It’s easy to forget about the absolutely massive creatures that hide under the ocean’s surface.

Koalas are usually silent creatures, but they do communicate through a range of vocalizations.

#1 The Biggest Black Marlin Ever Caught

In 1953, Alfred Glassell, Jr. made history by catching a 1,560-pound black marlin off Cabo Blanco, Peru.

#2 Great White Shark Ever Caught

Alfred Dean’s 1959 catch of a 2,664-pound great white shark in Australian waters stands as a monumental record.
