12 OF EARTH'S LARGEST ANIMALS!
Is there anything more impressive than the size of the planet when compared to our tiny bodies? Not to get existential, but we really are just specks of sand on the beach of the planet Earth.
Well, if that didn’t make you feel small then let’s go one step further. We decided to look around the planet for the largest animals that still live to this day. Some of these animals are peaceful, like lovable big dogs, and others are the kind of creature you wouldn’t want to run into in the dark.
Buckle up, put on your safari hat, and get ready to see 12 of the largest animals on the planet Earth!
As we dig deeper into our list of large animals we will see them get bigger by an order of magnitude. So let’s start off relatively small with one of the largest known Alligators on the planet: the American Alligator.
The American Alligator calls the southeastern portion of the United States its home and it has gained a large following due to its cold reptilian nature, gigantic toothy jaws, and mesmerizing speed in the water.
Alligators typically eat small animals but they are ready and willing to take a bite out of a slow footed human. Don’t think you can outrun one of these like you would your pup at dog training schools, these ‘gators are fast.
