This is the world’s largest amphibian. It’s called the Chinese giant salamander. It can grow to nearly six feet long and weigh over 140 pounds. Researchers have found that there is not one, but at least five species of Chinese giant salamander, and possibly up to eight. However, these amphibians are threatened by humans. In the wild, they are poached and sold as a luxury food. Some researchers believe that some of these newly identified species are already extinct. Experts say conservation strategies—starting with education—will need to be updated to save this amphibian.

16 BIGGEST Animals of All Time

From giant, scary jellyfish to abnormally large bears…and fish..these are the 16 BIGGEST Animals of All Time.

This terrifying spider crab is the largest living arthropod on Earth. It can weigh up to 10 pounds and grow up to 3 and a half feet in length. These crabs aren’t just all size and show, they’re also extremely powerful. Their claws are capable of crushing a coconut in half, so if you see one, it’s best to run as fast as you can the other direction.

The Indian Bison, also known as the Gaur, are a species of wild cow native to South and Southeast Asia. They are the largest wild cows on Earth, with an average weight of 2,000 pounds and an average of 11 feet in length. In areas where Gaur co-exist with humans, it is a common occurrence for them to walk through crop fields and gardens to graze on the vegetation. Their massive body weights and terrifying horns are enough for humans and animals alike to clear the way and let them do whatever they want until they leave.

One of the largest land mammals on Earth, hippos spend half their time submerged in water and the other half of their time being terrifying. These uncanny mammals are one of the top biggest mammals on Earth. A common Hippo can weigh up to 7,000 lbs or 3.5 US tons! Hippos may seem cute, but they have extremely powerful jaws, and are extremely territorial. They will attack anything that encroaches on their personal space. A Hippo can sprint at 35 miles per hour, making them not only one of the biggest mammals on earth, but one of the most dangerous.

Capybara are the largest rodents in the world. Despite their uncanny size and appearance, capybara are notoriously friendly and social. The supersized hamsters are on average 3 feet tall and 5 feet in length. They not only hang out in large packs of their own species, but can be seen intermingling peacefully with other animals. Their friends include: monkeys, house cats, dogs, turtles, birds of all kinds, and even humans.

Sunfish, also called Mola, are the heaviest bony fish in the oceans. The strange bullet shaped fish are world renowned for their strange shapes and giant bodies. The average size of a sunfish is about 11 feet (3.3 meters) and around 3,000 pounds but the heaviest sunfish recorded was nearly 5,000 pounds. The biggest mola ever discovered was found by divers, and it measured 14 feet, dwarfing the divers in size as it swam past. Although Sunfish can lay broods of 300 million eggs, encountering one is rare as they spend most of their lives adrift in the open ocean.

Lion’s Mane Jellyfish is an incredibly large species of jellyfish. They can grow up to 120 feet in length which is longer than the biggest recorded Blue Whale length of 108 feet. They are about 7 feet in diameter and have 8 sets of tentacles that total to 1200 total. They’re long masses of tentacles ensnare tiny organisms like fish and other jellyfish for it to eat. These organisms are so long, a single Lion’s Mane was found to be the culprit of stinging 50 plus people at the same time at a beach in England.
