Top Five Rarest Animals in the World

There are a large number of animals out there that are on the edge of extinction. I have listed below the top 5 rarest animals among the whole world. Now known that these are the rarest animals at the time, action has been taken to help save these beautiful animals.

Here are the world’s rarest animals. Some of them could already be extinct but all we know is that there are people out there that care. All around the world there have been researchers and scientists to gather these rare animals in hope of repopulating these species. Do your part in caring for animals and take care of your pets and report anyone who is abusing Any type of animal.

  1. The Pinta Island Tortoise

    This tortoise from the Galapagos Islands is the rarest animal of them all. There is only one of them still alive. They were said to be extinct 30 years ago until a ranger happen to find one. They have been searching for a female tortoise so they can get the Pinta Island Tortoise back on the map.

  2. Baiji

    The Baiji is better known as the river dolphin. They are usually found outside of china. The reason that has caused these mammals to become so rare is the fact that these dolphins were competing for their food with the human race. The humans would hunt fish and it just so happened to be what these rare dolphins eat. There have been reports that this species is now extinct and they are in search of them as we speak.

  3. The Vancouver Island Marmot

    This rare animal can be found in the Vancouver Islands in British Columbia. They are said to congregate in the mountainous regions. In the year 2000, the Canadian researchers found the population of these rare animals to be at an all time low of just 75. They have since then put about half of that number in rehab facilities where they are trying to mate them and get the population back up to around 400 – 500 individual Marmots.

  4. Seychelles Sheath-tailed Bat

    They can be found just north of Madagascar in the Seychelles Islands. There is said to be less then 100 of these bats left here on earth. Scientists don’t know much about this specific type of bat but it is said that an amount of 500 or more would be enough to keep this species from becoming extinct.

  5. Javan Rhino

    There is said to be only around 50 of this type of Rhino left and researchers have noticed that they were only found in Indonesia and Vietnam. The animal has been poached for its horn and is said to be used for medical reasons. The humans have caused this animal to become one of the top five rarest animals in the world.

    Thank you for your research and information. It is a shame that humans can be so destructive. I hope they are able to save these and more animals from extinction.

    I think the Amur Leopard of Siberia definitely should have been on this list. Only about 30 remain in the world.

    all things happen for a reason if a animal is supposed to die out it should we shouldn’t be the ones saving them because they cant repopulate themselves the money should be spent on better things and don’t say the war stuff cause inless you want the terrist to keep killing innocent people the war needs to keep going

    ARE YOU FREAKING SERIOUS??? THESE ANIMALS ARE DIEING AND SOON TO BE EXTINCT MAINLY BECAUSE OF US HUMANS, OUR GREEDINESS AND DESTRUCTIVE NATURE NOT BECAUSE OF SOME ANY OTHER SIMPLE REASONS. THINK BEFORE YOU POST SOMETHING LIKE THIS, IT MAKES YOU SOUND SO STUPID.

    i agree with Ramon S. some people have very stupid ideas. a lot of animals are becoming extinct becouase of pollution,poaching, land clearing, global warming, hunting and war. who causes all these things? HUMANS! lots of people are out there causing all thoses things and more to threaten animals. and most people don’t care! we are lucky to have a handful of loving and caring people willing to try thier best to save these beautiful animals. though i am only 13 i can’t wait till i’m older so i can go out there and make a big differance.

    A special shout out should go to the Alabama cavefish, of which only 100 are believed to remain.

    ummm shaine…. we kinda have to spend money on helping these endangered animals because we destroy there natural habitats, and they cant make them back up cuase bulldozers take trees down and make grass in to dirt and its kinda hard to rebuild habitats from that

    In all actualality, those are the rarest animal species. There are hundreds of sub-species of every type of animal. For every one lost 50 take it’s place. You want the rarest type of animal that can possibly occur? Humans. Though they are the most populous and intelligent animals, the rate of which intelligent life such as humans occur could be 1 in every 100,000 stars. Humans are the rarest single-specie single-genus animal. Over 1000 others are the rarest sub-species or specie of a multi-ranging genus. And really, mass extinctions cause more extinctions then humans. One killed over 80% of all life.
