Whenever we hear or see massive things, we immediately get fascinated. Remember when you first saw a gigantic building? Weren’t you amazed by its humongous size? In any case, the world is packed with creatures much bigger than us. This is especially true during the pre-historic era where colossal beasts walked on Earth.
Since we feel tiny for not sharing this with you, we compiled a list of all things giant. This is definitely something that you won’t want to miss. Check them out!
#16. Sequoia Trees

Considered among the giant creatures that lived in the past, these herbivore dinosaurs could reach 58 meters in length. In fact, its vertebra alone was measured at 2.5 meters. They were deemed kings 145-161 million years ago.
The name itself is enough to convince you of its gigantic size. The Titanoboa lived 58 million years ago and was capable of reaching a height of 13 meters. A reticulated python nowadays are just able to reach 7.5 meters in length.
This one here is the biggest tree-grown fruit in the world, though it’s usually located in tropical countries. It can reach up to 90 centimeters in length, while its diameter can achieve around 50 centimeters.

#9. Giant Deer
Commonly called an Irish elk, this giant deer appeared about 2-3 million years ago. Unfortunately, they began to die as soon as forests started spreading into open spaces. Their large antlers made it impossible for them to move freely.
#8. The Humongous Fungus

Quetzalcoatl lived 68 million years ago and was the largest pterosaur during its prime. Its size made it easily the biggest flying animal to ever walk on Earth. The spread of its wings was between 12 and 15 meters.
