I am the biggest fish in the world and can grow up to 40 feet long and weigh up to 20,000 pounds.

Tropical climates and warm water are my favorite places to be! You will rarely see me close to shore in shallow water, as I spend most of my time around 150 feet below the surface (that’s equivalent to the width of an American football field). On the rare occasion that I do come near the surface, I am really hard to miss! If you haven’t heard by now—I am the biggest fish in the world and can grow up to 40 feet long and weigh up to 20,000 pounds. That is as tall as two giraffes stacked on top of each other and the weight of two elephants combined! My mouth is three feet wide and holds over 350 rows of teeth.
