20 Photo Comparisons Of Animals That Show How Massive They Really Are

We know that there are some big animals, like twice a human, but how big exactly?

The blue whale is known as one of the largest animals ever to exist. Imagine: the largest ever measured 110 feet long. Think of it as longer than 2 packed school buses that seat 40 people each. It’s also longer than 18 grown men of 6 feet laid head to toe with each other.

Below we have a collection of animal photos that put their size into perspective and do the “just imagine” part for us. Enjoy these big animals from very large Maine coons to gigantic Siberian tigers.

Jess Beckwith, a professional Maine coon breeder based in the United Kingdom from, said that Maine coons are referred to “as the dogs of the cat world, not only because of their incredible personalities but also because of their size.” These are the biggest domestic cats and can range from 11 to 33 pounds when fully grown. Two of Jess’s “young neutered boys currently hit the scales at around 21 pounds.” The largest Maine coon is named Barivel and he measures a whopping 3 feet and 11.2 inches from head to tail tip. That makes him longer than a baseball bat.
