BIGGEST Sea Creatures Around The World!

Check out the biggest sea creatures around the world! This top 10 list of largest ocean animals on earth features some crazy monsters lurking in the deep sea!

10.) Fin Whale
The fin whale is the second largest creature on Earth after the blue whale. It has been severely affected by commercial whaling and now it is rare to see one. If you have seen one, consider yourself lucky! They can grow as long as 89 feet (27 m) in length and can weigh between 40 to 80 tons! The maximum ever recorded weighed in at 114 tons!! They can live to be over 100 years old if left alone.
The fin whale’s body is built for speed and it can even go faster than the fastest ocean steamship. It’s capable of speeds of up to 37 km/h but can go short bursts of even 47 km/h, earning it the nickname “greyhound of the sea”.
Fin Whales have a very unique coloring with the right underside of their jaw, right lip, and the right side of their baleen being a yellowish-white, while the left-side is gray, making them look asymmetrical. Fun fact, fin whales and blue whales make the lowest frequency sounds of any animals. When they were first recorded by submarines, scientists thought they were tectonic plates grinding. Kind of makes you wonder about what is causing other mysterious ocean sounds!

9.) Portuguese Man of War
While this is often considered a jellyfish, the Portuguese man-of-war is actually not an “it” but a “they”! It is made up of a colony of organisms called polyps that work together known as a siphonophore. While the tentacles can extend 165 feet (50 m), the average is about 30 feet (9 m) long. Still nothing to scoff at!!
Also known as “the floating terror”, their body is between 5 inches to a foot wide (13 cm- 130 cm). They are usually found in groups of about a thousand or more, and have no independent means of movement. They either drift on the currents or catch the wind, so even though you should be super careful of jellyfish, they aren’t ever out to get you on purpose! The tentacles on a man-of-war are extremely venomous and very painful if you get stung but they are rarely deadly. The venom is typically used to paralyze their prey, such as small fish and other smaller creatures. Also keep in mind that a man-of-war does not need to be alive in order to give off a powerful sting, even if it has washed up on shore and looks dead, it can still sting you! The Portuguese man-of-war floats around the Atlantic Ocean, as well as the Indian and Pacific. So keep an eye out if you are swimming around these areas!

8.) Giant Clam
The giant clam is the largest living bivalve mollusk on earth. (Bivalve mollusks include clams, oysters, and mussels). Native to the warm waters of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, giant clams are capable of growing an average of 4 feet (1 m) in length and weighing close to 500 pounds (250 kg)! However, some species of clams have been known to grow as long as 6 feet. The large majority of a giant clam’s mass is in its shell, with the soft parts accounting for only approximately 10% of the weight. Giant clams are now endangered because they apparently are also quite delicious and have been hunted for centuries for its healthy protein.
The giant clam has one chance to find its perfect home because once it chooses its spot, it stays there for the rest of its life. They can live up to 100 years or more, as long as they are in the wild. Most of the giant clams you see today have been raised in captivity and are really popular in large aquariums. Giant clams achieve their enormous proportions by consuming the sugars and proteins produced by the billions of algae that live in their tissues. This symbiotic relationship protects the algae and they are responsible for the unique coloration. No two giant clams are alike!

7.) Great White Shark
According to National Geographic, great white sharks are the largest predatory fish in the world. They grow to an average of 15 feet (4.6 m) in length. However, there have been some who have grown to 20 feet (6 m) in length! In fact, the largest Great White Shark ever recorded in the wild was estimated to be 26 feet long, which is more than half the length of a basketball court. Combine this with a bunch of teeth, and this is why people get so scared. They are known to weigh up to 5,000 pounds (2268 kg). The heaviest Great White Shark ever recorded in the wild was estimated to weigh in at a whopping 7,328 pounds. .

Why Killer Whales Are APEX Predators!

Check out Why Killer Whales Are APEX Predators! This top 10 list of amazing animals that live in the oceans has some of the coolest facts you didn't know about orcas!

Watch our 10 Sea Monsters ATTACKING A Boat! video here:
Watch our STRANGEST Animals People Keep As Pets! video here:

7. Why is the Killer Whale called an Orca?
Both of the names come from the fear that this animal has instilled into our human hearts over the centuries. Their scientific name, Orcinus Orca, comes from the mythical Orcus. You may not have heard much about him but he was the Roman and the underworld, AND the punisher of broken promises. The genus Orcinus means “belonging to Orcus”.

6. Killer Whales Can’t Smell
The killer whale has very well-developed eyesight. The convex or spherical lens of marine mammals differs vastly from those of land mammals. A marine mammal's eyes compensate for the lack of refraction at the cornea interface by having a more powerful spherical lens. Killer whales also have a well-developed acute sense for hearing underwater, and they process sounds at a much higher speed than humans. They can hear each other from more than 10 miles away.

5. Hunting Strategies
Like I’ve said before Orcas are smart! They are highly social and hunt in coordinated packs. Their ingenuity and predatory intelligence is passed down from one generation to the next. Orcas will adapt their strategies according to their prey. They use echolocation to find their prey, sending out sonar clicks that bounce back to them and once they locate the target, it is ON!

4. Do they live up to their name?
Orcas aren’t whales themselves. They belong to the dolphin family (Delphinidae) and it is the largest of all dolphins. Whalers working off the coast of Australia claimed that Killer Whales would help them hunt other whales.

3. Killer whales have a unique dialect
Killer whales, just like all aquatic mammals, depend heavily on underwater sound for orientation, feeding, and communication. There are three different categories of music that killer whales produce: clicks, whistles, and pulsed calls. Clicks are commonly heard during social interactions but are also mainly used for navigating and locating prey and other possible obstacles in the surrounding environment.

2. Great White Shark vs Killer Whale
It’s very hard to imagine the terrifying great white shark as prey. In 2017, beachgoers were horrified to stumble across the carcasses of Great White sharks washed up on the beaches in South Africa. These bodies ranged in size, from as small as nine feet to as big as sixteen feet, but they all had large sets of puncture marks behind their pectoral fins. What was eating the apex predator of the sea??

1. Orcas and Humans
While so far their behavior may seem intimidating and violent, it is important to note that many Native American tribes respected the killer whale and believed they were a special protector of humankind. Killer whales were symbolic animals representative of mightiness and vigor, qualities aspired to by warriors. They were referred to as the “lords of the ocean” and would protect the waters with the help of dolphins.

How Whales Became The Largest Animals Ever

Whales are the largest living animals that have ever existed on this Earth. A blue whale can grow to a whopping 110 feet in length, outweighing even the dinosaurs. But curiously their story begins from rather humble beginnings. Here is the story of how whales became the giants of the sea.

Following is a transcript of the video:

Whales are the largest animals to ever exist on this Earth, outweighing even the dinosaurs. These titans roam the oceans in search of food, but that wasn't always the case. Millions of years ago they used to be land dwellers. Here is how whales ended up becoming the biggest of them all.  Following is a transcript of the video.

Whales are the biggest animals of all time. Heavier than elephants, wooly mammoths, and even dinosaurs!

But they weren’t always the titans of the sea. Let’s rewind the clock around 50 million years. No, you won’t find any whales here. You have to go ashore. Meet Pakicetus. The very first whale.

Life on Earth spent millions of years clawing its way out of the oceans. But whales took all that effort and threw it out the window. From 50 to 40 million years ago they traded in their four legs for flippers. In fact, some whales today still have leftover bones of hind legs!

Once submerged, their weight under gravity no longer mattered so they could theoretically grow to enormous proportions. And they did. Today, a blue whale is 10 THOUSAND times more massive than the Pakicetus was.

But this transformation wasn’t as gradual as you might think. In fact, over the next 37 million years or so whales grew increasingly diverse but their size remained small. And were only 18 feet long. Making them easy prey for predators, like giant sharks.

It wasn’t until around 3 million years ago that an ice age tipped the scales in the whales’ favor. Ocean temperatures and currents shifted sparking concentrated swarms of plankton and plankton-seeking krill. It was an all-you-can-eat buffet for the baleen whales, who grew larger as a result. And the larger they became, the farther they could travel in search of more food to grow even more. You can probably see where this is going.

3 million years later, humpbacks, for example, have one of the longest migrations of any mammal on Earth, traveling over 5,000 miles each year. As a result, modern whales are the largest they’ve ever been in history.

Take the biggest of the bunch the blue whale. It weighs more than a Boeing 757. Has a belly button the size of a plate. And its network of blood vessels, if you laid them out in a line, could stretch from Pluto to the sun and back over two and a half times!

In fact, the largest blue whales are so huge that scientists think they may have hit a physical limit. When they open their wide mouths to feed they engulf enough water to fill a large living room. So it can take as long as 10 seconds to close them again.

Scientists estimate once a whale is 110 feet long it can’t close its mouth fast enough before prey escapes. So it’s possible we’re living amongst the largest animal that will ever exist. Lucky for us, they mostly just eat krill.

This was made in large part thanks to Nick Pyenson and the information in his new book, “Spying on Whales.”

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.

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.
