What is the second largest land animal in the world?
The African elephant is the largest land animal. It could be said that the Asian elephant is the second largest. If you lump all elephants together, that would leave the white rhinoceros as the second largest. The Indian rhinoceros and the hippopotamus are "similar" in size to the white rhino, but the record largest white rhino is larger than either the Indian rhino or the hippo.

Canada is the second largest country in the world after Russia, but only has a population of around 32,268,000. You would think that Brazil, China and U.S.A would all be bigger, but they are not. The reason why Canada is not so strong on the population front is because it is a cold country. Which is… also quite mountainous. Meaning that are only certain areas of the country that people can live in, mainly on the southern borders of the country. Around the lakes of Erie, Ontario and in the River Valley of St.Lawrence. While in the north of the country lie the bleak Arctic islands where the population is low. In the winter the temperatures in the majority of the country are normally below freezing point, apart from the south-western coast of Canada where normally the temperatures are quite mild. This also means that as Canada is quite close to the Arctic circle or North pole that for several months of the year the country is normally cold. Canada is well known for the Rocky mountains and the Pacific ranges. In some parts of Canada, the country can expect very heavy rainful anything from 10 inches to 20 inches within a year and pretty much every year even though the Prairies often stay dry. (MORE)
1) Asians. 2)White People 3)Black People. Actually, Asians are the second largest. Scientists usually use three races: African, Asian, and Caucasian. Africans would be what is called black, and originates in the continent of Africa. Asian is what would be the far east of Asia and Native Americ…ans. Caucasian would be what is called white (European), along with Middle Easterns or Arabs, Indians, and Hispanics/Latinos. You may be thinking, how are Indians or Latinos or Arabs Caucasian? Race does not just depend on skin colour, but features, and ancestry. All Caucasian ancestors come from the Caucus mountains, all African ancestors come from Africa, and all Asian ancestors come from the far east. Caucasian would be the largest group occupying about 4/7 billion humans. The next largest would be Asian occupying about 2 billion, then Africans with about 1 billion. (MORE)
