There are approximately 8.7 million species of animals on this planet with 6.5 million of them on land and 2.2 million in the ocean. And as you would imagine there are some creatures that range from the very small to the very big like an elephant for example. It’s huge but what if told you there are some creatures that were discovered that absolutely dwarf an elephant? Well, there are. In fact, there are some creatures that look like they belong straight up out of a sci-fi movie but the animals that I’m about to show you are anything but fiction. So prepare yourself for this one because
Here are 10 Abnormally Large Animals, that actually exist.
101. Colossal Squid
The colossal squid is a massive deep sea creature that can reach sizes up to 750 kilograms and 15 meters long. To put that into perspective, the average elephant is about 6.5 meters long. This is more than double its size. These things are like the squid-like monsters in old sailor tales with massive tentacles that drag entire ships underwater.
While they can easily swallow a person whole, they tend to feed on squids and fish that live in the depths of the southern oceans and rarely appear on the surface. However colossal squids specimens do occasionally appear when they die and wash ashore but some scientist has actually found special cameras that can capture footage of them underwater and used bait to lure them to the surface.
