When we think of giant animals, the first creatures that come to mind are giraffes and elephants. And when we think of small animals, things like ants and roaches pop into our heads. But nature is full of surprises as well as an array of animals of different sizes you have to see to believe!
This Dog’s a Giant
This dog’s so huge that you almost want to ride it into battle or hug it. But can you imagine what would happen if it tried licking your face? It might swallow you whole.
How Big Can It Get?
Have you ever seen a frog this size? Well, we’re willing to bet that neither has the rest of the world. It’s so impressive, we can’t help but keep scrolling to check it out again and again.
Shorty Short Sugar Glider
This sugar glider is just a baby and can fit in the palm of a person’s hand. Interestingly enough, its curled tail is way longer than its body.
A Bat as Big as Dracula
Relax! It’s not Count Dracula in its bat-like state. This is a rare Megabat known as a golden-crowned flying fox. It’s considered one of the largest bats on the planet….and we can clearly see why.
The Cutest Baby Ghost Crab
You simply can’t feel crabby after seeing this baby Ghost Crab. It’s so tiny and transparent that it’s practically invisible in the palm of this person’s hand.
The 28-Pound Cat
Judging from its size, it looks like a cross between a regular cat and a bobcat. The 28-pound feline was a stray until a Colorado pet store owner decided to adopt him.
Beware the Giant Buffalo
You thought it would be fun to take a drive through the northern Great Plains. Then you ran into this enormous buffalo. You better hope it’s friendly or that your car insurance is up-to-date, though!
A Baby Koala That Could Fit in Your Hands
Sure, it’s all nice and cute as it gets comfy on the palms of a human’s hands. But those nails probably left some sweet marks on the person’s fingers.
Feeding the Colossal Seal
That’s one brave human for feeding a seal that’s twice her size. And it’s so cute the way it’s holding the bucket while she struggles to get the fish into its mouth.
This Kitten’s Lethally Adorable
Meet the most adorable little kitty sitting in the palm of this man’s hand. It looks like a black furball with eyes. But if you stare into this adorable abyss long enough, it will own your soul forever.
The World’s Largest Wombat
His name was Patrick. And just because he was huge, it didn’t mean that he didn’t enjoy being held like a baby. Sadly, he passed away in 2017. So technically, it’s no longer the largest wombat.
A Mini Bug’s Bunny
Someone found this baby jackalope and fortunately took it to a vet. It’s soft and has a patch of white fur on its head that indicates it’s not weaned yet. The world needs more adorable creatures like this one. They’re just simply unbelievable.
The Largest Parrot is a Hugger
Not everything that’s big is necessarily dangerous. Just ask this Hyacinth Macaw, which is the world’s largest parrot species. Its size might be intimidating, but it also loves hugs and cuddles.
This cute sea turtle must be screaming, “Weeeeee!” But all joking aside. Don’t ever touch a baby turtle. Otherwise, the oil from your skin will prevent them from imprinting on the sand, which makes it difficult for them to return and reproduce.
