Top Ten Wild Animals that are Known to Have Been Extremely Affectionate Towards Humans

You can never judge a book by its cover, and sometimes the most scary or misunderstood of creatures can be the most friendly towards humans. Here are some examples of animals that have been known to get along very well with humans, provided that you treat them with the same respect that you expect from anyone.

The Top Ten

1 Dolphins Dolphins 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.

They seem to really love humans! - lionsforlife

I don't trust them, something seems FISHY about them(even though they are mammals) - Myuuu

They’re planning to take over the world, one told me. He said "You can’t tell anyone, but we’re going to take over the human race." - SilverstreamSucks

2 Wolves Wolves 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.

I hope I never have to test this theory in person. Don't anyone go looking for a wolf's den, now. - BKAllmighty

They were literally one of the first animals to be domesticated by humans. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Wow, they’re super cuddly. Why didn’t anyone just walk into a Wolves den and start dancing! Tell me how it goes! - SilverstreamSucks

3 Elephants Elephants 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.

I’d say if you know one from the time they’re born, they’d be affectionate, but otherwise, never go up to one of these in the wild. Unless you want to get trampled. - PackFan2005

Not true. They can run you over and kill you. - 445956

4 Seals Seals Seal, known as Pinniped, is a marine carnivorous mammals who native to all continent, commonly native to North America and Antarctica.
5 Owls Owls
6 Beluga Whale Beluga Whale The beluga whale or white whale is an Arctic and sub-Arctic cetacean. It is one of two members of the family Monodontidae, along with the narwhal, and the only member of the genus Delphinapterus.

The image says it all. Unlike some other animals, they are friendly even to strangers (humans they don't know). I saw it at an Aquarium in Niagara Falls, Canada. - Metal_Treasure

7 Eagles Eagles 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.
8 Pandas Pandas
9 Lions Lions 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.

I applaud your list dwelling being but I sense a lion just sending other waves of our own conscious which we are gleeful binding forces between us as jointed species in a relationship as we distinctive beings are allies- Kevinsidis

Yes, go walk over to a lion. I’ll bet 100000 dollars he’ll kill you. - SilverstreamSucks

10 Pigs Pigs

Feel bad now for putting bacon in the pan... - PositronWildhawk

Why are the cops on this list? - judo8alex
