This list is dedicated to the most beautiful animals in the planet. These ten beautiful animals were chosen strictly based on their popularity.
Foxes belong to the family of Canidae and they are usually a little smaller than your everyday domestic dog. There are about 37 different species that can be referred to as a fox. They usually have a narrow snout and a bushy tail. Of the 37 species only 12 actually belong to the original line of foxes. The most common species of foxes is the red fox. Foxes are usually thought to be very cunning. All in all they are magnificent animals; they are wild but absolutely beautiful.
Turtles are basically reptiles. They are characterized by a shell that develops from their ribs and serve as a protective cover. The earliest known turtles date back to around 215 million years and are therefore considered to be the oldest members of the reptile family. The largest of turtles are aquatic though they do not lay eggs under water. They do breath under water though. When threatened these beautiful creatures can envelop inside their shells however, if rolled over they are very vulnerable.
8. POLAR BEAR
They belong to the family of bears. Polar bears primarily are natives to the Arctic Circle. They happen to be the largest carnivore on land. An adult male called a boar would usually weight between 350 to 680 kilograms. There are a total of nineteen polar bear subpopulations and eight of them are dangerously declining. They are classified as vulnerable species. This can primarily be attributed to large scale hunting. They are very important in the culture of Arctic human populations. Polar bear belong to the family or Ursidae.
Tigers happen to be the largest species amongst cats with the total body length as long as 3.3 meters. They can weigh around 306 kilograms. These guys are the third largest land carnivores that roam the earth. They belong to the family of Felidae. Tigers have featured in ancient mythology and folklore and appear on many flags, coat of arms etc. It is hard to believe that the tigers are endangered. They are beautiful creatures especially so because of their coat. Their attack tactic revolves around stealth and they are pretty good at that.
A male horse that has not been castrated is known as a stallion. I am actually really fond of these animals; I find them to be really graceful. A stallion is usually not an aggressive animal though that obviously depends on the kind of training. They require very careful management if you want perfection. The term stallion actually dates back to the era of Henry VII. They are herd animals but can be trained to take part in horse shows and horse racing etc.
They belong to the family of Felidae and are one of the four big cats. Some of the male exceed 250 kilograms in weight. They happen to be the second largest living cat after the tiger. Mostly these animals can be found in Africa and parts of Asia (natively). Around 10,000 years ago they were the largest mammals (in numbers) to roam the planet. They live around ten to fourteen years in the wild however if they are in captivity their age might increase to around twenty years. The male lion is easily distinguishable because of the mane around the neck which looks absolutely stunning in my opinion.
They are aquatic mammals. Dolphins are very closely related to whales too which is weird considering the difference in their aggression. There are around forty different species of dolphins alive which vary in size. They can measure from 1.2 to 9.5 meters in length and can weigh between 40 kilograms to 10 tons. They can be found in the shallow seas and would usually feed on fish and squid. They belong to the family of Dephinidae. They are considered to be very intelligent and are quite playful too.
These birds belong to the family of Accipitridae. They have many different species with over sixty found in Eurasia and Africa. Move out from these regions and you will find around 2 species in the United States and Canada, 9 species in Central and South America and another 3 in Australia. These are birds of prey and are usually very large in size and strongly built. They usually live in nests built on high cliffs or trees; gorgeous creatures. Just so you know, an eagle is not just one bird, there are many species and the third spot goes to every single one of them.
This is a name you do not frequently hear. There are around four different species of medium-sized wildcats and a lynx can refer to any one of those. The name Lynx originated in Middle English. They belong to the family of Felinae. They usually have short tails and black hair on the tips of their ears. They have a ruff right under the neck. These are the primary characteristics of a lynx. The largest among these species is the Eurasia Lynx.
1. ARCTIC WOLF
These guys are polar wolves or white wolves. They descend from the gray wolf and are mammals that belong to the family of Canidae. They can usually be found in the Canadian Arctic and parts of Alaska. You see a wolf-like creature and its pure white, you know it’s an arctic wolf. They are the only subspecies of wolf that are not threatened and that can be attributed to the fact that they rarely come across human contact.
