And the biggest animal in the world is a girl.

Though it’s difficult to take precise measurements of very large animals underwater, it’s certain that the blue whale is the largest creature in existence and it’s likely that it’s the largest one ever to have lived.  These whales come close to one hundred feet in length, and the females of the species are larger than the males.
