Partially inspired by this article:

A giant saltwater crocodile weighing more than a tonne has been captured in a remote southern Philippine village following a series of attacks on humans and animals, officials said.

Measuring 6.4m (21ft) and weighing 1,075kg (2,370lb), it is the biggest to be caught alive in the Philippines in recent years.

It may also be the biggest specimen ever captured, officials said.

and that story about the guiness world record woman, I'm sat thinking about other animals that live or have lived that are huge.

I don't know why it fascinates me, but it's just so interesting seeing these other organisms that have grown to such a size. Even more, that some can live for so long, like the blue whale that can live for 200 years, crocodiles that can live for 100 years, etc.

Anyways, post some huge animals:


Gigantopithecus, the 3 meter (10 foot) high ape weighing half a tonne:



Megaloceros giganteus, a giant elk:

Does it have to be extant, or can it be extinct as well?

I used to love sharks a lot when I was younger. The megalodon definitely caught my imagination as a child:

Pretty big, theres the collossal squid too but I can't find a decent picture.
It didn't take long to realise
The safest place was not her arms, but her eyes
Where she can't see you
For her gaze, it blisters;
Grey skin to cinders

I went to the Iowa State Fair and saw a 3900 pound bull. It was the size of a car and had balls as big as canteloups hanging down almost to the ground.

Gonna call 'bollocks' on this pic...

yeah, the proper size, the jellyfish's diameter would be about a foot longer than the height of the person.

Flemish giant rabbits are roughly the size of a dog (and just as friendly!)
