Humans have been killing animals for the game for the past many years, and they are still doing it. A study published in the Journal section states that humans steadily drove into extension the biggest land creatures such as mammoths, rhinos, and giant bears. And this hunting game played by humans is still sending the biggest land mammals in the endangered zone. According to researchers, there is very little hope left for saving them from extinction.
Today Earth is home to the heaviest animal that has ever lived and that creature is the blue whale. It is 30 meters in length and 180 tons in weight. A blue whale’s baby weighs around 3 tons. As far as the records can track no past animal has ever read more than the Blue whale.
On November 7, 2016, 27-year-old Tennessee farmer Stephen Tucker killed a white-tailed deer with a 47 point track with his muzzleloader. The deer’s non-typical antlers scored 312 3/8 non-typical Boone and Crockett points, which made it the biggest rack on a whitetail ever killed by a human.
