The largest animals on the planet

Spread the love

Fortunately for modern man, all the terrifying giants of the past are prehistoric creatures that disappeared during evolution.

However, their size is simply amazing:

1. Megalodon. Huge shark. The length of the body was about 20 meters. 1 tooth of an adult predator does not fit in a teenager’s hand.

2. Titanoboa. 13 meter snake. The largest snakes these days are almost 2 times smaller in size.

3. Paraceratio. Ancestor of a rhino. Despite the fact that the animal was a herbivore, its appearance could well inspire horror: they reached 5 meters in height.

4. Gigantopithecus. Huge monkeys who preferred to eat bamboo. Their growth reached 4 meters.

5. The absolute record holder is a blue whale, whose dimensions reach 33 meters. However, unfortunately, this species is on the verge of extinction: there are no more than 5,000 individuals worldwide.
