Prominent Pets

Colossal Squid

Mammoth Mammals

British Giant Rabbits (Breed’s website)

Biggest Horse: An Australian shire horse named Noddy weighs 1300kg and is still growing!

Royal Reptile: Galapagos Giant Tortoise

Remarkable Rodents

Capybara are the largest rodents in the world.  Adults can grow over 4 feet tall!

Nutria weigh about 20 pounds and have orange teeth.  Although valued for its fur, its invasive feeding habits have spurred programs to control the population of the animal.

Creepy Crawlers

The Goliath Tarantula is the largest spider on Earth.

 

The Goliath Beetle is the biggest insect on Earth.  They can grow to 4.5 inches, and sound like a toy helicopter when flying.

Giant Centipede: this centipede is shown attacking an eating a bat.

 Coconut Crab: also referred to as Garbage Crabs, this crab is huge and is named for its ability to pierce coconuts with its claws.

    Those coconut crabs are delicious. The meat is extra sweet due to the coconut oil they consume. Seek them if you travel to the south pacific.

    Japanese spider crab is bigger than the coconut crab and the giant huntsman spider has a larger legspan than the goliath bird eater. Also im not sure if a moth is an insect but I know theres moths bigger than the goliath beetle. An animal that would look cool on this list though is the alphabet (cant remember its first name) unicolor harvestman. Its awesome and dosnt have enough popularity look it up its cool.
