The world’s largest animals

The world of nature is too magical and surprising. It is quite interesting to analyze the curiosities of the creatures that together with us, we populate this planet. Let’s appreciate what are “the biggest animals in the world”.


Their sizes are impressive

In the world of fish, the largest of all is the moonfish, weighing approximately 2268 kilograms and approximately 4.3 mts in size and 3.2 mts wide. It can live about ten years and in part, it is due to the large number of huge teeth that make it pass by a dangerous shark.

The ostrich: it is “the largest bird on Earth” and also the heaviest; for that reason, the action of flying means a lot of work. But in the case of African ostriches, flying is impossible, considering that its weight exceeds 180 kilograms and three meters in height.


Its feeding mode is based on herbs, fruits, flowers and small animals arthropods. Unfortunately, like most exotic species, it is in danger of being extinct.

Capincho: “the largest rodent in the world”: this animal can be found in South America, throughout the continent and in some places it is known as capincho, chig’iro or capybara. Its average height is 1.3 meters. They live in swamps and wetlands, as one of their primary foods is aquatic plants.

Saltwater crocodile: it is 6 mts long long and is considered “the largest reptile in the world”. It is also listed as “the animal with the strongest bite in the world”. Or we can find it in South Asia and especially in the northern part of Australia. It can weigh between 550 and 1050 kilos.

Huge Alaskan Bears and Polar Bears: Of all the meat-eating animals, these are the most huge ones currently on record. Kodiak bears, as well as the Native Bears in Alaska, which are as if they were twin brothers of the polars; can be between 2.5 mts and 3.5 meters long, weighing approximately 1050 kilograms. Obviously, his strength is unimaginably uncommunal.

However, in the terrestrial world they stand out as the largest carnivores the bears mentioned above. But in reality, the most giant carnivorous animal ever is aquifer and is the southern sea elephant. The males of this spice weigh between 2300 and 4050 kilos, with dimensions of 4.7 and 5.9 meters along.

But without a doubt, the largest animal in the whole world is “the blue whale”. She exceeds the dimensions and weight of any known animal to date. It becomes heavier than the African elephant on the savannah, which weighs 7 and a half tons. But the weight of the blue whale is 200 tons.

It has a hole above its body, by which it launches a powerful jet that rises up to 9 meters in the air.
