The largest animal now inhabiting the earth is the Blue Whale. Blue whales grow to be about 80 feet (25 meters) long - over 10 times longer than Shaquille Oneal. They weigh about 120 tons - or more than the combined weight of 700 pro football players. Here is a website where you can learn more about whales, and click on a link with more information on blue whales, here: Whales at EnchantedLearning.com While blue whales are the largest animals on earth, you might also be interested in the largest animal on land...the African elephant!
