Animals live in water including whales. They are the most gigantic animals on the globe, under the sea or on land. The biggest species goes to blue whales. They are longer than 80 meters and weigh more than 80 tonnes, making them the largest mammals and animals existing. Whales used to dominate the water in every ocean, until the 19th century when humans started to hunt and kill them serially. For this reason, the population of whales decreased drastically.
