          Ok. This video has terrible research on everything. The biggest blue whale ever was 33 m long
          The biggest mosasaurus was 13 m long
          The biggest Argentinosaurus was 26 m.
          Where are you getting your numbers from?
          Oh yeah A MOVIE. Wich plays on the size of many creatures. Example philosoraptor.
          Videos like this make me so angry.

          We know more about Outer Space than we do about our own ocean. We probably haven't even discovered a creature that's possibly bigger than a blue whale.

                  1. They need to state that the specimen found in Antartica in 1947 was an ESTIMATED WEIGHT. They do not know the absolute weight or size of the whale.
