Humans are terrestrial animals, characterized by their erect posture and bipedal locomotion; high manual dexterity and heavy tool use compared to other animals; open-ended and complex language use compared to other animal communications; larger, more complex brains than other primates; and highly advanced and organised. Despite the prevailing belief that humans dominate the animal kingdom when it comes to smarts, we're actually ranked as the third-smartest species on the planet - at least according to Douglas Adams, author of "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." But joking aside, there is something to be said for Douglas' idea.

There is a probability that there may be creatures larger than the Blue Whale because if we haven't found it yet doesn't mean it does not exist. It has been suggested that the blue whale is at the very limit of possible size, and it is probably unlikely that a larger animal could exist. Blue whale. Blue whales are the largest animals to have ever existed. Learn why they're larger than any land animal and why they were hunted for years. A blue whale's tongue alone can weigh as much as an elephant—its heart as much as an automobile.

Scientists have recently estimated that there are approximately 8.7 million species on Earth. They believe that 1-2 million of those species are animals. Scientists believe there are over seven billion humans in the world today. That's a staggering number, but there are more chickens (over 18 billion) than humans.
