What is the strongest animal?
The Strongest Animal The Hercules beetle is considered the strongest lifter. It is also known as rhinoceros beetle (latin name: dynastes ercules) This insect's avg mass is 20g yet it can lift 17 kg, that is 850 times its own mass!! Can you lift an SUV? What about Ants and Elephants? Well, Consider This... Because, all animals use similar molecules in their muscles, the muscles of all animals is (very roughly) the same strength in terms of force per cross sectional area. However, an animal twice as long typically has muscles roughly four times the cross sectional area (resulting in 4 times the force), but a body weight roughly eight times as much. Because of that power law scaling, the bigger an animal is, the more absolute force its muscles can produce, but the less of that force can be applied to the outside world -- more of that force is required just to move the muscle itself around. And so the animals that can lift the most weight relative to the total weight of the animal are generally the smallest animals -- ants, fleas, etc. But the animals that can move the biggest weights (absolute) strength are generally the largest single animals -- elephants, Clydesdale horses, etc. 1. Elephant 2. Polar bear 3. Rhinoceros 4. Hippopotamus 5. Grizzly bear 6. Hippo elephan the rhinoceros beetle This is maybe the most accurate list. I've calculated average weight, maximum weight, average height, maximum height, average length, maximum length, speed and bite force (this include trunk power for elephants, horn power for rhinos...) I know that giraffe is a little suprise. Rank Name Points 1 African elephant 35.81 2 Polar bear 35.14 3 Asian elephant 33.51 4 Giraffe 33.28 5 Hippo 33.02 6 White rhino 32.20 7 Kodiak bear 32.19 8 Saltwater crocodile 32.16 9 Walrus 32.11 10. Grizzly bear 32.01 10.anaconda 9.bears 8.sea lion 7.king cobra 6.caracal 7.lynx 6.bob cat 5.hippo 4.elephant 3.lion 2.moniter lizard 1.siberian tiger it is a tiger that is all wrong because the strongest animal is the...ant! the ant can lift way more than 20 times it's own weight if a tiger could do that then it could lift an average and of (6400 kg)14200 pounds and more! so clearly that is all wrong... 1. Elephant 2. Polar bear 3. Rhinoceros 4. Hippopotamus 5. Grizzly bear

The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean. It covers 69,375,000 square miles (155,557,000 km2), or 35% of the earth. The Pacific Ocean makes up almost half of all the oceans; it is almost as big as the other four oceans combined. Its deepest point is the Mariana Trench (Challenger Deep) at 11,033 metres. As the earth spins around, there is a viewpoint from outer space where all you can see is the Pacific Ocean. The Pacific Ocean is between Asia on the west and north and South America on the east. It connects to the Indian Ocean to the west, to the Southern Ocean to the south, and to the Arctic Ocean to the north. The Atlantic Ocean is the second largest ocean. The Atlantic Ocean covers 41,105,000 square miles, or 21% of the earth. The Indian Ocean is the third largest ocean. The Indian Ocean covers 28,900,000 square miles, or 15% of the earth. The Indian Ocean is between Africa on the west and Asia on the north. The Southern Ocean is the fourth largest ocean covering 7, 848, 000 square miles. The Arctic Ocean is the smallest of all the oceans covering 5, 427, 000 square miles. The Pacific Ocean is the biggest ocean in the world. The Artic is the smallest.
What is the world's largest amphibian?
The largest living amphibian is the Chinese Giant Salamander (Andrias davidianus). The maximum size of this river-dweller is 64 kg (140 lb) and 1.83 m (6 ft). Before aminotes became the dominant tetrapods, several giant amphibian-like tetrapods existed. The largest known was the crocodile-like Prionosuchus, which reached a length of 9 m (30 ft). Frogs (Anura). Easily the largest member of the largest order of amphibians is the African Goliath frog (Conraua goliath). The maximum size of this species is a weight of 3.8 kg (8.4 lb) and a snout-to-vent length of 35 cm (14 in). The largest of the toads is the Cane Toad. Caecilian (Gymnophiana). The largest of the worm-like caecilians is the Thomson's Caecilian (Caecilia thompsoni), which reaches a length of 1.5 m (5 ft) and can weigh up to about 1 kg (2.2 lb). The largest amphibian in the world is the Chinese Giant Salamander (Andrias davidianus). They can grow as long as 180 cm (6 ft), although it is rare that they get that large nowadays, with normal specimens around 1.15 m (3.8 ft) in length. The second-largest amphibian in the world is the Japanese Giant Salamander (Andrias japonicus), a very close relative of the Chinese Giant Salamander. This species can reach as large as 1.5 meters (5 ft). The Chinese giant salamander is the largest amphibian in the world. They can weigh up to 65 pounds and nearly 6 feet in length. It's amphibian.

What is the strongest earthquake ever recorded?
The Great Chilean Earthquake of 1960 The Valdivia earthquake or Great Chilean Earthquake (Spanish: Gran terremoto de Valdivia) of May 22, 1960, is to date the most powerful earthquake ever recorded, rating 9.5 on the Moment Magnitude scale. It occurred in the afternoon (19:11 GMT, 14:11 local time) and its resulting tsunami affected southern Chile, Hawaii, Japan, the Philippines, eastern New Zealand, southeast Australia, and the Aleutian Islands in Alaska. (Please see the Related link.) Answer From Yahoo: The biggest earthquake since 1900 recorded with modern equipment occurred on May 22, 1960, in Chile and measured 9.5 on the Richter scale. More than 2,000 people were killed, 3,000 injured, and 2,000,000 left homeless. The temblor caused $550 million in damage, and the destruction didn't end there -- the earthquake also caused a tsunami that resulted in 61 deaths and $75 million damage in Hawaii; 138 deaths and $50 million damage in Japan; 32 deaths in the Philippines; and $500,000 in damage to the west coast of the United States. Checking other sites, including the Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences of New Zealand and the Geophysics Program at the University of Washington. Every site we checked corroborated the first site's information. Okay, we now know about the biggest quake in the world, but what about the biggest quake to hit the United States? Well, it was a 9.2 rocker that hit Prince William Sound, Alaska, on March 28, 1964. The destruction was massive, but, luckily, only 125 lives were lost as a result of the earthquake (15) and ensuing tsunami (110). The strongest earthquake ever recorded is the 1960 Valdivia Earthquake that occurred in Chile. This had a magnitude of 9.5.
What are the world's 20 strongest countries?
Which was the strongest dinosaur in the world?
Answer 1 if you mean strongest, then probably one of the sauropods, such as seismosaurus or amphicoelias if it existed. However, they aren't neccessarily the most effective at battle, since t-rex was tall enough to reach their neck and simply crush it (which in turn would be smashed to bits by Ankylosaurus which in turn would be crushed by the large sauropods...) Answer 2 Amphicoelias probably it could just crush everything in its way.
Who has hit the world's longest six ever in any version of cricket?
"Yuvraj Singh" says Shahid Afridi's blasting six at Melbourne 2007 or his 158m six atJohannesburg 2013 may be one of the most biggest sixes of all times.
