My favorite section of the 'Guinness World Records' book was always the biggest things. I marveled at the Blue Whale, the skyscrapers vying for the world's tallest and trucks with wheels the size of a house.

The most important part, the thing that really makes you say 'wow' is the scale. You can't really appreciate the sheer size of something unless something familiar is placed alongside it for comparison. We here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of things that are even bigger than you probably thought. From wombats to wolves, these 'big' things are actually freaking huge! Scroll down to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

I have been to this tree. Pictures simply do not do sequoias justice. They're so big that you can't quite process it, and instead you start to feel like you're the one that shrank.

I've seen a National Geographic photo of a massive tree such as this one. People could stand, upright, on it's branches.

Actually not the tallest anymore. All of the tallest trees in the world are indeed giant sequoias, but Hyperion outranks the General Sherman by far (379.7 ft for Hyperion, compared to 275 ft for General Sherman). Helios was discovered in 2006. I don't believe it's location has been revealed to the public.

As a California native who has seen many trees like this and even lived next door to two, this doesn't seem like such a big deal. That is what familiarity will do.

Last year the "Pioneer Cabin Tree" in California fell from a storm. It had a tunnel that had been driven through with cars and buggies over the years. It was believed to be about 1000 years old. What a shame.

LaurieAnneSmith, General Sherman is in Sequoia National Park, California - you're right, that info should have been included. Heck, the sign with the tree's name was even partly cut off in the photo - how would someone who didn't already know about it look it up?

I was just reading in a book last night about medicine, and when a scientist from the mid 1800's couldn't get a human foot to dissect, he got a bear's foot and did it instead, since they are so similar. It was someone famous, but now I cannot recall who it was.
