21+ Things That Are Much Bigger Than You Always Thought

My favorite section of the ‘Guinness World Records’ book was always the biggest things. I marveled at the Blue Whale, the skyscrapers vying for the world’s tallest and trucks with wheels the size of a house.

The most important part, the thing that really makes you say ‘wow’ is the scale. You can’t really appreciate the sheer size of something unless something familiar is placed alongside it for comparison. We here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of things that are even bigger than you probably thought. From wombats to wolves, these ‘big’ things are actually freaking huge! Scroll down to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!
