21 Turtle Turtle

They are to cute I love them they don't really swim that much they find currents to carry them they always lay eggs at the beach they where they were hatched

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

I have two turtles they are awesome

So cute!

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

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

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

They are extremely smart and can take on two great white sharks and win. What's not to love.

Dolphins are overrated orcas deserve their spot

23 Jaguar Jaguar

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 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

I Wish They Could Kill Dora The Explorer

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

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

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


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.

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

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

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

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

It's the best

27 Koala Koala The koala is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia. It is the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae and its closest living relatives are the wombats.

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

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

Their adorable! Especially the way they carry their cute babies.

I think koalas are the best animal in opinion world

28 Seal Seal Seal, known as Pinniped, is a marine carnivorous mammals who native to all continent, commonly native to North America and Antarctica.

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!

Sea lions as well

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

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

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

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

They make good pets

30 Blue Whale 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

I think the blue whale is an amazing creature

Look at that but!

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

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

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

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

I never liked arctic foxes, I always saw them as overrated. Please, don't vote for these overrated idiots

32 Guinea Pig Guinea Pig The guinea pig, also called the cavy or domestic guinea pig, is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia.

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

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

Guinea pigs are the cutest animals ever!

33 Pig Pig A pig is any of the animals in the genus Sus, within the Suidae family of even-toed ungulates. Pigs include the domestic pig and its ancestor, the common Eurasian wild boar, along with other species; related creatures outside the genus include the peccary, the babirusa, and the warthog.

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

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

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

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

Pigs are my favorite animals! I'm suprised they aren't at the top!

34 Canadian Lynx Canadian Lynx

How is this lower then monkeys?

They are so cute

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.

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

35 Hamster 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...

Hamsters are a lord forever in peace.

36 Whale

I love whales! This and chinchilla should be number 1


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vampires and Dracula were meant to raise the popularity of bats but failed. Batman did it!
Anyway, I love the ultrasonic sound these creatures emit. Bats can eat up to 1,200 mosquitoes in an hour and often consume their body weight in insects every night, helping keep bug populations in check. - LightningBlade

39 Ducks Ducks

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!

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

The best animal ever - Himalayansalt

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

I am interested in whales a lot. They are my favorite marine creatures. I always love to see them jump off the surface and flip in the air. These animals can sing as well. And what's more? Their singing can be heard from 20 miles afar! A typical song lasts from 10-20 minutes, is repeated continuously for hours at a time, and changes gradually from year to year. - LightningBlade

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