40 Things that are way much bigger than we tend to think

Here is a collection of some amazing photos that will give you a new perspective.
1. Giant of the sea
Whales are the largest animals living on this planet. Some whales can weigh over 200 tons and are almost 100 feet long. Here you can see the comparison between a humpback whale and a human.
