    The Tallest Animal: Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis)

    The giraffe is the tallest living terrestrial animal in the world, standing 16–20 feet tall and weighing up to 3,500 pounds. Giraffes are known for their long necks, which can grow up to 6 feet and make up almost half of the height, and their legs alone are taller than most adult humans. Giraffes use their height to reach leaves at the top of trees with the help of their massive 21-inch tongue. Although some subspecies of giraffes are endangered, according to the IUCN, they are marked as Least Concern.

    Many impressively tall animals roam the Earth. The giraffe is the tallest, with a height of up to 19 feet (5.8 meters).

    This planet is full of creatures great and small, but you might be surprised to learn how big some animals can get. Despite gravity's pull keeping everything down, some creatures do seem to win the fight against gravity and grow to extraordinary heights.

    Elephants, for example, can come close to the height of giraffes, the tallest animals on Earth.

    Here are 11 of the tallest animals in the world.

    Formally known as Giraffa camelopardalis, the average giraffe stands 14 to 19 feet (4.3 to 5.8 meters) tall, according to National Geographic. Most of a giraffe's height comes from its famously long neck, which can extend almost 7 feet. They can weigh between 1,750 and 2,800 pounds (794 to 1,270 kilograms), depending on their sex.

    Giraffes in the wild have been known to live up to 40 years.

    Elephants primarily dwell in the savannas of sub-Saharan Africa. They can live up to 70 years.

    Though elephants are native to 37 African countries, the African Wildlife Foundation estimates that there are only about 415,000 elephants left on Earth. About 8% of the world's population of elephants is poached annually, and they are slow to reproduce — elephant pregnancies last 22 months.

    The ostrich is the world's tallest bird. It can grow up to 9 feet (2.7 meters) tall.

    Ostriches are large flightless birds that are native to more than 25 countries in Africa, including Zambia and Kenya, and the westernmost part of Asia (in Turkey), but they can be found all over the world. They can be raised for their meat, though wild populations exist in Australia.

    According to the African Wildlife Foundation, ostriches don't have teeth, but they do have the largest eyeballs of any land animal.

    Brown bears can reach intimidating heights on their hind legs, standing between 7 and 10 feet (2.1 to 3 meters) tall when upright.

    Brown bears can weigh between 500 and 900 pounds (227 to 408 kilograms), though the heaviest bear ever recorded weighed more than 2,500 pounds (1,134 kilograms).

    A moose grows to between 5 and 6.5 feet (1.5 to 2 meters) tall on average. That does not include its antlers, which can measure 6 feet (1.8 meters) across.

    According to National Geographic, moose are the largest of all deer species. But despite their enormous size – many moose weigh about 1,800 pounds (816.5 kilograms) – these creatures are vegetarians. They eat shrubs, pine-cones, moss, and aquatic plants.

    The world's largest horses can stand taller than 6 feet.

    A horse's height is generally measured at its "withers," the place where the neck meets the shoulders. When you consider that a horse's head usually stands considerably higher than its shoulders, it's easy to see how even medium-sized horses can dwarf a human.

    Most riding horses stand about 5 feet (1.5 meters) at the withers.

    There are two types of camels. Dromedary camels — the kind with one hump — stand around 6.5 feet (2 meters) tall at the shoulder.

    Camels are two-toed mammals. They don't store water in their humps as many people believe – those humps are filled with fat, which can be used as an energy source.

    Whereas Dromedary camels have one hump, Bactrian camels have two humps and can grow to about 6 feet (1.8 meters) tall at the shoulders, according to the San Diego Zoo.

    Top 10 Tallest Animals in the World

    Ever wondered which animals are the tallest animals in the world? We'll show you in this Top 10 ranking of the world's tallest land animals.

    Top 10 Tallest Animals in the World

    in Animals

    We, humans, belong to the tallest beings in the world, but *spoiler alert*, on average we certainly aren’t tall enough to make it to the Top 10 (although some individuals certainly would have made the list). The Top 10 is based on the average standing height of the tallest animals, so whales by definition are excluded. As the ranking only includes living animals, don’t expect any dinosaurs either. Read on to find out which animals exactly are the tallest beings on this planet.

    1. Giraffe

    Standing Height: up to 6 meters / 20 feetNatural Habitat: Sub-Saharan Africa

    Unsurprisingly, the giraffe is the world’s tallest living animal by standing height. Male giraffes can measure up to 6 meters or almost 20 feet, but with a height of up to 5.2 meters or 17 feet, female giraffes are also taller than any other terrestrial animal, male or female. The natural habitat of the giraffe includes various regions all over sub-Saharan Africa.

    2. African Elephant

    Standing Height: up to 4 meters / 13 feetNatural Habitat: Sub-Saharan Africa

    With a standing height of up to 4 meters or around 13 feet, the (male) African elephant follows in second place. The African elephant is not to be confused with the Indian elephant, which is considerably smaller in height. Needless to say, the African elephant calls Africa, especially the Southern half of the continent, his natural home.

    3. Siberian Tiger

    Standing Height: Up to 3.7 meters / 12 feetNatural Habitat: Southeastern Russia (Southeastern Siberia)

    You might be surprised to see a tiger coming at third place, but it’s true: Standing on two feet, a (male) Siberian tiger can reach a height of up to 3.7 meters or around 12 feet. This not only makes the Siberian tiger the tallest tiger but also the tallest of all cats. Unfortunately, there aren’t many Siberian tigers left these days and they are highly endangered of going extinct within the next few decades. But their natural habitat is in, obviously, Siberia, more specifically on the Southeastern most edge of Siberia and Russia.

    4. Liger

    Standing Height: up to 3.6 meters / 11.8 feetNatural Habitat: None

    Whenever a male lion loves a female tiger and reproduces with her, a liger is born. This hybrid offspring can practically grow to be as tall as the Siberian tiger. Male ligers reach heights of up to 3.6 meters or 11.8 feet. There are no known instances of ligers living in the wild, meaning they can exclusively be seen in various zoos or safari parks around the world.

    5. Polar Bear

    Standing Height: up to 3.5 meters / 11.5 feetNatural Habitat: Arctic Circle (Greenland, Northern Russia, Northern Canada)

    All types of bears generally belong to the tallest living terrestrial animals, but the Polar bear is the tallest bear of them all. Male adult polar bears can measure up to 3.5 meters or around 11.5 feet. By nature, polar bears exclusively live within the Arctic Circle which includes Greenland as well as parts of Canada and Russia.

    6. Asian Elephant

    Standing Height: up to 3.4 meters / 11.3 feetNatural Habitat: South Asia (primarily India) & Southeast Asia

    Asian Elephants are smaller than their African cousins, but still, show an impressive standing height of up to almost 3 and a half meters or over 11 feet. Among the three subspecies of Asian elephants, the Indian elephant is known to be the tallest.

    7. Bengal Tiger

    Standing Height: Up to 3.2 meters / 10.5 feetNatural Habitat: South Asia (primarily India)

    Somewhat smaller than the Siberian Tiger, but still taller than other Tiger subspecies, comes the Bengal Tiger. Bengal tigers have a head-and-body length of up to 3.1 meters or 10.5 feet.
