Humans may have ascended to the top of the food chain via evolution and inventiveness, but we are not the most hardy creature on the planet. (If you took away our toys and electronic devices.) In reality, we aren’t even the most populous. In compared to these 22 behemoths, we’re tiny and frail. There are monsters that have been tamed that tower over humans… Then there are the colossal oarfish, the man-of-war jellyfish, and a host of other animals. It’s surprising how massive these creatures are in their natural state.
Percheron supreme world champion: This massive horse is 19 hands tall and has earned the title of world champion for a reason.
An 11-year-old hunter was able to take down this wild, enormous hog. Do you think it’s a hoax? Jamison Stone was his name (the boy, not the hog). From the top of its nose to the base of its tail, the pig weighed 1,051 pounds and measured 9-feet-4 inches.
The biggest cephalopod (Architeuthis dux), which includes squid, octopuses, cuttlefish, and nautiluses, is the gigantic squid (Architeuthis dux).
According to Guinness World Records, the largest dog ever was Zeus, a donkey-sized Great Dane from Otsego, Michigan.
Zeus stood 3.6 feet tall at shoulder height. He stood at an astonishing 7 feet, 4 inches (2.2 m) when standing on his rear legs, higher than most basketball players, according to Guinness World Records.
African goliath frog: These massive frogs may be found in Cameroon. They have a 15-year lifespan and will eat anything, including bugs, snakes, other frogs, even dreams.
Chinese gigantic salamander: This lizard may reach a length of 6 feet and is nearly blind. It’s also the world’s biggest amphibian. They may be found in China’s streams and lakes.
