The Blue Whale is known as being the largest animal on earth, now and since creation. Some of the largest recorded Blue Whales have measured up to 33 metres (or 110 feet) in length and weighing in at an astounding 190 tonnes. These are baleen whales meaning that they feed on tiny plankton, which is quite amazing, considering their immense size.
