this type of ultimate fact

goliath bird eater this is a bit

creepy because when we usually think of

spiders what usually comes to mind are

tiny diminutive eight-legged creatures

with beady eyes which produce

spectacular webs

and generally spiders consume flies and

then are eaten by lizards and birds

now we introduce a freak of nature

living in the amazonian jungle which is

a shockingly large creature

this particular spider called the

goliath bird eater is in fact

a tarantula and while most people are

not arachnophobic

i am pretty sure they will be

tarantulophobic

living in the south american rainforests

it could weigh up to an

unbelievable 6 ounces or 175 grams

despite its designation as a bird eater

it doesn't actually feed on birds but

snakes

rodents and toads are all within its

purview

zeus zeus whose owners describe him as a

very gentle giant

clinch the record for the world's

tallest dog in the guinness book of

world records

when standing on his hind legs he

measured a whopping

seven feet four inches apparently his

owners denise and kevin durlag

residents of otsego michigan received a

lot of inquiries about whether or not

their pet was actually really a horse

he was actually a qualified therapy dog

weighing at a hefty 155 pounds

he usually sat on their laps

the african snail the african giant

snail with emphasis on the word

giant is expected to be huge this snail

at approximately eight inches long

is virtually the size of a fully grown

human hand

despite its name the snail is found in a

lot of places and is considered

a big pest problem around crops due to

its size it has a voracious appetite

it also has a rapid rate of reproduction

both of these factors rank it among the

world's top

10 invasive species

darius if seen from a distance you would

probably be excused if you took this

creature for a dog

though a very fat one and with a little

unusual coloring

and on coming a little closer you will

then see his ears and become

really baffled because this canine sized

fellow who weighs an astonishing

50 pounds and is 4 feet 4 inches tall

is none other than a bunny don't get too

surprised until you meet jeff

his son who although is not fully grown

is already

three feet eight inches tall the

father-son duo are members of a giant

rabbit species known as the continental

rabbits

whose members usually reach a height of

roughly four feet

the two cute giants go through 700

apples and 2

000 carrots every year in addition to a

bowl of rabbit food daily which all cost

annette

edwards their 63 year old loving owner

close to 5 000 pounds

every year

chinese salamander if the word

salamander calls to mind a small

reptilian lizard-like creature who lives

close to water bodies and is fairly icky

and slimy to deal with

then you would not be totally incorrect

in fact they are amphibians and not

reptiles and appear to be a cross

between a lizard and a frog

salamanders are usually about six inches

long with many being smaller than that

and the smallest of them being less than

an inch but with over 600 species there

has to be at least

one that is apparent meet the chinese

giant salamander which grows up to an

immense

six feet yeah there are lizards that

exist

in the world that could be taller than

your best friend or next door neighbor

ludo the main coons are a relatively

giant breed of domestic cats

having characteristic furry tails they

usually come in at 40 inches when

measured from nose to tail

ludo at 17 months already measured a

remarkable 45 inches and weighed 24.5

pounds

just considerably bigger than your

average cat also despite his

size he actually eats less than other

smaller felines

and though these temperate giants are

very friendly their size

often constitutes a deterrent to many

because you must be very brave to want a

pet a giant-sized cat

let's face it as cute and fluffy as he

looks having a cat's temperament means

he could turn on you

at any time

the goliath frog the giant frog or

goliath as it is called is not really

very scary

but having this monstrosity croak at you

when you least expect it just might give

you a mini heart attack

the biggest frog that most people have

ever encountered is about the size of a

fist

but this froggy giant is over a foot

long and once it extends its legs it's

even longer

their tadpoles are the same size as the

other normal species of frog

it's just that they keep on growing

bigger they are found in cameroon and in

other certain parts of africa also they

are not ideal parent role models because

once the eggs have been laid

the parents just up and disappear

big jake though horses are usually big

and most are taller than the average

human

big jake is sure to take the cake this

abnormally large animal measures an

official

six feet ten and three quarter inches

tall and weighs an

astonishing 2 600 pounds even at birth

he was a big fellow he weighed

approximately 240 pounds

almost 50 pounds above the average

weight of his breed

notwithstanding his huge dimensions he

is unexpectedly good with people and has

a lot of fans

he is owned by jerry gilbert and resides

in point

wisconsin at smokey hollow farm where he

is a hitchhorse

hercules think of cats and what comes to

mind are the cute

fluffy and domestic furballs as well as

the other

jungle wildcats such as tigers and lions

etc

the biggest of them all was previously

the siberian tiger

however there's still another wildcat

who surpasses this ferocious and

magnificent predator

the liger it is the progeny of a union

between a female tiger and a male lion

as opposed to the progeny of a male

tiger and a female lioness called a

tigon

hercules is also a very sociable animal

and is the world's largest surviving cat

measuring

over 11 feet and weighing a hefty 922

pounds

japanese spider crab crabs are usually

thought about in the same breath as an

exquisite

beachside dinner complimented with a

bottle of fine french wine

though this culinary fantasy will

evaporate when you're faced with the

japanese spider crab

a perversely large species weighing an

enormous

42 pounds and measuring an astonishing

18

feet this freak of nature is

particularly scary

but similar to most of the world's

largest animals this large and ferocious

looking spider crab has been reported to

possess a gentle personality

shockingly the japanese spider crab is

being hunted as food and is considered a

delicacy in many japanese regions

its population has greatly declined and

conservation efforts are being made to

protect the world's largest arthropod

blossom blossom was officially

recognized in the guinness book of world

records as the world's tallest cow

just before she passed on a holstein cow

weighs an average of 1

500 pounds but it came in at over 2000

pounds

and measured an amazing six feet four

inches

she was indeed the biggest of them all

when it was found out that blossom

couldn't give birth to cavs her owner

patty mead's hansen opted to keep her on

as a pet instead of sending her to be

slaughtered she later became the farm's

official greeter and quickly became

famous for her unique

size stingray

although it was a stingray that killed

steve irwin a famous wildlife tv

personality in a tragic incident

another wildlife tv personality and

conservationist jeff corwin

has the special distinction of catching

what is alleged to be the biggest

stingray of them all

it is also considered as the largest

freshwater fish

ever caught in the wild caught in

thailand at the meiklong river and

weighing over 800 pounds and measuring

14 by 8 feet this aquatic colossus took

corwin's team over two slow and

painstaking hours to reel in

medusa the guinness world records title

for the world's largest snake has been

conferred to madame medusa

a python living in kansas city missouri

when medusa was measured in 2011 she had

an astonishing length of 25

feet 2 inches taking 10 men to hold her

up so that she could be measured

her typical fortnightly dinner is a 40

pound

deer in 2016 there were reports of an

even lengthier snake

captured in malaysia which measured over

26 feet and weighed over

550 pounds unfortunately the snake died

within three hours of its capture

leaving medusa as the reigning queen

lelong so crocs are typically biggish

right

but lelong is in a class all its own

the immense size croc was caught in

september

2011 in the bunwin creek located in the

philippine province of agusan del sur

the daunting task was carried out by a

joint team comprised of local residents

units from the local government and

crocodile hunters from the palawan

wildlife reservation center

the crocodile was hunted over a

three-week period before he was

eventually caught

it took nearly a hundred people just to

drag him to land

and judging from his violent

protestations he certainly didn't want

to be captured

weighing an astonishing 2 370 pounds and

recorded at 20 feet

3 inches long this monstrosity of a croc

was alleged to be a man-eater

big bill owned by elias buford butler

big bill from jackson tennessee holds

the title of the world's largest pig

weighing in at a shocking and fifty 2552

pounds big bill was awarded the title

back in 1933 and was five feet tall and

nine feet long up till date no pig has

ever approached his gigantic

size there were reports of another hefty

pig who was just

five years old and weighed 1984 pounds

the pig died in february of 2009 from

health-related problems that began

because of his inability to move due to

his immense

size green anaconda

although a reticulated python can grow a

bit longer than a green anaconda

the 12 inches wider diameter of an

anaconda's body earns it the title of

world's

largest snake they grow more than 29

feet long and can weigh more than 550

pounds

especially when they eat wild pigs deer

and even jaguars

eastern gorilla eastern gorillas are

found in the lowlands and mountains of

africa

even with a diet of stems bamboo shoots

and fruits

male gorillas can weigh up to 440 pounds

this makes them the largest living

primates however

their population is drastically

decreasing in size

in the 1990s there were about 17 000

eastern lowland gorillas

scientists estimate that there is less

than 50 percent of that now

manta ray don't let manta ray's nine

meter long

two thousand pound body fool you unlike

stingrays that have tails that can hurt

you

manta rays can be extremely harmless

sometimes they just

jump out of the water scientists explain

this phenomenon with theories such as

the manta ray needing to remove

parasites from their body feeding

cording and communicating

jumping out of the water like that is

kind of a superpower of manta rays

capybara if you have a fear of rodents

your skin might

crawl looking at the world's largest

rodent capybaras can weigh anywhere from

60 to 174 pounds

with the females being a bit larger than

the males unlike the rats you may find

in the subway station

capybaras have webbed feet to help them

swim and don't have tails

there's nothing to fear because of how

harmless they look

blue whale this is the world's largest

existing animal and the heaviest animal

that ever existed

weighing in at around 210 short tons

and can grow up to 98 feet long blue

whales inhabit all

of the earth's oceans and almost

exclusively eat krill

they were heavily hunted almost to the

point of extinction

in fact until whale hunting was outlawed

in 1968 by the internal community

as a result they are now endangered
