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!

This looks like it's been set up as a perspective trick, like she's actually much further up the beach to make it look bigger. Would be cool to see one with a better angle

No, where I live the Leatherback comes to lay it's eggs, and trust me, they really are HUGE. Beautifull animals, but this is not a trick of perspective, they really are giants :)

Very un-informative pic, size-wise. Without seeing her feet I cannot understand where she's standing and therefore the girl-turtle ratio. It's entirely possible to snap a pic like that using a 2 cm long baby turtle but I assume that wasn't supposed to be the case?

Leatherbacks lay their eggs where I live and I don't understand with what this lady should help? Help her getting the eggs out? Help her dig a hole for her nest? You should not disturb them when they come to the shore, but once they started laying their eggs you can get closer, but be carefull. One person is not a problem, it's a problem when a whole group of people bothers the turtle. The biggest problem is not people who want to see a Leatherback in real life for once in their lifetime, the biggest problem are the criminal stealing the eggs and selling them on the black market because stupid people think it's a delicacy even thought the animal is an endangered species.

This is a bit arbitrary. Surely, comets are larger than steroids, which are larger than meteorits, but the size stil can vary by many kilometres in diameter.
