Part of the A-to-Z blog challenge. My theme is legends and legendary creatures. I hope you enjoy following along!

Giants in the Animal Kingdom

An image gallery of some of the massive animals that once shared our planet. And yes, it is terrifying and thrilling to imagine what it must have been like to see them alive!

You can read about the fossil sizes of these animal giants at http://listverse.com/2013/04/26/10-terrifying-prehistoric-relatives-of-normal-animals/. The debates over how these animals grew so huge, or if they are different species entirely to what we have today, are endless. But one thing is for certain: they existed, and it is mind-boggling to imagine creatures of such size!

  1. The Terrible Crocodile photo reminds me of something I saw on the news earlier this week. Two hunters recently killed a 15-foot, 800-pound alligator in Florida because it was eating a nearby farm’s livestock. *gulp* Of course, that’s nothing compared to the Terrible Crocodile you featured here, but that’s still pretty big!!

  2. Scary creatures. But a fascinating idea of what the world was like when they inhabited it. I’d kind of like to travel back and take a peek, staying in a very safe bubble of course. 🙂

  3. This is . . . absolutely terrifying. But really cool! The idea of a shark bigger than the great white (of which there were a few) freaks the living daylights out of me. It wouldn’t stop me from swimming in the ocean or anything, I’m just saying . . . ;P
