An international team of researchers has uncovered the world’s largest fossilized skeleton of a whale, a find that suggests this group of animals became huge much earlier than previously thought. The team estimates that the whale was up to 26 meters (85 feet) in length and weighed between 130 and 150 tonnes. That makes it the largest extinct animal ever found, even bigger than the largest known dinosaur.
