Gotta Watch: Big - REALLY big - critters
If you think the 13-foot, 900 pound gator this Massachusetts woman caught is exceptionally large, wait until you see what a group of villagers caught in the Philippines.

Gotta Watch: Big - REALLY big - critters

Few things are as intriguing as uber large animals. Sure you've seen big dogs or cats, but we're talking about HUGE, rare creatures that make you want to do a double take. It's all on the heels of our most popular video yesterday, featuring footage of a one-ton crocodile. In case you missed it, it's at the end of our blog, but you've gotta watch other ginormous land and sea creatures.

Snaky roadways – This 10-foot boa constrictor gives a new meaning to the warning “dangerous curves.” It was slithering along a busy Florida highway when it was discovered.

Sizing up a shark – Confronting a nearly 500-pound shark should be scary, but for one Massachusetts teen, it ignited pure excitement as he reeled in the enormous sea creature.

Now that's a lot of lobster – Usually a large lobster means good eating for seafood enthusiasts. But this lobster was so big – 20 pounds – it saved him from the cooking pot. It's probably best because it would have needed a lot of butter.

Crazy-sized croc – It's the story you just couldn't get enough of yesterday with an image that keeps on giving. It took a group of villagers three weeks to capture this 21-foot long, one-ton crocodile.

    In prehistoric times animals grew enormous due to a higher level of oxygen in the atmosphere(dragon flies were the size of eagles), once the level of oxygen dropped off animals became smaller.

    Animals are so G*y! What are they even doing here? They just sit around all day and don't do anything! These videos clearly show that.
