Top 10 Toughest Animals

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

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"

Black Mamba? Out of my way. Lion? Pathetic. African Rock Python? Pah! Honey badgers are savage

They are so tough and reckless, because nothing gets in their way.

Honey badger should be #1 on this list.

2 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

King of the jungle is so tough that they take down elephants and hippos

3 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.

The tiger has a better avanteg than the lion because the tiger has a fierce reputation of the King of the jungle because it is the largest cat on the planet.

Tiger would kill a lion and is stronger, faster and much more lethal. All this lion is the best strongest animal BS is crap. A Tiger would kill one any day.

This is my favorite animal, because tigers always know their own things but tigers are smarter than lion or a snakes. Tigers are badass

He is strong! Let him be number 1

4 Water Bear

How did the lion get the top place!?!? Water bears are the toughest animals ever! They live for 60 years and can survive 10 years without water, they can survive extreme heat and extreme cold, they can live without oxygen, can survive dangerous radiation, and survived the 5 mass extinctions.

5 Hyena Hyenas or hyaenas are any feliform carnivoran mammals of the family Hyaenidae /haɪˈɛnᵻdiː/. With only four extant species, it is the fifth-smallest biological family in the Carnivora, and one of the smallest in the class Mammalia.
6 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.

In a pack, yes, but dispersals alone are pretty weak.

Rlly? They'll shy away from pretty much any fight, if they are alone...

7 Hippopotamus The common hippopotamus, or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus.

The hippo is the toughest animal in fact a hippo might be the toughest.

The hippo poops a lot with its tiny tale.

8 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

Lions sleep most of the time in their daily life. But when it comes cheetah, it runs all day long.

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

Orcas are super tough, maybe the toughest in the whole ocean!

10 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 can be super tough but not the toughest.

The Contenders
11 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.
12 Ape
13 Rhino A rhinoceros, often abbreviated to rhino, is one of any five extant species of odd-toed ungulates in the family Rhinocerotidae, as well as any of the numerous extinct species.
14 Jaguar The jaguar is a wild cat species and the only extant member of the genus Panthera native to the Americas.

It is simple. The Jaguar is the toughest animal. Plus, if they met a Jaguar would defeat a Lion.

They are super tough and they are almost the toughest animals in North America

15 Rhinoceros

They are tough and strong with no enemy except man.

16 Buffalo

They are quite tough

17 Wolverine The wolverine, Gulo gulo, also referred to as the glutton, carcajou, skunk bear, or quickhatch, is the largest land-dwelling species of the family Mustelidae.

Honey Badgers of North America and Eurasia. Could probably tear a Honey Badger apart as well, don't mess with a Wolverine, they chase off bears, wolves, mountain lions, and in some rare cases, tigers.

You' know an animal is deadly when it has bears, wolves, and mountain lions running for their lives. Wolverines are deadly, seriously.

Small but tough though less famous.

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

They are tough animals. Crocodiles are super tough and maybe the toughest animals.

They have thick skin

19 Mountain Lion The cougar, also commonly known as the mountain lion, puma, panther, or catamount, is a large felid of the subfamily Felinae native to the Americas.

Been known to chase off entire wolf packs...

20 Tyrannosaurus 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 more.
21 Bull
22 Ankylosaurus Ankylosaurus is a genus of armored dinosaur. Fossils of Ankylosaurus have been found in geological formations dating to the very end of the Cretaceous Period, between about 68–66 million years ago, in western North America, making it among the last of the non-avian dinosaurs.
23 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.

Tougher than we give them credit for, look at the Kangal, much less likely to back down from a fight than say, a lion or a wolf.

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