Animals of all shapes and sizes have different kinds of strengths. Deciding which animals are the strongest really depends on how you define strength. Do you define strength as the sheer power of an animal, how much they can carry pound-for-pound, or the strength of their bite? This list includes land mammals, marine animals, and insects, all of which are ridiculously strong, in one way or another.
Some animals can carry large amounts of weight, up to several times their own body mass, while others have really strong and ferocious bites. Do you think you know what the strongest animal is? You might be shocked to find out that some of the smallest animals are actually the strongest pound-for-pound.
The top two strongest living things are beetles (yes—beetles!) and the strongest mammal is a gorilla. Which other animals are the strongest on Earth? Take a look at this list, and consider which creatures you would not want to go head to head with.
Blue whales are known for being one of the strongest animals because of the enormous muscle strength it takes for this animal to move. Weighing in at up to 200 tons, it takes a lot of strength to move that much mass around.
