The Best Animal Videos on YouTube in My Opinion

Aside from cat videos, I love watching online clips of other animals. I’ve also watched videos with lions and a meerkat. But this list is exclusively about animals that can be tamed.

Although YouTube and other online videos come and go, I won’t include links for copyright reasons. However, you can search for the videos in your own time.

In addition, these clips don’t have plots or a story to tell. So, spoilers don’t really matter.

Now, let the list begin. Note that all the pictures are from public domain sources and NOT the videos themselves.

Rabbit Squealing 2003

The user filmed the clip in 2003, and in it, she holds a rabbit. The rabbit squeaks over and over again, and then the owner says that it’s so cute. 

I agree! That is why I come back to it over and over again.

I don’t know about you, but I have never heard a rabbit squeak before. In fact, I didn’t know they made any noises until recent years. But the video didn’t teach me that. My mom told me.

It seems that rabbits’ voices are a little deeper than guinea pigs’ voices. Guinea pigs squeak, too. However, a lot of people don’t know that, which surprised me.

Websites say that guinea pigs are quiet… but mine weren’t. They used to make loud, deafening squeaks all the time. Not all of them, but a good number of them did.

Anyway, if you want to watch this video, I’d suggest including the year, 2003, in the search bar. That way, you get the correct result. You will see a floppy-eared gray rabbit in somebody’s hands.

Birds Singing Hit Songs

This video features a compilation of birds singing different hit songs, including “Gangnam Style,” “Dilemma,” the “Pirates of the Caribbean” theme, and even the iPhone ringtone. It’s long, but full of surprises and humor.

Birds Cursing

YouTube has different videos of these. But each one I’ve seen made me laugh. The one that stands out to me is where a bird curses so much that the owner gets angry and warns him that someone could call the cops. That one is part of a compilation that runs for 30 minutes.

Other clips in this include people laughing when a bird swears, or when the owners tell them not to use that language.

Guinea Pig Olympics 

This is a music video, where a bunch of guinea pigs line up and perform tricks, such as jumping over a stick or through a hoop. The song in the background sounds like a pre recorded rock song with lyrics that match what each guinea pig does.

I adore this video as it combines cuteness with rock. I, myself, used to have guinea pigs. However, they never did as much outside of their cage. No way would they have competed in “guinea pig Olympics.”

Now onto the videos featuring a special fictional guinea pig star – the one below that looks like him

The Guinea Pig Way

This clip is a music video of a guinea pig dancing and explaining his life of how a cavy lives. He eats hay, pellets, fruits, veggies, and vitamin C. He also loves attention from people to pet and feed him as often as possible.

The song also features an occasional chorus of guinea pigs, going, “Ah, ah, ah, ah…”

Bing! I’m a Guinea Pig

Made by the same people who created “The Guinea Pig Way,” this time, the guinea pig focuses on dancing rather than his life. 

Unlike “The Guinea Pig Way,” this clip doesn’t include the cavy choir. It also runs shorter, but it still engages me very much.

The Real Bing Cavy

The same guinea pig that sings “The Guinea Pig Way” and “Bing! I’m a Guinea Pig” sings this as a parody to “The Real Slim Shady” by Eminem.

The lyrics focus on the idea of guinea pigs doing things that their owners forbade before, like chewing on paper, romance between male and female guinea pigs, and them wishing to be capybaras or bouncing like antelopes.

This parody got me into listening to “The Real Slim Shady,” which has a ton of explicit lyrics. I remember hearing thing song when I was elementary-school aged – thank goodness I didn’t hear the lyrics carefully.


I hope this post gave you some great ideas of animal videos to check out on YouTube. Even though not all YouTube videos stay permanently, I would love it if these do.
