptiles a year. Period.
You might say, "They're so useful, they kill so many rats!" If not as many, or more, ...more

It's not that I don't like dogs because I do, but there's something about cats. Or a lot of things actually. Whereas dogs can be smelly and loud, cats are graceful, quiet, soft, cuddly, independent, don't take up your time, and groom themselves. Just think, they're licking their fur so you don't have to clean it up. Cats are underrated, and they're just as good. My cat sleeps on my bed at night, helping my ANXIETY. They purr and it just warms my heart to see that they're happy.

I freaking hate dogs. I don't care what people say. A dog almost killed my BFF when she was a toddler. She was sitting on the driveway eating an animal cookie and then the dog that everyone thought was the sweetest spirit just jumped on her and ripped her face off. She is so kind and I'm surprised that she still loves those giant rodents after what happened. Dogs are murderers. Regardless why. She's lucky that she survived. My older half brother has a dog named Maddie. She keeps trying to attack me. Her breath smells and she's super scary. She won't stop jumping on me. I know you dog lovers would say that sHe'S jUsT eXciTeD tO sEe yoU but NO. She won't stop growling and snarling at me. People probably abuse dogs because they took away cat's love and cat's affection. I can tell why half brother named the dog Maddie. So ironic.

I love cats. My cat is sitting with me as I write this. Cats aren't attention seekers like dogs. Cats take care of themselves and they even try to eat ...more

I am personally more of a cat person, but I'm really tired of the constant fight of cats vs dogs. Can we just appreciate the good qualities of both? I love both cats and dogs, and there's really no need to fight over which is "better"

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

I don't know how my love for these beautiful animals began, but I'm glad I like them. Wolves are amazing animals that hunt in packs and learn from their hunts, and their fur is very pretty, no matter what color it is. Wolves also have their own unique howl, and they are very devoted to their pack.

To begin with, wolves are very majestic. There howl is so full of feeling and expression. They are hunters. They work together as a pack, taking down prey, tackling bears, pumas— anything a danger to their cubs. They are a symbol of loyalty and bravery. These bold creatures deserve to be honored for their strength and wonder. But before finishing, I would like to point out two things: a wolf pack is typically only the mother and father wolf, as well as their cubs, perhaps some dispersals, or older siblings. And, for the record, wolves don't howl at the moon, though, they do, of course, howl to communicate varying messages. Thanks for the comments! All animals are amazing, and should be respected, even if we do have our favorites!

Wolves are definitely smarter than housedogs. They stay in organized packs unlike dogs who rely on people for food. Wolves also have ranks like the alpha to keep them all in shape. Wolves can even use stealth for an advantage. My dog comes while I'm watching YouTube and I know when she's behind me and in the exact position. When I am at a creek, I have the feeling that there is a wolf, one time I even saw one. Wolves are also one of the strongest dogs, I recommend never to have your dog with a wolf unless your dog is fully trained for hunting. If you don't, that wolf will completely obliterate your dog and probably you along.

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.

Tigers are awesome, they are fast, athletic, and intelligent. Most Tiger breeds (I think) are endangered and are being held captive, Tigers deserve to be free they are wild animals. Tigers for me are my favorite but close behind are wolves. Another thing is a Tiger is my spirit animal, I get a lot of traits from them and I even have teeth similar. Tigers are free and great animals.

Tigers are awesome, I love all animals but tigers are my favourite, so powerful, tigers are one of the most majestic and beautiful animals in the world.

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!

Tigers are one of the most majestic and beautiful animals in the world. Other than that, they're the biggest (Siberian Tigers, that is) and strongest cats in the world. They're solo hunters can can take down prey much larger than they are. They're powerful and efficient hunters, one of the best nature has to offer.

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.

So long and thanks for all the fish. We're sorry it had to come to this. We tried to warn you about this. I love dolphins. One of m faves but still got one or two better

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!

Allow me to tell u about dolphins. Dolphins are believed to be the most intelligent animals on the planet. The intelligent creature should rule the water! They are just so adorable they mimic your actions like turning heads,

Dolphins are believed to be the most intelligent animals on the planet (yes, animals includes humans) as an added bonus, they are beautiful, swift and very friendly when they come in contact with humans. The most common dolphin is the bottlenose, as seen in the picture, but these are only one species of dolphin. the others are also typically friendly, social, and just as intelligent as the bottlenose.
Fun fact: Orcas, AKA Killer Whales, are actually not whales, but the largest species of dolphin.

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.

It started becoming a hard choice to chose from the original list of best animals but I'm not really a big fan of penguins, however, they are just really cute, especially the chicks.

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!

Awesome! They can look quite funny when they are waddling around, but I understand why a lot of people don't like them. Most of the time it's because they can't fly, but that's what makes them unique! #6 is reasonable, but I would love it if it swapped places with The Cats, and not only because I don't like cats. Penguins deserve that #2 place!

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.

Tigers are so cute when they are cubs, they are cute when they are bigger too but not as cute as when they are cubs. Lions are even cuter when they are bigger because of their huge mane.

Lions are at lest better than the tigers in a way but they can still this for a few reasons. I know they're kinda of overrated, I LOVE LIONS! They are the best but not better that my loyal cute strong dong dunking and I'm not saying that because it's my opinion but he really is even if he was not my dog!

Lions are at least better than the tigers in a way but they can still make this list for a few reasons. 1) They can be told from their age and gender.
2) They are more relaxed than tigers.
3) In a way that makes sense, lions seem nicer as I mentioned them being more relaxed.

I know they're kind of overrated, but it's not for no reason. They're one of the most majestic animals out there, they're very strong, and are basically the superior versions of wolves (physically). As a pride, they're one of the most powerful animals in nature. A lot of people criticize the males since the females do 90% of the hunting, but the males defend the territory of their pride, as well as the cubs, like a king defending his land and people.

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, among ALL animals, although other animals my be more cool, once the horse was used as animal of war and it was considered a need for all men to know how to take care and ride a horse. I LOVE HORSES! No, I don't love them, I AM CRAZY ABOUT THEM! Horse-crazy! I talk about horses, read about horses, watch about horses, and maybe even daydream about horses! I mean my whole class knows I love horses xD! Why in the world is the horse number 8? Horses should deserve to be on the top!

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.!

Although other animals may be more cool, fierce, brave, cuddly, and easier to take care of, it is the horse that carried humanity for centuries. They helped us farm, they helped us move, they even helped us in battle. Now they are used mostly for show or fun, but not too long ago (only a couple hundred years! ) they were everywhere helping with a whole lot of things that machines now do. As well they can be extremely loyal and are trainable (unlike many undomesticated animals). They can be great companions who stay with you longer than a dog or cat. To top it off, horses are beautiful.

I think horses should be the first. They are beautiful, intelligent, spiritual, and they were a big part of history. I have only been riding horses for almost 2 years and I have fallen in love. I leased a horse for 3 months and it was amazing, a lot of responsibility, but still amazing. Now I am leasing another horse and it is the best thing ever. Also once you love horses most people never stop. I also always feel better when I am around horses.

9 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.

Do I think they are the cutest animals? Almost.
Do I think they'd be great as pets? Not necessarily.
But an elephant is without any doubt the best animal out there. Absolutely superior, these creatures mastered the art of living in the wild.

Elephants are adorable, they need to be protected. How can people hurt such loveable animals, elephants have great memories, they are smart, and best of all they can tell emotions and help out. These animals are super emotional and deserve to make this list.

Can't believe they're only number 10. They're smart, compassionate, loving creatures that take care of each other and even mourn their dead. They will remember your deeds, both good and bad, forever. They can also use their trunks as snorkels when they go in water haha

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!

10 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 fox's prey is small mammals, birds, reptiles, frogs, eggs, insects, worms, fish, crabs, more.

Foxes are adorable, foxes are defensively my favourite animal. many people dislike foxes because they are sneaky, cute, I LOVE FOXES! My brother loves foxes, which made me love foxes and made my whole family love foxes! (OK, not my whole family) but me and my brother do! Even though foxes are in a dog family, they actually act like cats, they sleep a lot just like cats, they climb trees just like cats, foxes are they only dog family that can climb trees.

I've grown to like foxes. They're cute, they're smart, they're a predator! I now understand why so many people like them. In fact, they are my new favorite animal, I've finally ditched some stupid, useless prey animal that can't do anything. You might know who I'm talking about... foxes eat them.

Many people dislike foxes because they are sneaky, sly and mean. But this is very false. Not just humans, but all animals have personalities NOT according to their species. if we look at one species they are not all the same are they. They all have very different lives and thoughts. I have to say out of all animals I think foxes are the ones who have the most personality second to humans. Every fox I've ever met has been different. Completely different. Some are very shy and quiet others are very playful and outgoing. They are also extremely beautiful. Some may disagree but I definitely know that I think foxes are amazing.

Foxes are adorable, despite the fact they eat birds, really sly, and once again they are cute, love their orange/red and white fur, talented etc.

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

If you've seen the movie Paddington, then you might feel the same. Bears are really cute especially the cubs and it doesn't matter the breed. Pandas, Polar bears, grizzly bears. Paddington is just one of the cutest characters out there.

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.

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!

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!

12 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.

Pandas are the CUTEST-THINGS-EVER! They are just sooooo cute and eat like a cute baby! Although the red panda is sooo cut the giant panda is like 5000 times cuter, they are so chubby and cuddly! My favorite thing about them is how they roll down snowy hills so please vote for these CUTIES!

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 truly wonderful, so please, vote for them!

Before deciding on your fave animal do some research first.
Pandas are kinda dumb. Not that I'm a panda hater (I'm chinese). They are cute, yes, very cute, but so stupid. Pandas are not biologically designed to be herbivorous, but they lazy to a point of not doing anything about it. Maybe even lazier than me Lol yah but they poop up to 40 times a day. They are not interested in making more pandas. And they are overrated by the internet. Yes, they are a symbol for China and sooo cute. But kinda dumb.

Pandas are adorable and when they have babies they are very protective over them and that is a good thing and I love pandas so much because they are funny to.

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

Monkeys are smart and ever so cute, there is just something about them that makes them so amazing. I mean, they are amazing climbers and they can even be pets. Michael Jackson had a monkey, a lot of people have monkeys nowadays.

Monkeys and primates in general are some of the greatest animals of all time. In some ways they are like us. You can look one in the eye and it'll look back into yours and you can feel some sort of understanding; that despite your differences you can still respect and care for each other. They also are funny to look at lol

Monkeys are awesome. So are horses and dogs and cats and oh how could I forget DOLPHINS, but monkeys are the most fascinating, most like us. I think they have feelings beyond any animal, humans included. What do they think like?

Monkeys are really cool animals. They are very intelligent and also very cute. If you really think about it pretty much all primates are smart. Its almost like they can communicate to us in a way. It is so cool!

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 once saw this golden eagle at the zoo, and it was HUGE. All eagles are cool, I don't really have a favorite, it would be a tie with the golden eagle and the bald eagle. But really, all those eagles are cool. My ranking of eagles.
1. Bald eagle
2. Golden eagle
3. Harpy Eagle
4. Wedge-tailed eagle
5. Tawny eagle.
Yep. That's about it.

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.

America, bald eagles, any of this uh, ringing a bell? Eagles are amazing!
Would you like me to repeat it until all you can say is GO BALD EAGLES! Ya, I didn't think so.

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!

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. 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.

Even though I do kinda like cheetahs, I like hyenas better.And to all of you saying cheetahs are the better than hyenas because they actually hunt, I'm sorry to bust you but no.Hyenas ARE capable of hunting their own food.Actually they are the best hunters of the Savannah, better at hunting than cheetahs or lions.Also to all those saying that hyenas kill innocent Cubs, so do cheetahs and lions.All animals are in danger when young, and a male lion will have no hesitation to kill a hyena cub and leave it.Please consider this before you call hyenas evil.

Cheetahs are the 11th fastest animal on the planet, and falcons do not just fall, they don't have the title of world's fastest animal for no reason, they do fly at a ridiculously fast rate.

Cheetahs are so awesome. They are so different and so expeditious. They rule! FYI cheetahs rule, tigers suck. Cheetahs are so awesome! They are the coolest animals ever! So are cats!

16 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.

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.

I want to keep 2 snow leopards as pets. A boy and a girl so they can keep breeding and they will be protected and then they will keep breeding and breeding and there will be so many! Unfortunately that's not how it works. 1. I can't have them as pets and 2. 2 snow leopards will not get millions of snow leopards sadly

I have done multiple reports in school about Snow Leopards and they are known as the most beautiful animal in the world in every article I have read. It is sad to think that anyone would want to harm them, they are just creatures living on earth like us. Snow Leopards are NOT supposed to be hunted, so protect these beautiful creatures, "Snow Leopards".

Snow leopards are beautiful and elegant. There have been NO reports of snow leopards attacking humans. They are incredibly fluffy and smart. Go snow leopards!

17 Rabbit Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world. Rabbits are known for having long ears, and for being agile, as in having a notable ability to jump.

Rabbits deserve to be at the very top of the list. They are awesome! They are intelligent, they are really fast runners who can reach incredible speeds up to 45 miles per hour. They are very protective of their kits (babies) they have great survival instincts and are great swimmers. How are they underestimated so much, seriously they can make great pets. Science even shows they are smarter than cats and dogs, don't mess with them though because their powerful hind legs can cause a lot of damage.

Okay. I'm the person who wrote that thing at the top of the section that says "oh rabbits should be at da top of da list, they are so awesome.". bla bla bla!

Now I've changed my mind. I have finally realized the many words that describe rabbits! And that is... how... USELESS! DISGRACEFUL! STUPID! VICTIMS OF EVERYTHING!

I am now proud and out there to say.. these "cute" but helpless pieces of turds are losers. Basically, everything eats them. Why would I like a useless prey animal? Why? You tell me! Anyways, I've ditched them and joined TEAM FOX!

Foxes are cool! The only rabbit, well, hare anyways that is cool is THE ARCTIC HARE! They can actually hunt! Really, google it for yourself!

I practically hate prey animals. They aren't smart at all and are eaten by everything. Useless weak turd, the rabbit is! I was stupid when I was younger to even like them.

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.

Yes, rabbits are cute and adorable. Yes they are tiny innocent balls of fluff, but that's not the major reason I love them. I came down with an extremes sickness and anxiety disorder. I would never leave the house or do anything that I wanted to. Then I got to pick out my very own bunny, something I'd been wishing for for a verrry long time. It took all that fear away. I lived picking her out. The cutest fluffiest white one, with the prettiest blue eye and brown eye. (Yes she has rwo different color eyes) I knew she was perfect and all that sickness and anxiety went away for a bit. Because I had that little girl with me and I knew everything was going to be okay. That's y I love bunnies.

18 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.

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.

The hate snakes get is totally undeserved. You only need to hand out with them and see they are not as violent as they are made out to be.

It's sad to me how much many people hate snakes. If people would learn more about them, they would know that snakes are gorgeous yet generally timid creatures that should be treated with respect.

Snakes are so majestic. Everyone thinks their evil because of Harry potter but this is so untrue. We humans tend to think the creatures most different from us are the most dangerous.

19 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'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...

They're cute, smart, and epic. They're actually a type of dolphin, but I'm glad there's a separate category for them because a lot of people don't think of them as dolphins

Killer whales are very smart and powerful. They even hunt great white sharks by flipping them onto their backs (belly facing the surface) which puts the sharks into a sort of paralyzed state and the shark can't move. It's like it's asleep. And then it's dead. Never saw it coming.

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!

20 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 love turtles but I hate how pandas are higher on this list than these guys are. Turtles are actually useful to the environment. Panda´s are not. Not that I want pandas to die but they are my least favorite mammal because they are useless. Yall wanna save them just because they are cute. Turtles are clearly cuter and more useful.

Turtle should be directly after cats. I don't agree with the comments that says cats are selfish, dogs are much worse. I wait until the day cats are first and turtle is second

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!

Turtles are cute. But my class at school always says "I like turtles." everyday which gets annoying. But that doesn't mean turtles are horrible!

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.

The long neck is very awesome. That is how they can get their treats up on trees! They're like the harmless dinosaurs of today!

Do I really need to say anything about them? They are the best animals in the whole world, no doubt so YOU BETTER AGREE!

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.

Ok, first off I'd like to reply to a previous comment about sharks here that needs to be corrected:

"Sharks, unlike other animals are not bullied and abused by mankind to be aggressive. We pretty much leave them alone, unless they attack an innocent person."

This is false information. Sharks have been constantly hunted, attacked, and gone after by humans for years and years, whether it's for shark fin soup, makeup products, or even just worthless sport slaughter. They have every reason to get back at us; and, with that being said, shark attacks are extremely rare. In the year of 2019, there were only five unprovoked shark attacks recorded—a very slight number compared to the whopping 100 million sharks killed by humans each year. That's right. 100 million. And yet every time it's the sharks that are displayed in a negative light, instead of the far more predatory humans who wipe out approximately 6.4 to 7.9 percent of all shark species annually. I suggest you find more ...more

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 just one of the most amazing animals. My personal favourite by the way. Sharks have such amazing facts about them. For example, some sharks like the shortfin mako can't stop swimming or they can't swallow the water to get oxygen. My personal favourite shark is the great white, but that's just me. One of the coolest animals ever.

You might say that, but would you like to be the guy being eaten alive in Jaws? Sharks, unlike other animals are not bullied and abused by mankind to be aggressive. We pretty much leave them alone, unless they attack an innocent person. Why can't they go eat fishes and squid and stuff? Yeah, I'm all for the cute little reef sharks

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

Really, can someone give me a good reason why a lynx, a CANADIAN LYNX is lower than a crazy thing that hangs out w/ Tarzan. No offense.

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

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

How is this lower then monkeys?

24 Sloth Sloths are mammals classified in the families Megalonychidae and Bradypodidae, including six extant species. Noted for their slowness of movement, they spend most of their lives hanging upside down in the trees of the tropical rainforests of South America and Central America.

this is crazy. How is the cutest, most elegant, and unique animal on the planet is in 50th escapes me. They are one of the most popular animals in the world and when I went to costa rica this year (2020) there were mobs of screaming tourists sprinting around this forest looking for sloths. They are so obsessed. I literally saw them climbing over each other up a tree to try and get to a sloth (thankfully they didn't) and this should be top 3

sloths are one of the most misunderstanded animals in the world. They are extraordinarily cute, they are only slow and "lazy" because of their digestive system, they are actually much higher than this (48) when it comes to popularity (they are actually the 14th most popular animal in the world). The fact that they are less than top 20 is a crime worse than animal poaching

No mere mortals can comprehend the greatness of the common sloth... so the sent me as ambassador to educate humans on the nature of the humble and elegant sloth, but I see that they are wasting their time. You clearly don't understand the meaning of life if you put this adorable animal 46th, behind ducks and extinct animals. Anyways, I'll stop now as you have noooo idea how long it took my tired sloth arms to type this.

Wait, how did sloth get back here! NO! Sloths are amazing. They save their energy by just eating leaves, they're WAY cuter than monkeys, and even though it takes a while, they always get where they need to go, beating the tortoise and the hare!

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

Majestic, gorgeous, and regal, yet so fierce and powerful. They can kill giant anacondas and small caimans (crocodiles don't even share the same habitat with jaguars), even in the water. A large caiman would already be too much to handle, but the jaguar knows to bite off what it can chew.

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!

-One of the last living ice age animals
-Only living North American Big cat
-Eat everyone's most hated creature (Crocs)
-Millions of other reasons

Jaguars are the top predictors of the America's and it is the 3rd largest big cat even though it is not even closely related to the jaguarundi but it is powerful enough to defeat a yellow anaconda which is bigger than the green anaconda.
