Biggest Animal on Earth!

Adam Schleichkorn Monday, June 23, 2008 ,
BBC Worldwide Americas, 2008: Discover the Blue Whale, the biggest animal ever to live on our planet, in this clip from "The BBC Natural History Collection Featuring Planet Earth" DVD box set. This creature is 30 meters long, and weighs over 200 tons, which makes it far bigger than the largest dinosaur!

They are not bigger then the biggest dinosaur. There were several dinosaurs that got larger than 30 meters. One of the largest dinosaurs, the Bruhathkayosaurus (Titanosaur) that's estimated over 40 m. You should really research your facts and get them straight before posting them to get the most current info.

I agree, the Blue whale is not the bigget animal ever to inhabit our planet. Amphicoelias fragillimus is estimated to have been the largest dinosaur at 58m in lenght. It would be a fair statement to say that these mammals are 'one' of the biggest animals in existence today. However, I really have to say that saying the blue whale is the largest animal ever, seems like an overzealous statement.

Yes indeed the Amphicoelias is larger but that's because its tail and neck are almost four fifths of his entire body lenght.
So technically it is indeed the biggest animals ever lived, yet the blue whale will probably look bigger compared to the Amphicoelias.
By the way, this is not a full grown blue whale in the picture.

who cares. goodness... its a whale... if they want to say its the biggest let em. can you find a Amphicoelias and compare them?? no. has anyone ever SEEN a Amphicoelias IN PERSON? no. There HAS to be something else to worry about then what bigger... wow.

Anonymous said...

Amphicoelias fragillimus was only known from ONE bone, a vertebra which was lost or destroyed (plus it was not a complete bone, so we don't know how accurate the measurements and scaling-up would be). And it was mostly neck and tail anyway, just like Diplodocus. Its torso alone would look small next to that fat whale.

By Gregory Paul's estimate, A. fragillimus was 170 feet long, though this is again speculative. The smaller species, Amphicoelias altus, was 90 ft long, the same size as its relative Diplodocus. At least that one, we still have the bones for.

In either case a Blue whale is STILL heavier - its weight can double from 100 to 200 tons since it eats so much krill in the winter. And no dinosaur has EVER been found that could possibly weigh 200 tons. Though it IS always possible...

Anonymous said...

wrong- Amphicoelias could very EASILY have weighed near 200 tons and may have been more than twice the length of a blue whale. It all depends on how they were fleshed out- but given the potential enormity of this creature, IF it were 190 feet, I'd wager it'd weigh at LEAST 130 tons and if it had more flesh or fat on it's frame, possibly far more though it's impossible to say for sure short of seeing a live one.

I CAN say that counting KRILL weight and seawater weight isn't accurate as to a blue's true mass (just the whale, not the food or water- tons of it- in it's throat)- I'll bet good money an empty blue whale at 90 feet would weigh no more than 120 tons, 150 max, and the heaviest sauropods could actually weigh more AND be longer by far.

Gaddy Bergmann said...

The blue whale is indeed the largest animal known of all time, with a mass approaching 200 tons. The sauropods were the largest terrestrial animals, and some appear to have been longer than the blue whale, but none heavier. Bruhathkayosaurus may have been the heaviest animal on land, but with an estimated weight of around 140 tons, it was still smaller than the blue whale: mind-bogglingly enormous, but still not as massive as the whale. Good thing, too; the whale's bulk is supported by water, but the dinosaur's was not!

Anonymous said...

Like others have said, the information of size and weight of the Blue Whale is fact, the Bruhathkayosaurus and Amphicoelias fragillimus is estimated, who is to say how big the animal truly was, could be as long as they estimate it or it could be shorter, then again, I guess it could be longer though as well

it not the bigest ever to live

Was so. Snot.

haha naw i dont think so buddy. it all depends how you define biggest. i define biggest as tallest, longest, strongest, and heaviest. if you hold the #1 in all 4 catagories then you win. but the blue whale suurely does not. i dont believe it. because every blue whale i see isnt that big. i look as its width and im dissapointed. it seems everyones talking about LENGTH AND WEIGHT. its not the case for the biggest animal

paul said...

Sorry people, the whale is big but as technology has improved the Bruhathkayosaurus could way over 230 tons and could even grow larger than 45 meters. Sorry to say the whale is big but dino biger. They are from different times so should not even compare them.

Anonymous said...

You all really need to get a life. Once you get beyond 10 tons, who cares? If he sits on you at 10 tons, 50 tons, 130 tons, or 200 tons, there isn't much difference... you're flat. I wish some of these dinos were still around to sit on those of you debating who is/was largest.

Just read this on a site:
Blue whales are the largest animals ever, twice as big as the largest dinosaur.

Yeah. It's fairly well known. Blue whales are the largest animals to have ever existed. Kerpow!

Well, the post is actually the freshest topic on this registry related issue. I fit in with your conclusions and will thirstily look forward to your coming updates. Just saying thanks will not just be sufficient, for the phenomenal lucidity in your writing. I will right away grab your rss feed to stay abreast of any updates.

Anonymous said...

I hate to jump into such a heated debate but, here are the facts......Size is usually determined by mass not length. So with that being said the blue whale "at nearly 200 tons" is far and away the largest creature ever to live on earth. Though there are estimates of Argentinasaurus reaching weights of as much as 130 tons....there is no definitive evidence to support those estimates.

Anonymous said...

That picture doesn't look like a whale at all. I looks more like highly magnified slug.

Anonymous said...

You cannot simply say the whale is the largest creature EVER. Do you know for sure that the scientists remarks about all those dinosaurs are right? Do you THINK that all the dinosaurs and creatures that ever roamed the planet have been DISCOVERED? No, of course not, and even though i admit you COULD be right, you have no knowledge or evidence to conclude that. I suppose you could say it is SUSPECTED to be one of the heaviest (or how you want to put it) creatures KNOWN...
That's all I have to say.

Anonymous said...

MANY sources can be quoted as making this same claim. Attenborough has also made this statement. I'm pretty sure this poor guy is justified in making the claim.

Then must be a giraffe is bigger than an elephant cause it is taller

Anonymous said...

omg the blue whale is the largest animal at present and no one knows for sure how big dinosaurs are anyways. every comment that is saying that dinousaurs are larger happen to have a ESTIMATED or COULD in front of it. because no one was around then to record all that shit so go out and talk to people with your mouths its so much better

Lol, Amphicoelias Fragilimus only had one bone found of it, which was it's vertebrae, and only part of it. Plus, it's either lost or destroyed. In other words, it might have been smaller then the blue whale, although unlikely. But, if your talking about heaviest, then yes, the blue whale could quite possibly be the heaviest animal that has ever lived on this planet. Also, Bruhathkayosaurus wouldn't be able to live if it was ATLEAST 200 tons, so yeah. Bottom line: Amphicoelias was longer and probably taller then the blue whale, and blue whale is the heaviest.

*"In either case a Blue whale is STILL heavier - its weight can double from 100 to 200 tons since it eats so much krill in the winter. And no dinosaur has EVER been found that could possibly weigh 200 tons."

Yeah....sure, because every Blue Whale that has been caught weighs around 200 tons....no offense but this is just a load of ignorant rubbish. The average weight of a Blue Whale usually resides around 110-80 tons in weight, or no larger then Puertasaurus or Argentinosaurus, with the maximum weight to be around 150 tons. The largest Blue Whale ever caught was a pregnant female at 175 tons, so no where close to 200 tons. Here is a hint bud, try scaling up Fragillimus and consider the fact that it also includes fat, blood and flesh and you will have a Sauropod that weighs approximately 150-200 tons.

Furthermore to all those sheeple here, it is tolerable to call the Blue Whale the largest animal alive today. But to call it the largest ever is not only highly dubious, but also ignorant and naive as well, just like how this article is nothing more then "Copy and Paste" Cetacean idiocy.
