      The blue whale – they reach lengths of up to about 100 feet and weights of an amazing 100-150 tons! 🙂

      Hello caitlin! I always find it amazing that the blue whale is not only the largest known species alive today, but it is the largest known species to have EVER lived!!! It’s pretty cool that we live at the same time as these magnificent and giant creatures!

      Not just the largest known to man, but it’s pretty hard to imagine there could be anything larger that we hadn’t noticed!
