There are many large colonial lifeforms such as trees and fungi that can be quite large. I do not think any of them are animals though.

Forgot about any mundane creatures in favor of cryptids!

I agree with this.

How can you be sure that there were larger animals than the blue whale? So far we have not found anything. The largest reptiles were 1/2 the length of the blue whale. The largest dinosaur maybe 2/3 the length of the blue whale. The largest fish maybe 1/3 the length of a blue whale. Nothing is coming that close to the size of the blue whale. Maybe I overlooked something you were thinking about?

Ah, the largest dinosaur found was estimated to 89 feet, while the blue whale hits 100 feet, both numbers according to Wikipedia.

And that you shouldn't

Oh, and the largest known fungus covers an area of approximately 8,9 square kilometers. Now I come to think of it, I wonder what it weighs..

Well when I was younger I loved dinosaurs (who didn't?) and I knew there was really big ones (duh) so I decided to look up some sauropods.

Supersaurus was 108-112 feet in length and Diplodicous was 115 feet in length. Having said that, measurements are only based on certain fossils and that includes necks and tails.

Not to derail; just thought I'd point that out

Thanks for the update. Despite the length of these which includes necks and tails, the animals are still much smaller in volume and weight than a blue whale. A blue whale is about 180 tons and diplodicus has an upper limit estimated to be 113 tons.

The size measure in the discussion was body mass and not length.

But, thanks again for that useful information.

Lantian!! Mabey the giant stingray-giant sea serpent (they like to hide where its cool and very deep)
Leviathan (beast) when awoke! THese are some speculations of curse.

Godzilla, Rodan, Ghidira, Mothra

All you have to do is visit Monster Island - somewhere in the Pacific

In terms of length, the Bootlace Worm might take the title.

There is a video that might show the skeleton of the Leviathan.

The only creature bigger than the blue whale is the legendary Siamese blue whale. This two-headed leviathan is the originator of the Kraken myth.

That's just a hill. How bad is that video? LOL.

You can also find a giant feather on the ground here at these coordinates:

Don't forget about Cthulhu!!! If he awakens, the old gods will soon come back, and then we're all screwed.

Deny ignorance please! Everyone known that the Kraken myth belongs to the two-tailed leviathan!
It makes extra large splashes, hence all the destruction!

We know more about the Moon then we do our own Oceans. So who really knows what is lurking in the deep depths of the watery abyss. Im sure there are some huge marine life of some sort down in the Oceans some where that have not been discovered yet. Especially if its some form of bottom feeder that never comes up to the surface.

If there is something large in the ocean it would be unlikely to be in the very deepest abyssmal plains. Those areas have little available food. It has been thought that the occasional descending whale carcass could support enough organisms to allow them to travel between undersea vents as they opened up.

I don't think such a large creature is capable of living so deep below. The oxygen concentration is so low, that it would have to come up to the surface once in a while. And, well, no krakens on CNN yet.
