Everyone expects elephants to be pretty massive, but did you know there are tons of animals out there that are enormous? Have you ever seen a giant bunny, for instance? Check out the images below to see some of the most surprisingly large creatures out there.
1. Japanese Spider Crab
Nicknamed Crabzilla, this huge crab is more than 10 feet across and 40 years old. He’s still growing, too! He could eventually reach a span of 15 feet.
2. Giant Weta
Giant wetas are larger than any other species of insect that currently inhabit the planet. This especially giant one was found on Little Barrier Island in New Zealand.
3. Percheron Draft Horse
Aptly named Moose, this giant horse is a Percheron, which are well-muscled horses who have a reputation as hardworking and intelligent.
4. Hercules Moth
The Hercules moth has a wingspan of nearly 11 inches and is the largest moth in Australia.
5. Bismarck Flying Fox
Despite its name, the Bismarck Flying Fox is actually the world’s largest bat. They weigh up to three pounds and roost in large groups of hundreds or thousands.
Darius is officially the world’s biggest rabbit, after getting an official weigh-in by the people at Guinness World Records. The 49-pound bunny costs a whopping $4,000 to feed each year to maintain his strapping weight.
7. Giant Oarfish
This huge fish was found off the coast of southern California. It took 16 people to bring the lifeless, 18-foot fish to shore.
8. The Big Pig
This pig weighed in at 1,984 pounds and measured over eight feet long and seven feet around the waist. Sadly, it wasn’t enough for the world record, though; that place is still held by “Big Bill,” who died in 1933 and weighed 2,551 pounds!
