Tiger

Tigers are very well known for their dangerous nature. They are one of the most feared members of the felidae family. In case you weren’t aware, tigers are the biggest cats in the world. According to their size it is only logical that they possess a great amount of strength. They are capable of carrying their prey along great distances demonstrating quite the endurance. They can carry something twice their weight, which would be 1200 lb.

Eagle

Next we have the Americas favorite bird, that’s right we are talking about an eagle. There is a reason why such a powerful country picked this exact bird as their symbol. Eagles are famous for their mighty appearance and determined look on their face, but such confidence that can be seen in these birds does not come from their looks. It comes from their amazing strength and agility. Eagles come in various sizes depending on their genera, but they all have similar strength when put in proportion to their weight. All eagles can lift in the air as much as four times their weight. Can you imagine this bird just coming down and picking up a beaver or even a deer fawn. Such strength in a bird is very rare, no wonder America considers an eagle their spirit animal.

Leafcutter ant

Now we move on to the part of the list with small creatures that can lift 50 to 1000 times their own body weight. First in line is the Leafcutter ant, this little fella can carry objects 50 times heavier than itself, and the even more fascinating part of that is that it does this only with its jaws. They have incredibly powerful jaws that are necessary in order for them to effectively cut leaves that they will proceed to carry back to the colony. If we were that powerful, we could pull entire trucks with our teeth, and gyms would probably go out of work.

Rhinoceros beetle 

The last two on our list will be beetles. The one we are talking about right now is called rhinoceros beetle, its name suits it quite well, considering the rhino-like horn on the top of its head. This is one of the most common beetles and you have probably seen it multiple times in your life, maybe you have even played with it as a kid. These little guys can lift 80 times their own weight, if you can even imagine such a thing. To help you wrap your mind around this fact, let us illustrate. If we were as strong as these insects, we could easily lift 60 tons up in the air, and in strongmen competitions people would probably have to start lifting buildings.

Dung Beetle 

Dung beetle is the strongest beetle there is, and at the same time this creature holds the title of the strongest insect in the world. If we are talking about comparing the body weight to the strength of an animal, then dung beetle is the strongest animal in the world. It can lift an object weighing 1150 times of its own weight. Humans can’t compare in any way to these small insects, closest thing we had were the Beatles that lifted entire arenas on their feet.
