About Huge Animals
More Huge Animals
In addition to Animals that are naturally big, sometimes animals get even bigger than normal. It can happen for many different reasons - sometimes it's becuase they have a medical condition and sometimes it's because they are fed too much! But as long as they are happy and healthy, they are super interesting and a lot of fun to look at. Here are some amazingly big animals for you to check out!
The Worlds Tallest Horse
Radar, a Belgian draught horse, is the World’s Tallest Living Horse. This huge horse, at 6ft 71/2in from hoof to shoulder, is from Texas. At 2,400lb, he has a giant appetite to match, putting away 20 gallons of water a day and 18 pounds of grain!
Worlds Biggest Cow
As big as a small elephant, Big Chow Chili is described as a sweet and gentle giant. Chilli the giant bullock stands at 6 1/2 feet tall and weighs well over a ton. Despite his grand stature, Chilli only grazes on grass during the day and enjoys the occasional sweet as a treat.
World's Biggest Pig
Will the Guinness Book of Records recognise a 1,984 pounds pig as the biggest pig ever? I'm kinda betting that they do. He lives in China and has a special pig-pen built just for him.
The World's Tallest Dog
The tallest dog according to the Guinness World Records is Gibson, a Harlequin Great Dane, who is 42.2 inches. The 170-pound Dane is more than 7 feet tall, taller than most NBA basketball players.
World's Biggest Cat
Jungle Island in Miami, Florida is home to a liger (a hybrid cross between a male lion and a female tiger) named Hercules, the largest non-obese liger. The liger is recognized by the Guiness Book of World Records as the largest cat on Earth, weighing in at 900 lbs!
