Some animals can grow to absolutely huge sizes and we often underestimate or forget just how big some of the most famous animals in the world are. Therefore, we’ve found some pictures that will remind you and maybe teach you about just how incredibly large some of our favourite animals are. Also, there’s a couple of names on this list that you didn’t even realise were that large. We hope you enjoy!
1. African Giant Snail
You know those tiny little shelled slugs out in your garden? Well in Africa, you’re likely to come across these absolutely enormous African Giant Snails that can grow to the size of a man’s forearm.
2. Saltwater Crocodile
Now we all know that Crocodiles are big, but some Saltwater Crocodiles can reach lengths of up to 6 meters which is nearly 20 feet long. That’s the length of 3 and a half average mails laying head to toe.
3. Coconut Crab
If there’s anything more creepy looking than these coconut crabs then we’d like to see them! These enormous crabs in Australia have been known to take people’s cats, dogs and even small children! These are the biggest crabs in the world.
4. Freshwater Stingray
It may just be the fact that it is completely stretched out but the Freshwater Stingray can reach absolutely enormous sizes as you can see in this image.
5. Southern Elephant Seal
The Southern Elephant Seal is the largest carnivore on the planet. Not quite a T-Rex huh? However, these animals are still absolutely enormous as you can see with this lady reaching up to place food in one’s mouth.
6. Nomura’s Jellyfish
The Nomura Jellyfish is the biggest Jellyfish in the world which only makes it more of an incredible looking Jellyfish that the others. This image shows a man swimming next to one and really shows off the size of this enormous ball of gloop.
7. White Rhinoceros
A White Rhinoceros can reach sizes of a small horse and that’s considerably huge. They are also the heaviest animal on the planet after Elephants. Just a shame they’re becoming so very extinct.
8. Canadian Moose
These absolutely enormous animals aren’t just seen as one of Canada’s proudest animals but are also seen as absolutely enormous. They’re very underrated in their size and, as this image shows, these creatures reach sizes of campervans!
9. Kodiak Brown Bear
The Brown Bear is the largest living land Carnivore, along with arguably the Polar Bear. As you can see here, when it stands on it’s rear legs which it does before attacking sometimes, it can reach heights of nearly 10 feet tall. This is very big in real and made it to the list of 10 unbelievable biggest animals in the world.
10. The Blue Whale
We all know the Blue Whale is the largest living animal to ever grace this Earth, however, some people don’t understand just how big. This picture of a human being swimming next to one can really put that into picture. That beautiful, wonderous creature is gigantic.
