The Top 10 Heaviest Animals in the World 2020

Animals vary quite a lot in their physical traits. Not only by their height but even more so by their weight. While heavy animals certainly do not belong to the fastest animals on Earth, they do possess other evolutionary advantages due to their size and weight. Heavy and large animals tend to be practically immune to cancer to name one. The accompanying positioning records the 10 heaviest animals known around the world. The ranking is based on the maximum weight a respective species is known to have achieved. While the ranking is (unsurprisingly) dominated by a certain inhabitant of the sea, most of the Top 10 heaviest animals actually live on the land as you will see.

Note: There are the Top 10 Ranking of Biggest Animals in the world.
