The largest predators – Top 10

The list of the largest predators includes land animals and, as in the case of two species – elephant seal and crocodile, semiterrestial animals. Therefore, the table does not include the largest predators on Earth – such as sharks or killer whales, which are assigned a separate ranking – including the Largest Sharks.

Big cats

The table shows four representatives of big cats – three naturally occurring species (tiger, lion and jaguar) and the largest of cats – a hybrid (combination of male lion and tigress) – the liger.

Other representatives of the big cats – the leopard, the cheetah (the fastest animal in the world) and the puma – were omitted to make room for representatives of other species

Jaguar

Bears

Similarly, in the case of bears, only the two largest representatives of the species were listed – the polar bear and the largest brown bear – the Kodiak, excluding the remaining bear representatives (e.g. grizzly), as they would dominate the list.

Crocodiles

The largest crocodile is the saltwater crocodile and it is the guest in our list. The remaining large predatory reptiles can be found in an independent list – The largest reptiles – TOP10.
