What would be the most terrifying extinct animal if it were still alive today

There are many terrifying exinct animals. We are giving some of the most terrifying ones.

1. Titanoboa

Titanoboa is that the largest snake that ever existed. It grew to quite 40 feet long and will weigh up to 2,500 pounds. to place things in perspective, that’s almost the maximum amount as a grown giraffe weighs. Titanoboa appeared shortly after the dinosaurs went extinct, perhaps filling a distinct segment left open by the disappearance of the world’s former top predators.

Basically after dinosaurs went extinct this GIGANTIC thing took their place as the biggest, baddest predator on earth.They were 50 feet long, weighed 2,500 pounds and killed their prey via constriction. Pretty scary huh? The Titanoboa was the largest snake that ever “walked” on Earth. It measured up to 40 - 50 feet long, and weighed over a ton (2504 pounds).

2. Deinosuchus

The word “Deinosuchus” translates to “terrible crocodile” in Greek. This croc could grow up to 40 feet in length and weigh 5,500 - 11,000 pounds. Just so you know, the saltwater crocodile is normally 14 - 17 feet in length; the largest Croc ever recorded was Lolong, coming at 20.2 ft, and 2,370 pounds. So imagine a crocodile that is twice the size of that and 2 - 5 times as heavy! Facts and Figures About Deinosuchus

3. Megalania

And no, not Meglavania, Megalania. This is a giant monitor lizard that roamed Australia. Its name means “giant roamer” and it certainly lives up to that name. The Megalania was thought to be around 25 feet in length and around 2 tons. This is pretty much a giant komodo dragon.

4. Megalodon

This guy (or girl) doesn’t need an introduction. This is basically a giant shark. The Megalodon is a giant shark that weighs over 60 tons. This shark is about 3 times the size of an average Great White, and has a bite force of 40,131 pounds per square inch—that is 5 times the bite force of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The Megalodon

5. Megapiranha

This is a 3-feet-long piranha that potentially has the largest bite force ever, and is 4 times larger than a normal piranha. However, unlike a normal piranha, it has two rows of teeth instead of one. Now I know it only has a bite force of 1,000 pounds per square inch, but in relation to its weight (20–25 pounds), that’s very impressive. Put it this way, a T-rex has a bite force of 3,000 pounds per square inch, but its weight is roughly 15,000 pounds. So a megapiranha can bite up to 40–50 times its own weight.
