    The largest mammal in the world is the blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus). It is also the largest animal ever known to have existed. Blue whales can reach lengths of over 100 feet (30 meters) and can weigh up to 200 tons. They have a long, streamlined body, and their tongues alone can weigh as much as an elephant. Blue whales primarily feed on small shrimp-like animals called krill, and they are found in oceans around the world. Despite their enormous size, blue whales primarily feed on tiny organisms and are known as filter feeders.
