    erm, the anaconda should be far higher.

    “They can squeeze something same as their own body weight to death. Their weight can reach 550 pounds.”

    .. they can also squeeze something 3x their body weight to death, and their crushing power on your chest would be the equivalent of a double decker bus.

    Elephant strongest mammal, umm, I don’t think so, what about the Blue Whale, the babies at birth weigh 12 tons, 24,000 pounds, and as an adult they can weigh as much as 150 tons, 300,000 pounds. That is like 25 elephants. As the norm internet info is wrong.

    humans are actually proportionally stronger than elephants and grizzly bears. Elephants can only lift half their body weight and grizzly bears 0.8 times their body weight but humans,on average, can lift their body

    Gorilla > Bear

    The Gorilla will probably get very seriously injured, but the Grizzly will get dismembered by the immensely strong arms of the gorilla and after that bitten to death, even if it’s only half the size of the bear. Hope they don’t meet, it would be a waste of those beautiful animals.

    Correction, it’s actually the hercules beetle, a subspecies of the rhinocerous beetle that can lift up to 850 times it’s body weight, otherwise, very cool facts.

    the strongest animal in the world it’s not the beetle, it’s a tropical mite that can lift verticaly 1024 times it’s own body weight

    Eric: Although The Whale is the most massive Mammal that doesn’t equate to any measure of strength… and yet you have the temerity to chide all of The Internet as being incorrect?? I guess that fact must begin with your erroneous contention, eh??!

    The information presented in this article about the Rhinoceros Beetle is very incorrect. This insect can lift about 0.24 kg only in proportion to its mass at around 0.00238 kg. The beetle can carry a maximum of about 100 times its own weight, and up to about 30 times its own weight at its usual walking speed, (which is about 0.01 m/s).

    I’m not sure where the OP gets its sources from, but 850 is way off and sort of odd.
