Massive Animals That Actually Exist

As the world has evolved and changed, modern humans have become used to being the largest creatures around. Except for the odd cow, horse, or elephant at the zoo, most of us have never seen truly giant beasts. We know what you’re thinking: whales are the largest mammal, right? Yes, that’s true, but what about giant bugs? Enormous sea creatures? What are the largest animals you can think of? There are all sorts of real-life "monsters" you can run into on this planet. How about a moth with a wingspan bigger than your hand? Or a rodent that stands two feet tall and weighs 150 pounds? Would you be startled to realize that in Florida you could find a crab as big as a trash can just outside your door? Do you consider yourself an expert when it comes to animal facts, or just a casual observer? We've narrowed it down to the 50 most shockingly large animals. How many have you heard of before?
