Biggest Animals in the World – I


Biggest Freshwater Fish Ever Caught
The official world record for the biggest freshwater fish ever caught is the Giant Mekong catfish. This huge catfish was caught in Thailand in May  2005 and is measures in at 9 feet (2.7 m) long, weighed 646 lbs (293 kg), and is 5 times bigger than the ‘world record’ catfish caught in North America.

Worlds Largest Rabbit
Try pulling a rabbit as large as this out of a hat. This gigantic rabbit weighs 17 lbs (7.7 kg), has ears measuring at 8.2 in (21 cm), and is almost 3.2 feet (1 m) tall. Herman could easily be the worlds biggest rabbit, but Guinness World Records have stopped accepting entries because of fears people were over-feeding their pets.

Largest Wildcat in the World
The largest wild cat in the world is a liger, also known as a hybrid cross between a male lion and a female tiger. Similar to the English Mastiff, this huge liger is also named Hercules and is recognized by the Guiness Book of World Records as the largest cat on Earth, weighing in at 900 lbs (408 kg).

Biggest Stingray Ever Caught
It took 13 men and 90 minutes to heave this giant out of the water. This  giant stingray weighed 55 tonnes (55,000 kg), measures in at 7 feet (2.1 m) wide, and has a tail of 10 ft (3 m) long.
