Chinese Rat Snake
Named after their ferocious appetite, which not surprisingly consists mostly of rats, these brightly colored behemoths can grow to nearly 5 meters in length.
Belonging to the triad of largest land mammals in the world together with the elephant and the rhinoceros, hippos are semi-aquatic creatures that spend most of their time partially submerged in water holes. Don’t let this fool you though. Like icebergs, most of their mass is hidden and if you manage to upset one of them…run. They’re notoriously fast.
Bluntnose Sixgill Shark
Also known as the cow shark it can grow to be over 5 meters long. It is actually the largest of its subspecies although this is probably partially due to the fact that most of its closest relatives are extinct.
Last time it was cow sharks, now its tiger sharks. Growing slightly larger than their counterparts they can be nearly 6 meters long and typically feed on birds, turtles, seals, and even dolphins.
Growing to nearly 6 meters in length it’s the largest venomous snake in the world. The name seems appropriate.
