Tiger

Not only does the weight of this animal reach 550 kg, but the tiger is able to kill and drag prey onto the tree, which exceeds its body weight twice.

Leopard

This insidious beast easily breaks the skull of an antelope with its jaws, and absolutely "seeds" for it are human bones. However, he is far from so strong and can lift a weight that exceeds his own by about twice (like men of the genus Homo sapiens).

Indian elephant

Still, we will also be guided by those who lift loads larger than we can lift ourselves. And this, of course, is an elephant that is capable of lifting several tons. On the one hand, this is a lot, on the other hand, it is more than only 1.7 times the weight of his own body.

Ox

It is not in vain that oxen have been used for hundreds of years for transporting goods and plowing the land. An ox is capable of pulling up to 900 kg, which is 1.5 times its mass.

Grizzly bear

But this seemingly terrifying predator is only able to lift a weight equal to its own. True, for a person this is very, very much - more than 500 kg.

Anaconda

It is considered one of the most powerful snakes on the planet. Her body weight reaches an average of 250 kg, and she is able to strangle and swallow a victim the size of herself.

Crowned eagle

It is considered one of the most powerful birds in the world and the largest forest eagle in Africa. If this bird of prey senses an impending danger, it will violently and lightning fast attack, and not only baboons, but also predators, as well as people. In the air, the eagle lifts prey, which exceeds its own weight four times, that is, almost 70 kg. So, if you walk in the African savannah, beware of eagles soaring in the sky. But a bird sitting on a branch is much safer. The monkeys, who tease her and grab her legs, also know about it. But as soon as the eagle soars to heaven, the monkeys try to behave as carefully as possible.

Gorilla

In addition to their frightening appearance, gorillas are very strong. And they will not fail to show off their strength in front of rivals during the mating season, lifting huge cobblestones. The largest of them can weigh ten times the weight of the animal. This is despite the fact that the mass of male gorillas averages 135-250 kg and more. Even leopards avoid encounters with gorillas - also, as we remember, not weak guys, given, moreover, their speed and cunning. Not to mention the remarkable strength, only the fangs of the male gorilla reach 5 cm and are capable of inflicting horrific wounds.

Ant

Yes, this predator is more terrible than a gorilla. For insects, of course. It is the ant that is considered one of the most powerful animals on the planet. Ordinary ants building piles in your garden can lift up to 20 times their own weight. And the leaf-cutting ant is at fifty. And also ants are excellent fighters: they are able to knock out insects that are much more aggressive than themselves.

Rhinoceros beetle

Incredibly, this cute beetle, which we all certainly wanted to hide in a matchbox, is capable of lifting 850 (!) Times more weight than the weight of its own body. It would seem that this is the limit. But no.

Image

Dung-beetle

Certainly well known to all residents of our country. The dimensions of one of the strongest creatures on Earth and the traditional object of jokes on the part of children do not exceed 3-7 cm. But the weight that this beetle can lift is 1140 times heavier than it.

Carapace tick

The leader of our rating. This microscopic creature will not even lift a mug of coffee, which any of us easily picks up in the morning. And yet this strong man is capable of lifting 1,180 times his own weight.
