The Top Ten

1 Penguin Penguin

I love penguins I wish there were penguins at my zoo

Never doubt the penguin. Penguins deserve the #1 spot and are not just the best animal in the zoo, but the best animal in the world. It's about time penguins get the respect they deserve. They are the only reason I ever go to zoos. Penguins are the cutest, most interesting animal ever. VOTE PENGUIN the zoo's best animal ever!

Penguins are my favourite animal and my zoo has them

2 Giraffe Giraffe The giraffe is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant.

Giraffes are so gentle and kind and you can feed them, and show the public how awesome they are and get people to aid in the effort of protecting them in the wild

Giraffes are the loveleyest animals ever! I think that people should stop hunting giraffes for their skin. Giraffes are awesome! Giraffes rock!

Hello, all. I am commenting here because you seem to harbor a passion for giraffes. Sadly, these poor creatures are suffering. Visit my profile to learn more. - EarnestfromGiraffePants

Beautiful and elegant creatures, though I hate seeing them in zoos

3 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.

The Lion is the King of the Beasts for a reason. It is renowned world-over as a symbol of courage, and strength. It is for this reason, amongst others that it is one of the greatest animals in Creation, and definitely one of the greatest zoo animals.

Lions are really cool and quitte popular with young boys

When I was 5 I went to Bristol Zoo. They had Lions there and I asked the keeper if I could take him home because I loved them so much and obviously he said they weren't for sale, but ever since then I've loved them and now their my favourite animal.

Lions are the most majestic creatures I've ever seen
A must have for any 5 star zoo

4 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.

Tigers are the greatest animals known to science! Nobody can capture their full power! They are the greatest animals at zoos, hands down!

Tigers are near extinction and need our help to save them. One of the many things we have to do to do this is to breed them in zoos, which is why we should stress to put them in zoos. Thank you!

Tiger have big teeth, or knife, and beautiful animal is good speed. This is orange body the elips line black color. Good prospect to to film killer and pc game to art big opponent mortal kombat 2 the KINTARO, mutant tiger and man.

Tangy tiger is the best. Penguins. That word has nothing compare to the greatness of tigers. Tigers should no t be the best animal on the zoo but in the world. VOTE TIGERS if you have any sense at all. The only reason I go to the zoo is to see them. Don't forget to subscribe. they are the best creation on earth.

5 Red Panda Red Panda The red panda (Ailurus fulgens), or also known as the red bear-cat or the red cat-bear, is a mammal native to the Eastern Himalayas and Southwestern China. Despite having the word "panda" in its name, it's not a panda. It's closely related to raccoons

They are the cutest animals, that are rare, but still amazing and interesting.

I don't know anything about a red panda but they sound really cool. I would like to see one in real life.

Adorable to watch as they sleep in trees. They are more closely related to raccoons than giant pandas but are way cuter than raccoons.

Red pandas is cute

6 Elephant Elephant 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 love Dumbo the movie so I love elephants even though they are the worst smelling animals in the whole zoo. They are cute and fat and have really big ears. They are also really fun to draw for artists like myself. Theses animals are so easy to draw even fingerpaint

Elephants are the coolest and are one of the most interesting animals I the world

I also love dumbo and I think elephants are so cute. Their long trunks and the way they use them to take a shower is very adorable. Elephants are very sweet animals with big floppy ears that are so cute. Overall I love elephants and how they are so sweet.

Elephants are like really big sweet babies if you are gentle around them they will be gentle with you they are so sweet I love elephants they are AMAZING also please go to World Best Dog Breeds And Vote For boxers

10 Gorillas Gorillas Gorillas are ground-dwelling, predominantly herbivorous apes that inhabit the forests of central Sub-Saharan Africa.

They are so interesting, especially when they are awake and ready to run! They seem so like us. My family's favorite place to go is the gorilla habitat because they are so alive!

I Love gorillas but I don't like seeing these majestic great apes of Africa in zoos in captivity I rather see them in the wild in their natural habitat.

Lions may be the kings, but Cheetahs most certainly are the Queens. They are graceful, extremely fast, and not to mention gorgeous!

15 Lemur Lemur Lemurs are a clade of strepsirrhine primates endemic to the island of Madagascar. The word "lemur" derives from the word lemures (ghosts or spirits) from Roman mythology and was first used to describe a slender loris due to its nocturnal habits and slow pace, but was later applied to the primates on more.

My lemur bob wears my aftershave when I am jogging with his arm tied round my neck and his double chin hanging. I can never see where I'm going and I always trip over his long toes

This comment is spot on!

I will add this to my zoo

What is this uhgly thing it lokks like a furry rat

Yasss so beautiful

17 Rhinoceros

Despite what most people believe rhinos are actually quite shy and are actually relatively sweet. They are not the aggressive monsters people think they are. Yes will charge at you but they do that because they have poor eyesight and can't see distance so they approach a potential threat in this way. They are also extremely endangered, quite possibly one of the most endangered animals on the planet due to poaching. I absolutely love rhinos and it brings tears to my eyes thinking about how many rhinos have been senselessly slaughtered. There is really no other animal that is quite like the rhino either, A horn or two on his head for protection, big strong and built like a tank. These animals are magnificent beasts. - evoxpisces

There like an unstoppable juggernaut.

It's a huge and powerful creater so it must be the best

I hate poachers, hunters, animal abusers and the predators of the rhino

20 Okapi Okapi The okapi is a giraffid artiodactyl mammal native to the northeast of the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Central Africa.

I love okapi! They are so beautiful with their zebra striped legs and tawny brown body! So unique! I don't think there's anything else like them!

I love okapis, most people don't know what they are but they should, they're awesome!

Certainly the shy but although majestic Okapi should be number one. Depending on the position, this mammal's fur can be purple, black, or brown. I also have a stuffed Okapi named Gecko (pronounced Gee-koe)

I love the okapi because it's part zebra

22 Otter Otter Otters are carnivorous mammals in the subfamily Lutrinae. The 13 extant otter species are all semiaquatic, aquatic or marine, with diets based on fish and invertebrates.

Let's be more specific, river or sea? Both are great! River otters play with their food before they eat it - who doesn't love that? Sea otters hold hands as they drift off to sleep (pun intended), so they don't get separated at night. I have otters in the forms of books, movies, wood carvings, stuffed animals, puppets, ceramic, candles, on mugs, on t-shirts, etc. Real ones are best.

Otters are amazing creatures. Making them even more sweet, they hold hands while sleeping to keep them from drifting off from each other. They are amazing aquatic mammals and they are majestic animals in all.

though I've seen an otter in the wild. But still they are awesome. - jakkejakke

Why aren't otters higher up on the list!?! They are sooo adorable and playful! Plus sea otters hold hands when they are sleeping! How cute is that!?! Go otters! #OtterLove

23 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.

I fed them honey and it was fun

Cuteness! The bears are my favorite.

Bear Has A Fat Tummy

Bears are funny

24 Wolf 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.

Wolfs are beautiful animals and are so strong, and should be on the top of the list. People mistake wolfs as deadly, cruel animals mostly because they kill animals (even though every animal does that) but they only do that because they need food! Wolfs are my favourite animals and I don't know why it isn't for others

Wolves got beat out by crocodiles? Really? These animals are majestic and the genesis of our greatest ally, dogs. They are only so low on this list because the media and movie industry (The Grey) paint them in an antiquated and harsh light. They deserve to be in the top 5 if not 10.

Yes I agree wolves are misjudged, Just because people make movies of them killing people doesn't mean its true, wolves have done nothing yet we steal there land and kill them for fun. STOP WOLF HATE! STOP WOLF HATE!

37 Platypus Platypus The platypus, also known as the duck-billed platypus, is a semiaquatic egg-laying mammal endemic to eastern Australia, including Tasmania.

Platpuses deverve to be at least in the top 10 because they show us what past-life animals were like. Due to the fact that they walk like lizards and lay eggs. Also I think a lot of people know Perry from Phineas and Ferb.
