The Top Ten

1 Honey Badger Honey Badger The honey badger, also known as the ratel, is widely distributed in Africa, Southwest Asia, and in the Indian subcontinent.

Honey badgers will take on animals that are bigger and stronger than it.and still win

Not invincible nor at the top of the food chain but are very tough for their size and most animals wouldn't try to kill them because they are not very worth it in risk/reward

Not only are they technically immune to knives and teeth, but they can even survive snake poison. They were named "the worlds most fearless animal"

Because they are super tough and can take on lions

2 Lion Lion The lion is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies in Africa.

From cubs to adult hood, no mammalian as a more brutal and violent life than lions. The lion as it all, 59.8 % of muscles the most in all land mammalians. As social they are the most intelligent cats. Lions do a lot more complex hunting tactics than any other big cats. In the 2016 intelligent test, the hyenas came first, the lion second, the leopard third and the tiger last. The fearless lion can attack in all angles, is a lot more physical in his hunts than the tiger. The lion as by far the world's greatest predator-prey weight radio (BBC).

Tough animals. They are extremely fierce and can't be beat. Their strength is unmatchable. Lions! The king of the jungle!

It's just a stereotype

The king of jungle,no others can survive from his hand

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