The basking shark (Cetorhinus maximus) is the second largest living fish, after the whale shark, and the second of three plankton-eating sharks besides the whale shark and megamouth shark. It is a cosmopolitan migratory species, found in all the world's temperate oceans. It is a slow moving filter feeder and has anatomical adaptations to filter feeding, such as a greatly enlarged mouth and highly developed gill rakers. (wiki) by deloris

Endemic to South America, the Giant Armadillo is the largest of all armadillo species. It is naturally rare & has a patchy distribution. The global population is thought to be declining due to hunting for meat & deforestation. This Vulnerable species is also illegally captured to be sold to animal collectors. The Giant Armadillo occurs in a number of protected areas. There is however a need to reduce hunting pressure & to preserve the natural habitat of this species. by helen

The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before the dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world.

The largest can come in at about 6 meters and has tentacles over 50 meters long. Pretty amazing when you think these things have been swimming around for so long.

Despite its name, the maned wolf is not a wolf at all, nor is it a fox, coyote, or dog. It is the only member of the Chrysocyon genus, making it a truly unique animal, not closely related to any other living canid.
