40 Things That Surprised People With Their Unexpected Size

These things are surprisingly bigger than our expectations!

One of the most incredible qualities that humans love to marvel at is the size of things. Elephant, the world’s heaviest and largest animal to tread the earth, cannot compare to the wondrous swimming creatures of the sea. In fact, the average weight of a blue whale is about 25 adult elephants. Its tongue alone is equivalent to one (about 4 tons).

These things have definitely outlived our expectations. Their intimidating size really acts as a wake-up call that we are mere human beings. Even so, discovery doesn’t end here! There are so many things we can still learn and find out!
