The diameter of Giant Gippsland earthworm is about two centimeters, and its average length is 80 cm. Although, the biggest samples can reach up to two and a half meters! It is very difficult to find them, as they mostly live deep underground at the depth of up to 13 cm. Surprisingly, these giant worms are very sensitive and fragile, treating them uncarefully may result in their death, but most people will be terrified by seeing this crawling two - meter garden hose.
Nobody likes leeches, but you haven’t yet encountered Amazon giant leech. It may reach up to 45.5 cm long. Its peculiar proboscis stretches up to 15 cm, that is why it can easily pierce skin and reach large blood vessels. Several mature Amazon leeches may even kill a large-horned animal.
If the Asian giant hornet lands on a hand, its wings will completely cover a palm, and the distance from its head to abdomen equals to the length of a grown-up person pinky. There is no surprise that this insect is called “bee-sparrow” in Japan. Even a person resistant to insect poisons may die from its sting.

The giant scolopendra inhabiting the rainforests of South America may reach up to 26 cm long, sometimes even 30.

Giant squids grow to enormous sizes. The maximum registered length from their flips up to tentacle tips is 16.5 m, if without tentacles, it is around five.
