Top 10 Heaviest Animals In The World

Top 10 Heaviest Animals in the World - Animals differ quite a bit in terms of their physical characteristics. Not only by their height, but more so by their weight. While heavy animals certainly don't belong to the fastest animals on Earth, they do have other evolutionary advantages due to their size and weight. Large and heavy animals tend to be immune to cancer.


The following chart lists the 10 heaviest known animals around the world. The rating is based on the maximum weight achieved by a respective species. Although the ranking is (unsurprisingly) dominated by certain sea dwellers, most of the top 10 heaviest animals actually live on land as you will see.
