These animals have brains, but their actions and behavior point to very low mental complexity. Here are the top 10 d.u m.best animals in the world.
1. Cane Toads
Cane toads are found in abundance in Australia, but if there is anything else abundant about them, it is the degree of their s.tu p.idity. These creatures are so d.u m.b with their s.e .x drive that they are observed humping practically anything. They will hump on ca.rca.sses of other animals, rats, lizards, and just anything.
Male cane toads are so senseless that they even hump on their d.e.a d female counterparts. One individual female cane toad can lay as much as 30,000 eggs at once – that is, a tremendous amount of d.u m.bness unleashed unto the planet simultaneously.
2. Goblin shark
Just when you thought sharks couldn’t be one of the d.u m.best animals, you meet a Goblin shark with a retractable spike-pit. It’s so lazy and sluggish that it doesn’t want to go looking around for food. It merely sits there waiting for the prey to come as close to it as possible. The Goblin shark is often found off the coast of Japan.
There is no way a list of the most unintelligent animals will be made, and the sloth will not appear – it is simply impossible. These animals rank right at the very top of the pyramid of the most mindlessly d.u m.b creatures.
They are known for sleeping on trees for almost the entire day. The only time a sloth will descend from the tree is when it wants to defecate and after that, it climbs up very slowly, to sleep again. The sloth is so d.u m.b that when it is climbing a tree, it mistakes its limbs for branches of the tree; it then makes a fa.t.al s.l.i.p and d i.es from the pl.un.ge.
The domesticated turkey is indeed one of the d.u m.best animals in the world. They prefer to drink water only when it’s falling from up top, and sometimes they d. i.e in the rain. They are d.u m.b enough to keep staring at the sky endlessly even when it’s raining. They su.ff.er from a h ere.di ta.ry condition called T.et.a.nic Tor.t.ic.ollar Sp.as.ms, which means they will occasionally stare at the sky non-stop, even when it’s raining. The male turkeys have so high s.e .x drive that sometimes indulge into s.e .x with the d.e.c a.p it.ated head of a female turkey.
This bird has an interesting name, but there is absolutely nothing captivating when it comes to intelligence. It is a parrot owl, and it is native to the enchanting nation of New Zealand. The kakapo is so s.tu p.id that its lack of intelligence costs it its own life.
If a pr.ed.at.or shows up, rather than bolting away with its life, it will remain petrified in one position, and the lucky p.re.dat.or will instantly turn it into a snack. This bird takes delight in eating berries that are known to grow just once in four years.
Its f.o.olishness is not limited to this alone, it also displays the same lack of insight in reproduction. The clumsy male attempts to get the attention of females by producing a b.o.oming call. This produces so much echo that the female ends up confused. There are just around 150 kakapos in the world today, a glaring testimony of their s.tu p.idity.
Flamingos are cute and beautiful. They are blessed with two legs, but they prefer to make use of only one in most cases. They sleep only on one leg. Another example of their d.u m.b behavior is that they try to catch fish while keeping their beaks upside down in the water, which is not a smart strategy. Do they do this because they are that d.u m.b or just because they want to look different from every other animal?
7. Lilac-breasted roller
The lilac-breasted roller is the national bird of K e.n y.a. It is among the d.u m.best animals on the planet because of its inclination towards tall perches even in places where nesting sites are almost non-existent. The bird doesn’t attempt to flee or escape even when someone comes uncomfortably close to it, making it an easy target for p.o.achers. The bird looks beautiful, though.
A few people may be heartbroken to realize that their favorite cute animal is a s.tu p.id bimbo. Pandas are some of the most beautiful animals, but their foolishness is legendary. For a carnivorous animal, the panda prefers to eat plants like bamboo. When it comes to romance, pandas are also super boring, and s.e .x does not excite them, which h.a.r ms their population.
As if that is not enough, pandas are also selfish and uncaring for protecting and taking care of their young ones. Mother pandas can be so a.g.gre.ssive that they have been reported several to have k.i.lled their little ones. So yes, the panda is cute and lovely, but it is far from having a functional brain.
Jerboa is found in Asia and North Africa, and it has poor energy efficiency. Surprising, the British Amy used jerboa as the mascot for their 7th Armored Brigade. The creature’s weird jumping behavior keeps predators at bay. But they are not particularly good at hiding or scouring for food.
The Koalas have the smallest brain-to-body ratio among animals. These cute animals are found in Australia. The koalas had to develop four stomachs to digest their favorite food, which is eucalyptus leaves with little nutrients. And they know nothing about health. According to an estimate, about 90% koalas have c h.la.my.d ia. Sometimes they even fail to recognize their own food, and eventually s.t a.r ve to d.e a.t.h.
