12 Of The World’s Most Massive Animals

In America, we love everything that’s big. Whether it be our trucks, our land, our drinks, or our burgers, there’s one slogan that we like to live by: Bigger is better.

And it’s no different when it comes to the animal world. Whether it be a 300-pound snake, a 2-pound goldfish, or a pig that weighs as much as a truck, we’re impressed by the biggest and best!

Take a look at some of the biggest animals below. Most of them have been confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records to be the absolute biggest of the big among their species.


1. At 7'4" tall when standing on his hind legs, and 3'8" when on all fours, Zeus holds the record for tallest dog ever.




2. Trouble, the world's largest domestic cat, was 19" tall from shoulder to paw.
  




3. 13-year-old Blossom is the world's tallest cow, standing at 6'4".




4. Big Jake, the world's tallest horse, weighs about 2,600 pounds and is an incredible 6'11" tall! That's 20 hands!
