Ever wondered what the most popular animals that people search for in Google? Let’s take a look!

1. Cat

Whether it’s Grumpy Cat or a cute kitten getting up to mischief, the world can’t resist looking at adorable cat pictures and videos! When we feel the need for an “awww” moment, cats are always there for us! 

2. Dog

As man’s best friend, it is no surprise that dogs are near the top of the list of the animals googled the most. Everyone agrees that videos and pictures showing a dog’s unwavering loyalty and innocence is incredibly heartwarming. 

3. Bird

Did you know that there are around 10,000 species of birds in the world? Since the dawn of time, humans have been fascinated by the way they fly, their colorful feathers and the antics they get up to. 

4. Horse

Elegant, regal and impressive, horses have one of humankind’s favorite animals for centuries. Who can resist their calm and gentle nature, their affinity with us and their apparent ability to sense our emotions? 

5. Snake

No one ever wants to cross the path of a deadly snake whose powerful venom can kill us within minutes. This hasn’t stopped us from having a morbid curiosity about the world’s most lethal snakes and we love learning how to identify the markings on the likes of puff adders, rattlesnakes and king cobras. 

6. Eagle

It is no coincidence that the American Bald Eagle is the emblem of the most powerful country in the world: the United States of America. Looking at pictures and videos of this majestic bird spreading its vast wings and having a commanding presence everywhere it goes makes it one of the most popular animals to search for in Google. 

7. Shark

Anyone who has ever watched the Jaws movies or enjoyed Shark Week will know that it is not a wise decision to mess with sharks. Killer sharks, especially, look menacing and very dangerous and this adds to the way in which they demand respect and space from the human race. 

8. Pig

Pigs have traditionally been viewed as dirty and unhygienic animals with little appeal. That was until the 90s movie “Babe” was released. The movie cast this unpopular animal in a much better light, prompting us to give pigs a second chance. Today, pigs (especially piglets) have a much more positive image and are seen as adorable and sweet.

9. Lion

As the king of the jungle, the lion is a force to be reckoned with and exudes power, respect and nobility. A male lion’s mane gives it an impressive look, while lion cubs resemble big, domestic kittens that are fun to watch. 

10. Wolf

Closely related to one of our favorite domestic animals, wolves have lived on the fringes of human society for hundreds of years and hold a lot of appeal due to their way of living. We love the fact that they move in packs, support each other and howl at the full moon!

11. Dolphins

It is very difficult to dislike dolphins. It is a known fact that they are very intelligent and kind animals who have a special bond with humans. They are considered to be one of the most compassionate animals and it is not uncommon to see dolphins helping injured animals and helping them to the surface of the water. Many people have swimming with dolphins on their bucket list and if you have ever experienced this, you will know that it is an amazing life experience. 

12. Penguin

With their trademark waddle and adorable, black and white appearance, penguins are highly popular when it comes to Google searches. Legend says that penguins are monogamous and choose a lifelong partner by gifting them a small pebble. Who could resist that special characteristic and not enjoy watching videos of penguins slowly waddling around on the ice? 

13. Tiger

Tigers are one of the most popular big cats and have a distinctive, stripy appearance. Their unique look and adorable faces make them a pleasure to look at. Another reason why we are so enamored with tigers could be that they are endangered and face extinction if we don’t do something soon.
