Gigantic things exist!
The hypergiant star UY Scuti is 1,700 times the size of the sun, which itself is about 109 times the size of Earth!
Even enormous versions of small things exist. Even Mario turns into a giant after eating the Mega Mushroom!
Big isn’t always better, but big certainly can be beautiful!
Anyway, here are 35 of the largest things of their kind found across the globe. Have you ever been in the same water as a giant saltwater crocodile?
1. Giant pelican?
What are we looking at here, a giant pelican? Actually, Quetzalcoatlus northropi is known as the largest flying organism to have ever existed! Check out the human for scale! I guess Canadian geese aren’t all that bad…
2. Horse lungs
Needless to say, horses have humungous lungs! Here they are at full mast… These lungs really put their size into perspective! In the grand scheme of things, humans are so small.
3. Patrick the wombat
Patrick the wombat passed away a few years ago. He was adopted after a tragic accident befell his mother and left him orphaned. But he grew into a fine wombat. His new family fed him very handsomely.
The Allure of the Seas makes the Titanic look tiny. The former is actually five times larger by volume! With that said, nothing tops the popularity of the Titanic. What a legendary ship!
5. Blue whale heart
Blue whales are pretty damn big. In fact, they’re the largest organisms on the planets! Many believe they very well could also be the largest organisms ever to exist. Their hearts are literally larger than humans!
6. Eagle talons
Do the eagles have large talons? Have you seen Napoleon Dynamite? But seriously, that’s actually teriffying. Those claws can do some serious damage.
7. Inside the sun
How many Earths can fill up a single sun? This should give you a great visual representation. That’s a ton of blue beads… how many Earths is that?
8. Giant African land snail
Have you ever seen a giant African land snail? Yeah, me neither. That’s one big gastropod! It looks like an adorable alien.
So how much is one billion? Well it’s a 1000 millions… or a million thousands. Can you fathom one billion? Maybe Paul can help.
10. Sea turtle
Loggerhead and leatherback turtles are notorious for nesting along the coast of Florida. Some of them get humungous! She might be standing too close… That’s a goregous turtle!
11. Truck vs. bus
Some industrial vehicles are behemoths. Check out the bus for comparison! That vehicle could probably withstand a mudslide. Watch out for falling rocks!
12. Highway sign
Anybody family with the United States interstate system has seen one of these massive signs. Turns out, they actually are bigger than we thought! I wonder how much that thing weighs? The humans in the photo really put things into perspective.
13. Saltwater crocodile
Gators and crocs can get huge. Check out the human for reference! Wow, that’s one insanely large crocodile. I’d be a little nervous if I was in that water.
Moose are bigger than most think. Just look at those antlers! Would you be scared if you saw this in the parking lot? Stay calm!
Whales are among the most majestic creatures on the planet. They’re intelligent and awesome. I’m not sure if it wants a fist bump or a handshake. Either would be nice!
Coyotes get a bad rap in American culture. Wolves, on the otherhand, are revered for a variety of reasons. The size difference between a wolf and coyote is stark. The alpha’s on the hunt…
17. Boar vs. wolf skull
Ever wonder about the anatomical differences between a wolf and a boar? Boars are a lot bigger than they lead on… That’s a massive skull! Obviously, never challenge a boar or a wolf!
There are some heavy duty industrial items out there. Check out this underground cable. That’s quite the girth! If the unit was live, he’d probably be dead!
The “dark side of the moon” compares relatively well to the United States. Now, obviously there’s a lot more moon around its sphere, but this really puts things into perspective! This is fitting, considering the United States also put the first person on the moon!
20. Wads of cash
Have you ever wondered what stacks of Washingtons look like next to their bigger-billed equivalents? Either way, it’s a lot of money. The giant stacks of cash look so much more satifsying. But ya gotta go with the efficient, larger bills.
Bears are big. Bear claws are huge! Even the largest hands look tiny next to these mitts. They look like props in a horror film…
The so called “Great Manta” of 1933 is on full brutal display. What a barbaric photo… Needless to say, that’s a damn big manta ray!
What would happen to the world if a giant meteorite hit? Well, here’s what a sizable meteorite looks like next to Los Angeles. Los Angeles isn’t exactly a small city… Space is full of humungous rocks.
Yao Ming was a fantastic center in the NBA before injuries plagued his career, essentially forcing retirement. Here he is with Lauri Markkanen, a star player for the Chicago Bulls. Yao Ming is 7’6″. He’s almost half a foot taller than Shaq!
25. Wind turbine
Some wind turbines are effin’ huge. Here’s a blade with a human for scale! Look at the turbines in the background. This really puts things into perspective!
What is this, exactly? Well, it’s none other than the revered Great Pyramid of Giza. I wonder what it looked like right after it was made? It’s been a few years.
27. Gorilla hands
Gorillas are big, but I never knew they were that big. Just look at those fingers! If someone accuses you of having “gorilla hands,” you might have some oversized mitts! I wonder how dangerous it’d be to give a gorilla a high five…
28. Big tree
Meet General Sherman, the largest tree in the entire world! You can actually go see it in California. I’d love to see an aerial view, too. I wonder how old General Sherman is?
29. The one ring to rule them all
Have you seen The Lord of the Rings? Well, this is the one ring to rule them all! A little bigger than imagined, right? I wonder how Sauron was able to carry this around all day. Evil always finds a way…
So apparently some stoplights are ginormous. I mean, it’s almost as big as she is! They need to hurry up and reinstall the light so traffic doesn’t turn into mayhem. That’s one strong pole, too!
David may be the most famous sculpture in existence. He’s an absolute unit. Michelangelo’s David is truly larger than life! Unless you see him in person, it’s easy to underestimate his size.
32. The door
What are your thoughts on giant doors? Necessary? Definitely not. Ridiculous? Sure. Super cool? Absolutely. These doors belong to the National Archives in Washington, D.C.
Clydesdales are arguably the most majestic horses in existence. They’re absolutely goregous… and they make humans look tiny! They’re also featured in tons of Budweiser commercials.

Have you ever wondered what creeps and crawls along the ocean floor? This is the stuff of nightmares! His face says it all. Meet the Japanese spider crab!
35. Anchor chains
Anchors are pretty useful when you’re out at sea. They have to be strong and long to be effective. Here’s a telling example of a ship anchor… These anchor chains make those humans look small!
