Who is bigger, a Tyrannosaurus Rex or a Megalodon? It’s easier to get used to the idea when you see them all together.
Many animals they fascinate us because of their enormous size, although the ones that will outlive us all are the smaller ones, like the tardigrade. a spectacular 3d animation shows us all together in a row: 150 animalsso much alive like already extinctso that we can appreciate your size.
It’s a comparative interesting, first, because it is very well done. And it also mixes animals that no longer exist, such as dinosaurs, with other current ones, so that we can compare.
But the most surprising thing of all is to discover the longer animals who are in the top 3. Surely two of them you did not expect…
It is important to be clear that this is a length comparison. That is, the animals are ordered by what they measure longnot by its volume, or its height.
Comparison of 150 animals according to their length
3D animation starts with the smallest animal, and also the most resistant to all kinds of extreme conditions: the tardigrade. measure only 0.05mmand has come to survive the radiation of space.
Below is a nice collection of insects and arthropodsuntil we reach the mammals like the rat or the rabbit, from 20 centimeters in length.
escorting a human Medium-sized, 1.75 meterswe have the mouflon argaliwho measures 1.70 meters, and the Jaguarwhich can reach 1.8 meters in length, from tail to snout:
We soon reached the longer maniferousthe giraffe with 6 metersand the African elephantwith 6.4 meters. From here, they begin to dominate the aquatic animalsand the extinct.
The blue whale, with its 33 meters longis placed between branchiosaurus and the supersaurin the fifth position of the list:
The most surprising of all is to know who occupies the first three positions. You sure don’t expect it.
In the second position we have the Argentinosaurus, the largest land animal ever known. Half 40 meters long. But he is not the champion:
To your left is the Lion’s Mane Jellyfishwhich comes to measure 36.6 meters.
And the longest animal ever known is he Bootlace Worm. A copy of 55 meters in length. Did you know him?
Here’s the full video:
It’s a very interesting comparison that gives us a whole new perspective on some of the most popular animals in history. Seeing them all together makes us better perceive their size, thanks to this spectacular 3d animation Created by Global Data.
A comparison of length of living and extinct animals, which would be impossible to achieve in reality. The 3d animation offers us a very realistic perspective, and helps us better understand their real size. Spectacular!
