The heaviest land animal ever recorded (according to the Guinness World of Records) was a male African bush elephant shot in Mucusso Angola on November 7, 1974. He weighed 13.5 tons (12.2 tonnes)--as much as nine average-size U.S. cars.

The African bush elephant is the largest (and the second tallest) land mammal, weighing an average of 4 to 8 tons (4-7 tonnes), and standing an average 11 feet (3.35 m) at the shoulder. He also has the largest ears: 4 feet wide, 6 feet long, and covering his shoulders.
