For decades, we were taught that the dinosaurs were the largest animals to ever roam the Earth. But thanks to research and archaeology, scientists have discovered the fossils of animals who were just as big. It seems that as time progressed, animals got smaller. The Earth is believed to be over 4.5 billion years old, and dinosaurs only came into the picture about 235 million years ago and remained here until they went extinct 65 million years ago. Between the extinction of the dinosaurs to today, quite a bit of time has passed, leaving Mother Nature to get creative with evolution. Could you imagine walking alongside a giant penguin that was nearly the same height as you? If you’re weary of rodents, then you wouldn’t have liked the giant rodents that once existed. Also, if you think getting eaten by a snake is far-fetched, there once used to be massive snakes that roamed the Earth. If you value your time at the beach, then maybe you shouldn’t learn about megalodon, who could have swallowed you whole. Woops, too late!

In this video, we’ll tell you about the biggest animals to have ever roamed the Earth. Some of the animals that we know and love today have massive ancestors, like the Sea Scorpion If you think that elephants couldn’t get any bigger, then you’ll want to take a peek at the palaeoloxodon namadicus. If you’ve seen the video of that guy picking a fight with a kangaroo, we wonder how he would have fared with a 1,000 pound prehistoric kangaroo. Finally, if you want a dose of something massively big, look no further than the ocean for the blue whale.

Top 5 BIGGEST Animal Mysteries EVER

The Top 5 Biggest Gigantic Animal Mysteries in the world / earth include a modern day Kraken bigger than the colossal squid, the biggest snake ever at an estimated 200 ft., a possible Megalodon, a massive dinosaur like lizard known as the Megalania that roams Australia, and more.


5) The USS Stein Monster

It was 1976 and the USS Stein headed into port after it's SONAR system had experienced failure. Upon closer inspection at the port, the special rubber protective coating of the ship's SONAR dome had cuts as long as 4 feet across. Within many of those cuts, the remains of sharp, curved claws were found - the type of claws associated with giant squid attacks.

However, these claw marks, measuring at around 4 feet across were much, much larger than any known squid previously discovered. Due to the size of these marks, it was speculated that whatever had done this damage could measure up to 150ft in length.

4) The Bloop

In 1997, multiple underwater microphones known as hydrophones picked up an extremely loud sound across a range of over 3000 miles. The sound was given the name The Bloop. The audio profile of the sound does resemble that of a living creature, except for the fact that it was many times louder than that of the loudest known creature, the blue whale....leaving the possibility open that a creature could exist much larger or at the very least louder than the blue whale. Others hypothesize that the sound was actually caused by a large icequake in Antartica...but the true source remains unknown.

However, it was hypothesized that the sound was actually a large icequake in Antartica, which also tend to share similar audio profiles to that of the Bloop noise. However, due to the ambiguity of it matching certain traits of both animal and icequake audio profiles, the true source of the Bloop noise remains unknown.

3) Mystery Animal that Ate a 9-foot Great White Shark

In Australia, scientists had tagged a particular 9 foot great white shark with a tracking device as part of a program to learn more about these beasts. After a few months, the scientists discovered their tracking device had washed ashore. Something had killed and eaten the great white shark.

The tracking device's data revealed a sudden rise in temperature which would indicate it was in something's digestive track coupled with a sudden 2000 foot dive into some of the deepest depths of the ocean....the device, or whatever creature it was in would then ascend and descend these great depths over the next few days until the device had been excreted.

What predator lies in the deep and eats great white sharks with such ferocity?

2) The Megalania

The Megalania is a massive lizard thought to have gone extinct some 30,000 years ago. It's like the much, much bigger brother to the giant Komodo dragon of today's time - imagine a lizard the size of a school bus...and maybe even bigger.

Interestingly, quite a bit of evidence suggests that they still exist. There's numerous anecdotal reports of sightings of the beast...watch the linked video to learn more about them....and then there's evidence a researcher named Rex Gordon has collected. He's collected and plastered nearly 30 footprints that match the beast exactly. Add this to the fact that some recent Megalania bones have been dated to be only 300 years old and there's a good chance there really may be a giant lizard roaming the Australian outback.

1) Colonel Remy Van Lierd's Giant Snake Photo

During World War Two, a very high ranking Belgian fighter pilot and squadron leader named Remy Van Lierd
was on his way back to base from a helicopter mission in the Congo. During his journey back, he was astounded to see an enormous snake winding around on the ground below. He instructed his crew to circle around so as to get a better look at the snake and take some photos...that's when the snake reared back as though it were about to attack the helicopter. Colonel Lierd guessed the snake had to be a minimum of at least 50 feet in length. After several reports like this by others, Lierd's pictures were sent to the CIA headquarters where they were analyzed. It was estimated the snake could have been up to 200 feet long....compare this to the longest snake on record which is around 34 feet in length.

► Adventure Ocean Quest - The Giants of Rurutu (FULL Documentary)

Humpback whales are amongst the biggest known mammals on Earth, weighing in at around 36.000kg, but by the early 1960s, after 34 million years on this planet, these gentle, majestic giants had been hunted almost to extinction. With their populations now in partial recovery, it is once again possible to find humpback whales around Rurutu in Polynesian waters. They congregate here between July and November to give birth to a new generation, and to mate. The newborns are prepared for a life of migration, covering thousands of kilometres every single year.

Dr Michael Poole, Director of the Marine Mammal Research Program at Moorea in French Polynesia and Dr. Cecile Gaspar are trying to establish a comprehensive photographic cataloguing system of the whales that should enable close monitoring of this fragile population. Until now, the identification of individuals has been restricted to working from above water and identifying the whales according to the markings on their tail fins.

Identifying whales from the water surface is extremely limiting: not only is it reliant on the whales lifting their fins clearly visible out of the water, but it also only supplies partial information. Skin patterns on heads and undersides, as well as the whales’ sex, age and behaviour can only be recorded below the water surface. A ban on scuba-diving is partly responsible for the current researchers’ approach, as well as the fact that the whales can be highly intolerant of divers in the water.

Frederic’s fotos and recordings of individual whales’ behaviour and physical characteristics allow Dr Cecile Gaspar to form a more accurate assessment of the humpback whale population around Rurutu, their movements and interactions. How big is it, and do individuals return every season or is there a change in the population’s make-up from one year to the next?

The overriding question is if the whales in this area are particularly threatened as a result of being an isolated population, or if they are able to recover from the loss of individuals when new whales join their groups. Finding answers to these questions would have a ground-breaking impact on the way these whales are protected from over-exploitation by humans.

Dr Poole calls Fred to Moorea island to see if the whales behave differently around a freediver like Frederic, who dives without the aid of oxygen tanks or rebreathers and moves like a fish. These whales are so shy, that Dr Poole expects their behaviour not to change noticeably around a noiselss diver like Frederic – they won’t see him as an unwanted intruder.

To gain the whales’ trust and be able to approach them intimately, Frederic has to stay with them underwater for as long as possible in depths of up to 50 metres. This takes an incredible amount of skill and stamina even for an extremely experienced freediver like Frederic, not to mention the risk of staying underwater at such depth for long periods of time.

Christian has to follow him with added sensitivity, both to avoid spooking the whales, and to follow Frederic’s lead at all times. But before they can dive, the team has to find some humpback whales in the first place … which can be extremely difficult. Local fishermen are a very important help for the researchers: they keep a lookout for humpback whales during their outings and report their findings to Fred, Christian and the team. They also add to the palette of information gained by the scientists’ observations by adding their own accounts of whale encounters.

It is likely that the whales will tolerate Frederic in their midst, allowing him to succeed where a conventional diver would most likely have failed. Frederic’s aim is to approach the whales up to arm’s length, take extreme close-up images for the researchers’ whale catalogue, and take notes on their behaviours.

But the strains of the long, deep dives take their toll – they are extremely exhausting and therefore dangerous. Christian and Dr Poole have to be careful and ensure that Frederic isn’t pushing himself too hard. The freediver is not one for giving up, but as impressive as this determination to succeed is, it can also be deadly.

Equiped with a hydrophone Frederic records the whales’ communications. This adds a further facet to the whale catalogue the researchers are piecing together, and provide a further insight into individual whales behaviour and identity. Remarkably, the whales don’t have vocal cords and produce the songs by forcing air through their massive nasal cavities. Not only that - there is evidence that their communications reach phenomenal distances of several hundred miles.

Frederic’s involvement in Dr. Poole’s and Dr. Gaspar´s humpback whale research project, and Christian’s ability to record Frederic’s work underwater, finally allow a thorough assessment of the humpback whale population around Rurutu and give a vital indication of just how healthy and robust this population is.

Top 10 Biggest Sea Animals of All Time

How Whales Became the Biggest Animals on the Planet

Whales are big. Really big. Enormously big. Tremendously big.

Fin whales can be 140,000 pounds. Bowhead whales tip the scales at 200,000 pounds. And the big mama of them all, the blue whale, can reach a whopping 380,000 pounds — making it the largest animal to have ever lived.

But for as long as whales have awed us with their great size, people have wondered how they became so colossal.

In a study published Tuesday in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, a team of researchers investigated gigantism in baleen whales, the filter-feeding leviathans that include blue whales, bowhead whales and fin whales. The marine mammals became jumbo-size relatively recently, they found, only within the past 4.5 million years. The cause? A climatic change that allowed the behemoths to binge-eat.

Whales have an interesting evolutionary history. They began as land-dwelling, hoofed mammals some 50 million years ago. Over several millions of years they developed fins and became marine creatures. Between about 20 million and 30 million years ago, some of these ancient whales developed the ability to filter-feed, which meant they could swallow swarms of tiny prey in a single gargantuan gulp. But even with this feeding ability, whales remained only moderately large for millions of years.

“But then all of a sudden — ‘boom’ — we see them get very big, like blue whales,” said Nick Pyenson, the curator of fossil marine mammals at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History and an author of the paper. “It’s like going from whales the size of minivans to longer than two school buses.”

Dr. Pyenson and his colleagues measured more than 140 museum specimens of fossilized whales, and then plugged that data into a statistical model. It showed that several distinct lineages of baleen whales became giants around the same time, independently of one another. Starting around 4.5 million years ago, giant blue whales were popping up in oceans across the world alongside giant bowhead whales and giant fin whales.

The researchers suspected that an environmental change happened during that time that essentially caused the baleen whales to bulk up. After some investigation, they found that this time period coincided with the early beginnings of when ice sheets increasingly covered the Northern Hemisphere.

Killer Whale Attack ( Documentary )

The killer whale or orca (Orcinus orca) is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family, of which it is the largest member. Killer whales are found in all oceans, from Arctic and Antarctic regions to tropical seas. Killer whales have a diverse diet, although individual populations often specialize in particular types of prey. Some feed exclusively on fish, while others hunt marine mammals such as seals and dolphins. They have been known to attack baleen whale calves, and even adult whales. Killer whales are apex predators, as there is no animal which preys on them.

Blue whales off Dana Point yesterday. Amazing to see the largest mammals on the planet up close.
