In addition to the extinct giant reptiles, the blue whale is the largest animal in the world that exists on Earth to this day.
The researchers said a crocodile species more than 12 meters long and weighs about 10 tons once existed during the Cretaceous, 65 million years ago in Africa. They determined their size to be 3 times larger and 10 times heavier than crocodiles that exist on earth.
Shantungosaurus is a herbivore that existed on Earth 70 million years ago. Zhao, an archaeologist, discovered the animal’s fossils in 2007 in Asia. He said they were nearly 17 meters high and weighed about 23 tons. According to the study, Shantungosaurus has about 1,500 teeth and their main food source is plants.
Mosasaur, the name of an underwater dinosaur, existed about 65 million years ago. According to the researchers, they are over 18 meters long and weigh about 20 tons, which is two to three times larger than an African elephant.
Titanoboa is the scientific name of a snake longer than 15 m and weighs about 1,135 kg. The researchers said the width of the solid body is about the same size as a large truck tire. They existed 60 million years ago, in muddy, muddy areas.
According to scientists, Maui Reptile is the most ferocious and the largest-headed sea reptile ever to exist on earth. They are over 20 m long and weigh about 8 tons. The main food source of this animal is meat, fish and some other marine animals.
In 1915, Ernst Stromer was the first scientist to find the Spinosaurus s, the world’s largest terrestrial predator that existed 112 million years ago. He said they were over 18 meters long, about 6 meters high and weighed 9 tons. The sail-shaped fin with a height of about 2 m is one of the advantages that helps them attract a mate.
Scientist Arthur Smith Woodward discovered the Leedsichthys fossils in 1889. It has a length of nearly 16 m and a weight of about 50 tons. The large tail allows it to move quickly and easily in many seas.
Scientists discovered the largest lizard ever lived on Mount Shoshone in the Americas in 1976. They determined they existed long before the dinosaurs began to grow. One researcher said their skulls were over 3 meters long with a height of over 21 meters and a weight of about 40 tons.
Scientist Rodolfo Coria discovered Argentinosaurus in 1993. He studied fossils 100 million years ago and identified the animal from 21 m to nearly 38 m high with a weight of 100 tons. Despite their large size, they are herbivores. In addition, they can eat large rocks to crush some indigestible plants in the stomach.
This blue whale has a scientific name is Balaenoptera musculus. The researchers claim that they are the largest animals that ever lived and are living on earth. Carl Linnaeus was the first to discover the largest blue whale with a length of more than 33 m, weighing 190 tons in 1758. They consume about 40 million mollusks per day. Experts say their lifespan can be up to 80 years.
