...is not just the the largest existing animal, which is obviously common knowledge and impressive enough, but also the heaviest animal to have existed in Earth's history. From Wiki:
Does anyone else find this creature magical?The blue whale is the largest animal ever known to have lived [180 tonnes or more]. By comparison, one of the largest known dinosaurs of the Mesozoic Era was Argentinosaurus, which is estimated to have weighed up to 90 tonnes (99 short tons), comparable to the average of blue whale. Amphicoelias fragillimus, at an estimated 122.4 tonnes (134.9 short tons) is still lighter than the largest blue whales, despite being 190 feet (58 m) in length.
I'm gonna go to sleep now.
