Hello Lindsay,

The largest animal is probably the whale. Some marine biologists might argue that the giant squid might be larger. Botanists have found single large fungi living underground to be as large as 1.6 million square feet of area and weighs about 200,000 pounds. It lives in oak forests of Michigan.
