All animal images provided by Google Images My Top Ten Animals Domesticated Cats Cats are my favorite animals, that's why they are number one in my list. But cats do have many amazing features as a dometicated animal. They have excellent night vision, being able to see at VERY DIM light levels. They also have hearings able to detect higher frequencies than our normal ears. Cats are famous too because of their ability to land on their feet when in the air. On another note, I like cats simply because they are really cute. =^.^= Domesticated Silver Fox Same species as the Red Fox, the Silver Fox is next to my number one spot. The main reason for this is simply because in my opinion foxes seem to be a mixture of dogs and cats (double cuteness)! Although they are actually more related to dogs (canines). Of course, I like the domesticated version better, since the Red Fox can be dangerous to humans, due to aggression. The main features of the fox I love are its pointed ears and very bushy tail. Golden Eagles Eagles are my favorite animals for the symbolism of power. From ICS Eagles, to Assassin's Creed, to the animal itself, to even my favorite jacket with the beaked hoodie adorned to symbolize eagles and Assassin's Creed. Golden Eagles are my favorite of the eagles simply because they have traits of yellowish-golden colors, because Gold is one of my favorite colors. These birds are well known for being a very powerful predator to many other animals. From powerful claws to blazing air dive speeds, eagles are downright very powerful animals. Barn Owl Owls in my opinion are interesting birds. They are a symbolism of intelligence and wisdom to me. There are a lot of myths and stories involving owls in ancient folklore, like that owls are wise. One special feature of owls that I always remember is their ability to turn their heads all the way to look behind. Owls are also typically large birds as well, keeping them well in the hunting game. The reason the barn owl is my favorite of all is simply its friendly face and looks that it has. Pythons (curtus) Symbolism of power, speed, and reflexes. These are abilities that I prefer. Pythons constrict their victims to kill them. They come to my mind pretty often since one of my favorite handguns is the Colt Python, which is an extremely powerful .44 Magnum. My favorite pythons are all pythons, but in this case I chose the curtus since I live in Thailand and Python curtus is found in Southeast Asia. Domestic Rabbit Rabbits are simply one of the cutest creatures on the planet! Although I'm not a big fan of rabbits, I have to admit that they are really cute under all the fluffy furs, long ears, and its furry ball tail. I find it interesting that it is one of the mammals that eats vegetables, specifically carrots. Domesticated rabbits are also one of many's favorite pets, as they make almost no noise, and it is pretty fun watching a ball of fluffy fur just bouncing around! Based on my preferences. 1 2 3 6 5 4 Raccoon Dogs Yes, they are dogs/canines. However they oddly look like raccoons in the proportions of a canine. It is not related to raccoons in any way and it likes climbing trees. It is indigenous to East Asia, and introduced into to Europe. They are also the only known canines that hibernate in the winter. Binocular Fish The Binocular fish is part of the family of Barreleye fish. These fish are extremely freaky with the fact of having clear SEE-THROUGH heads, meaning you can see the internal organs as it is alive. Their eyes also have barrel-like shape, hence the name that goes vertical. But Binocular fish has them going forward horizontally, giving it the name. Mimic Octopus Octopuses are incredibly smart, most of them have camouflaging abilities. But the Mimic octopus takes it to a whole other level by camouflaging and impersonating another organism at the same time. It can mimic the physical characteristics and movements of many organisms. It can even decide what animal to impersonate depending on local predators. They live in the tropical seas of Southeast Asia. Platypus One of the weirdest looking creatures out there on the Earth. It is also one of the few mammals that lays eggs instead of giving live birth, making it even more interesting. The platypus is famous for having a mixture of a duck-billed face, beaver tail, and otter feet. Its even more crazier with the fact that its claws that it possesses is also venomous. 7 8 9 10 Animalia-Chordata-Mammalia-Carnivora-Felidae-Felis-catus Comparison: Sand Dune Cats: Felis Margarita Domesticated Cats are found commonly across the entire world. Sand Dune cats are typically found in desert-arid like areas, this is because they have respiratory problems in humid places. Therefore, Sand Cats are found mostly in very dry places. Domesticated Cats Sand Cats Animalia-Chordata-Mammalia-Carnivora-Canidae-Vulpini-Vulpes-vulpes Comparison: Arctic Fox: Vulpes lagopus The Red Fox/Silver Fox and the Arctic Fox are very similar, they just live in different places. Red foxes tends to live almost everywhere that has normal weathers. Arctic foxes are found in very cold places like snow. They shed their furs seasonally and a cute thing is they wrap themselves with their bushy tails as blankets when sleeping. Silver Fox Arctic Fox Animalia-Chordata-Aves-Accipitriformes-Accipitridae-Aquila-chrysaetos Comparison: Tawny Eagle: Aquila rapax To be honest, most of the animals in the same genus but different species will usually have a difference of habitat, and therefore diet. In this case, the Golden Eagles are usually found in mild to colder climates like Europe, Canada, America, and Russia. Tawny Eagles however, are found in dry and desert like areas, and can be found in Africa and the Sahara Desert. Golden Eagle Tawny Eagles Animalia-Chordata-Aves-Strigiformes-Tytonidae-Tyto-alba Comparison: Elf Owl: Micrathene whitneyi Barn owls are well known as being very common owls to be seen quite often, being found largely almost all over the world. Elf owls are known for being tiny and found living inside cacti, they are usually found in the Southwestern of the U.S., and Mexico. The Elf owls are also right now endangered species. Barn Owl Elf Owl Animalia-Chordata-Reptilia-Squamata-Pythonidae-Python-curtis Comparison: Python reticulatus Python reticulatus is also largely found in Southeast Asia. However these ones have reticulated line patterns on their skins and are excellent swimmers in water. Python curtus Python reticulatus Animalia-Chordata-Mammalia-Lagomorpha-Leporidae-Oryctolagus-cuniculus Comparison: Brush Rabbits: Sylvilagus bachmani Brush rabbits are usually found in brushes and grasslands off the West Coastal areas of North America. It is part of the cottontail rabbit genus, so it has a distinct feature of its stub fur tail. Domesticated rabbits are kept as pets, its wild counterpart is the European Rabbit. Domestic Rabbit Brush Rabbit Animalia-Chordata-Mammalia-Carnivora-Canidae-Nyctereutes-procyonoides Comparison: No other species exists in genus Nyctereutes Raccoon Dogs are the only living species left with information in its genus. It is an old world genus. The only closest comparison available would go up to the family Canidae, at which point branches off to the more common canines we see often today like dogs and foxes. Raccoon Dogs Animalia-Chordata-Actinopterygii-Argentiniformes-Opisthoproctidae-Winteria-telescopa Comparison: Javelin spookfish: Bathylychnops exilis The Javelin Spookfish is the largest growing of the Barreleye fish family. Binocular fish has its eyes pointed forwards like binoculars. But the Javelin Spookfish has protuberances on its eyes which is believed to act as lens for the eyes. Binocular Fish Javelin Spookfish Animalia-Mollusca-Cephalopoda-Octopoda-Octopodidae-Thaumoctopus-mimicus Comparison: No other species in its genus have been discovered yet The Genus Thaumoctopus is for octopuses with the ability to mimic other animals. So far, the mimic octopus is the only species known to be able to do so. Mimic Octopus Animalia-Chordata-Mammalia-Monotremata- Ornithorhynchidae- Ornithorhynchus-anatinus Comparison: Again, it's one the rare animals with only one species officially known in its genus. All other possible genus or species related animals to the platypus are either undiscovered or only just possible recorded histories of those animals through fossils, documents, ancient wall paintings, and etc. Platypus
