Biggest Beasts or Animals of All Time

Aside from the dinosaurs, were there other animals or beasts that were considered giants, in comparison to what they we have now? Yes there were. Based from fossils collected, there were beasts that existed that you probably haven’t heard about.

1. Fossils discovered in northeastern Colombia’s Cerrejon coal mine indicate the biggest snake ever was at least 42 feet (13 meters) long and weighed 2,500 pounds (1,135 kilograms).
