Posted 2 years ago / Views: 13,590

Today we are going to cover the strongest animals in the world. These powerful animals and their strength can be measured in two ways, one being the actual strength and the other would be measuring their strength compared to their bodyweight. One thing is for sure, these animals don’t need any kind of gym membership.

Elephant

Elephant is the largest land animal living today. Knowing that fact, it’s not really a shock that it is the first one on our list. They are proven to be the strongest mammals, with incredible power to carry up to 20,000 lb. They usually weigh around 14000 lb themselves so they can carry roughly around 150% of their weight, which is not that impressive compared to some smaller animals we will cover later in this article. Even with this kind of power, elephants have a pretty calm temper so we can look at them as gentle giants in some way.

Ox

Next in line is the ox. This animal is quite large and just taking one look at it is probably enough for you to not question why they are on this list. They are castrated male adult cattle. They get castrated while they are young in order to control them better, in difference to a bull which is an intact male adult cattle.  Oxen possess a tremendous amount of strength and that is the main reason they are used for farming activities such as plowing and pulling carts. They can drag up to 2000 lb. These animals have been our friends since BC, helping us with farming and growing food, and we are all very grateful to them.

Grizzly bear

Grizzly bears, as they are popularly called, are actually named Northern American brown bears. They got the nickname Grizzly because of their golden and gray fur tips, from the word grizzled. These are among largest bears in the world, and they do look very terrifying and mighty. Observations show that an ordinary Grizzly bear can almost effortlessly lift up in 1100 lb in the air. These mesmerizing creatures weigh incredible 600 to 800 lb on average.

Gorilla 

Next one on the list is the famous Gorilla. Something that might surprise you about them is how similar they are to us, humans. According to scientists they are actually our closest relatives, besides bonbos and chimpanzees. If scientists got it right, our DNA is 95% the same as Gorillas'. With all that similarity, there are some very obvious differences, such as physical strength. These creatures can lift up to 10 times their own body weight. This means that a single Gorilla is capable of lifting 4.400 lb. We might have Superman but animals have Gorillas.
