Top 10 Heaviest Animals in the world |Nature | Top 10 | Animals | Articles Hive


There are many animals in the world and they all have different sizes, shapes and weights. Some of these animals are very big while others are very small. In this article, we will discuss about some of the heaviest animals in the world that you may not have heard about before:

African Bush Elephant

The African Bush Elephant is the largest living elephant. It is an endangered species, with fewer than 40,000 remaining in its natural range.

The African bush elephant is one of three species of elephants found in Africa: the Asian elephant and the greater one-horned rhinoceros are also included in this group; however, these two species are not closely related to each other or to their larger relative. These animals can be distinguished by size alone: An adult male African bush has a shoulder height of 3 m (10 ft) while females measure 2–3 m (6–10 ft). Males weigh 6–9 tons while females weigh 4–5 tons on average.

Their length ranges from 5–7 meters (16–23 ft), depending upon subspecies; however their tail length averages at about 1 meter (39 inches). The ears measure about 45 centimeters long with some having longer ones reaching up to 80 centimeters! These large ears help these animals locate food sources which includes water holes as well as edible plants during dry season times when there aren't enough rains coming down around them!

✔ Giraffes

Giraffes are the tallest mammals in the world. They can reach up to 18 feet tall, but the average weight of an adult giraffe is 2,000 pounds. Their average lifespan is 25 years—far longer than humans!

Giraffes have long necks and legs that help them reach above their heads to feed on leaves and branches high up in trees. Their tongues help them get food from there as well (although they do not use them to lick themselves clean).

✔ Blue Whale

Blue whales are the largest animals on Earth and can weigh up to 190 tones. They grow up to 100 feet long, which is longer than any other mammal in existence today.

Blue whales live for up to 90 years, making them one of the longest lived mammals in existence.

✔ Hippopotamus

Hippopotamus is a genus of large, mostly herbivorous mammals in subfamily Hippopotaminae, which includes one extant species and several extinct species. The name comes from the Greek words hippos (ἱππός) meaning “horse” and potamos (ποταμός) meaning “river” or “watercourse”. The term hippopotamus means "river horse".

✔ Asian Elephants

Asian elephants are the largest living terrestrial animals, with an average weight of about 7,000 pounds. They are also one of the most widely distributed species on Earth; their range extends from India to Indonesia and Thailand to Malaysia. The Asian elephant's large size makes it an important part of many ecosystems in these regions.

The average height at maturity is around 9 feet tall (2 m) while females tend to be slightly smaller than males. In terms of lifespan, this species typically lives 60 years but can live up to 80 years or more in captivity if cared for properly by its handlers

✔ Cape Buffalo

Cape buffalo is a large African bovine. It's not a true buffalo, but rather an Africaans name for water buffalo. The cape buffalo is actually the second largest African bovine after the blue wildebeest and third largest land mammal in Africa. The cape buffalo is also considered to be one of the most dangerous animals on earth because it can weigh up to 2 tons (1 ton), which makes it an ideal prey for lions and other predators who would otherwise need to eat cows or goats instead!

✔ Rhinoceros

The rhinoceros is a member of the family of large mammals. It has two horns on his head, which are used in battle with other animals or protect themselves from predators. The female rhinoceros can give birth to one calf at a time, but the male needs to mate with several females to produce offspring.

The rhino's skin is thick and covered with hair that protects it from heat, cold and rain during hot weather conditions where it lives in Africa or Asia

✔ African Lion

The African lion is the biggest cat in the world. It has a weight up to 500 kg and lives in groups, which makes it one of the most dangerous predators on Earth. These lions are omnivores, meaning they will eat both plants and animals like other cats do. However, they prefer meat over anything else because they can't digest plants very well.

The African Lion isn't endangered though—in fact there are over 20 lions per square kilometer compared to only one cheetah per square kilometer! This means that you're much more likely to see an African Lion than a cheetah roaming around your backyard or city streets (although if you live near Africa then maybe this doesn't matter anymore).

✔ Brown Bear

Brown bears are the largest land predators in North America. They can weigh up to 1,600 pounds and grow to be about 7 feet long, with a shoulder height of about 3 feet. Brown bears are omnivorous and eat both plants and animals including fish, deer or elk meat as well as berries or nuts when available.

Brown bears are found throughout North America except for southern Alaska where they live mostly in remote areas like mountainsides or forests near lakeshores because they prefer open space over dense forested areas due to the danger these forests pose for human safety (especially hunters). In Europe there are two subspecies: Ursus arctos horribilis which lives in northern Scandinavia while Ursus arctos malmensis lives around Russia's White Sea region

✔ Polar Bear

The polar bear is a carnivorous bear that lives in the Arctic Circle. The polar bear can weigh up to 1,250 lbs and grow up to 7 feet long. It has white fur on its body with black patches around its head, neck, and chest. Its large size makes it one of the best-known carnivores on Earth because it's easy to see from space!

Polar bears have a life span of 20-30 years but most will only live about 20 years because they are preyed upon by other animals such as humans who hunt them for their meat or fur (which makes excellent clothing). 

So, here is a list of the heaviest animals in the world. The most famous and largest one is the African Bush elephant. This species can reach up to six tons and it grows up to ten feet long. Giraffes are large animals too; they weigh about 5,000 pounds on average but the largest giraffe lives in South Africa where it weighs over 7,000 pounds! Blue whales are also huge; they have been hunted by humans for centuries because they are so valuable as food sources or even just decorations. Hippos can grow up to be over 400 pounds if male adult males with females who weigh between 350 - 400 pounds each which makes them an ideal candidate for breeding purposes (both male and female).
