The dog-like carnivors have a bit more variety. Here are my top 14 favorites:
14. Darwin’s Fox (Lycalopex fulvipes )
13. Brown Bear (Ursus arctos )
The largest of carnivores (along with perhaps the Polar Bear) these animals can be deadly, but friendly—almost tamed examples have been known.
12. Fennec Fox (Vulpes zerda )
The cutest of foxes.
11. Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes )
One of two stunning, red species of fuzzy creatures.
10. Eastern Spotted Skunk (Spilogale putorius )
I like the striped one too.
9. Common Raccoon ( Procyon lotor )
I don’t think I would like these as much if I really knew one. Sterling North, however, convinced me I love these.
8. Sea Otter ( Enhydra lutris )
Watch any video of this little guy and you will understand.
7. Polar Bear ( Ursus maritimus )
I always liked these guys, but one day at the National Zoo in D.C. watching one play underwater made me love them.
6. Least Weasel ( Mustela nivalis )

The smallest of carnivores, also one of the more ferocious.
5. Arctic Fox ( Vulpes lagopus )
The coolest of foxes.
4. North American River Otter ( Lontra Canadensis )
These guys play. ‘nough said.
3. Giant Panda ( Ailuropoda melanoleuca )

These animals are proof not only of intelligent design, but graphic, intelligent design.
2. Grey Wolf, Dog ( Canis lupus )
I have had several of these as friends.
1. Red Panda ( Ailurus fulgens )
Find a video online of these guys playing in the snow.
