We researched for a long time what is the most strong and fierce animal on the earth.
These 10 species in this page are placed among tor 10, because they are tough fighters when beating others on the ground, and we define the fighters as a male one.
✳Armed illustrations below do not show the strong point of that animal.
No. 10 Gorilla
5.5~5.9 ft / 330~440 lb
The strength of a gorilla’s grip is about 1100lb, and the guinness record shows awesome 1300lb. They have no armed points like claws or fangs, and they are sensitive to pains.
No. 9 Komodo dragon
6.5~9.8 ft / 150 lb
They have fierce poisonous fangs that can kill a buffalo with one bite.
If bitten, bloods congelation cannot function, and there is no way but to lose all bloods to death.
Komodo dragons have keen noses, so they never let their preys slip out.
No. 8 Crocodile
16~23 ft / 1100~2200 lb
They have the most strong jew on the earth, that pulls any other animal down with 2200lb strength. You know even a lion has only 660lb?
Crocodiles bite preys and roll themselves to bite of the meat. But they are too slow to do it on the ground. Their attack under the water is enough to let us rank them in 4th.
No. 7 Tiger/Lion
5.5~8.2 ft / 400~440 lb
There’s few differences among tigers and lions. You want to judge which is the more strong? See this article ‘Battle between lions and tigers'
Especially sneak attacks by tigers are awesome. The most fierce in sneak attack, but on this ranking we cannot miss that water buffalos are likely to defeat tigers when fighting in a ring.
No. 6 Water buffalo/Bison/Gaul
7.8~9.8 ft / 1320~2200lb
Actually Bison is the biggest of these, and the buffalo is the least. They rush the enemies with speed and roughness, and sometimes it kills flesh eating animals.
No. 5 Giraffe
16.4 ft / 1760~2640lb
As you know, they are very tall. In giraffes’ fight they bump their necks each other, and surprisingly they have strong legs that allow them to run fast (50 km/h). It also means they can kick other animals with much strength.
No. 4 Grizzly/Polar bear/Brown bear
8.2~9.8 ft / 660~1100 lb
Some say that bears can kill bisons in rings, but in wild nature we never heard of those situations. In average, bears have advances over bisons.
We ranked them higher than giraffes, because they can make giraffes fallen down. Giraffes laid down are just have no strength.
No. 3 Hippo
12.4~15 ft / 5500~7700 lb
They are only animals that can take a bite on a watermelon, and they have big mouths which widely open at an angle of 150 degrees.
Different from its appearance, hippos kill hundreds of people every year, and the Masais fear them most badly. They have massive power to bite and kill other animals like lions and alligators (But we cannot help notice they are slow, and have too big fangs to move swiftly). So they are sometimes assaulted from behind by lions, and eaten to death.
No. 2 Rhino
9.8~15 ft / 3000~7900 lb
Big horn and rush with iron body. Who can say they don’t deserve No.2?
Even a lion cannot penetrate their skin.
No. 1 Elephant
19.6~24.6 ft / 12800~16500 lb
Overwhelming triumph. They are utterly the king of beasts.
A tale is said that an African elephant killed almost 15 bisons at a time.
・・・I have to say that I’ve chosen Komodo dragon and gorilla only because I wanted to picture them. Other animals like an elk, elland, musk ox, jaguar, and medium sized bear is as fear as these animals.
Off course you must see lower rank one beat the upper. We designed this ranking just based on an averaged status. Sometimes bears can be defeated by tigers, or lions beat buffaloes. Komodo dragons poison can kill others even tigers.
You know this article is my own conclusion that my research and reading of illustrated books embodied. Let’s try making your ranking. I recommend it.
