The blue whale is the largest animal in the entire world and can reach nearly 100 feet in length. Just its tongue alone can weigh as much as an entire fully-grown elephant! In one breath, a blue whale could blow up 2,000 balloons and the mouth is so huge, it can hold its own body weight in water! If that doesn’t impress you, the blue whale can produce the loudest sound of any animal – at 188 decibels and can be heard from over 500 miles away.
