The Top Ten

1 Cow Cow 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.

They give us food, drink, and clothes (leather). Back then, cows can be used to plow the land - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

They provide us the things for daily basis use and milk for the better health of the growing children...

Don't think I have to explain here. Dairy Products, meat, leather etc etc. - zxm


2 Horse 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.

Farming, traveling. Previously used for war. - zxm

4 Sheep Sheep The sheep is a quadrupedal, ruminant mammal typically kept as livestock. Like all ruminants, sheep are members of the order Artiodactyla, the even-toed ungulates.

Yes, sheep is useful. Like MT said. Their milk is popular, their wool is needed for making clothes, and their meats are also good - zxm

Their wool will keep you warm, the meat is delicious to many, the milk is very good, they trim the grass by grazing. Very useful! - missyweirdo

I have always wanted to have a few sheep.I think they are so sweet.And in the spring watching the lambs playing and jumping.But can anyone tell me can a sheep bloat? As a kid my parents had cows and I've seen them bloat.

Milk, meat and wool (i.e. clothes, blankets). - Metal_Treasure

5 Donkey Donkey The donkey or ass is a domesticated member of the horse family, Equidae. The wild ancestor of the donkey is the African wild ass, E. africanus. The donkey has been used as a working animal for at least 5000 years.

They will kick coyotes all day all night and protect your farm! They are a lot stronger than horses and don't get scared as easily! Tough little guys! Carried Mary to Jerusalem! - missyweirdo


Carrying things and for some traveling. - zxm


6 Dog Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.

Searching, hunting, guarding are common things. I heard once a dog saved a man/woman's life by preventing from taking drug overdose - zxm

Dogs are the best pets ever. they can hunt, they can find bombs,

Dog is love dog is lyfe

They r useful and they like our family

8 Camel Camel A camel is an even-toed ungulate within the genus Camelus, bearing distinctive fatty deposits known as "humps" on its back.

You can't see Camel in every country. And it may not be useful in every country. But for desert areas camels are very useful. They can store fat/water in their humps. Which can provide them their water. So they can travel trough deserts for many days. People of those areas can use them for traveling through deserts, or use them for carrying things and also can eat their meat - zxm

Desert version of Horse and cow. - zxm

9 Elephant Elephant African elephants are elephants of the genus Loxodonta. The genus consists of two extant species: the African bush elephant, L. africana, and the smaller African forest elephant, L. cyclotis.

Carry people and their goods, lift many things. They are strong. They can bear many goods and can go far - zxm

They are popular in Thailand. Do many works - zxm

I am what you say

And also Elephant Circus. It''s not very useful. But it entertains viewers - zxm

10 Bee Bee

A world without bees, is the end of the world

Bees are useful in so many ways, like providing honey as a sweetener instead of sugar, and helping the plants to grow by pollinating them.

Providing honey - zxm

Bees are very useful and we should all help to protect them

13 Pigeon Pigeon Pigeons and doves constitute the bird family Columbidae, which includes about 310 species. Pigeons are stout-bodied birds with short necks, and short slender bills. They primarily feed on seeds, fruits, and plants.

Pigeons make great pets

Besides carrying messages (which saved many lives in wartime), they are meat birds. I don't eat my beloved pet pigeons, though. - Crwth

Can be used for sending messages - zxm

"Don't insult pigeons? " Is that a serious demand? Will you be writing a manifesto?

The pigeon was the only animal on this list to receive a truly derogatory comment. When you denigrate pigeons, you insult us pigeon fanciers, and we will defend our birds. - Crwth

14 Shark Shark The tiger shark is a species of requiem shark and the only extant member of the genus Galeocerdo. It is a large macropredator, capable of attaining a length over 5 m. Populations are found in many tropical and temperate waters, especially around central Pacific islands.

15 Snake 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.

Heard they are used for creating medicine - zxm

16 Human Human Humans are not exactly wild animals, but they are not domesticated either. Humans are proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white.

Most of the animals above would not have the opportunity to serve those functions without humans and some of them aren't even useful for those functions anymore because humans are more useful and we replaced them by building machines.

Humans are animals technically except we just gave ourselves the title of 'human' and 'sevalized'.

17 Rabbit Rabbit Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.

They make good meat. Yum.

Make meat and multiply fast if you were to live on the moon

Useful? All they do is destroy crops and dig holes in your yard.

They're cute, but not useful. - LemonComputer

18 Duck Duck Duck is the common name for a large number of species in the waterfowl family Anatidae, which also includes swans and geese.

23 Cat 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.

Are you for real? Cats are less useful than spiders? They catch rabbits, rats and mice and clear them away. Mine also once scared a big fox away.

Why last place?

24 Turkey
25 Spiders

Spiders catch and eat mosquitoes and other harmful insects to human. Therefore, spiders are useful. Just don't make them fight, or even catch one. Because some of them are poisonous.
