The animal kingdom has an infinite number of fascinating creatures to offer, including, of course, particularly powerful creatures. One of the strongest animals in the world is the gorilla. The muscular primate can lift over 2,000 kilograms, which is ten times its own weight. The African elephant is also not weak on the chest. 9,000 kilograms are no problem for the pachyderm. However, the elephant itself weighs around 6,200 kilos.

Adler: The strongest animal in the air

The anaconda also has concentrated power to offer. The large snake can choke animals weighing up to 250 kg to death. Capybaras or caimans are therefore definitely on her menu. No one can fool the eagle in the air. The King of the Skies can grab other animals that weigh four times his weight and still fly cheerfully.

Dung beetle: drags a thousand times its own weight

Once again in the country, the ox is a real muscle man: 900 kilograms can be farmed and thus one and a half times its weight. Finally, an admittedly somewhat strange powerhouse, a dung beetle. The insect actually manages to drag a thousand times its own weight through the area.
