Once upon a time, animals were absolutely enormous. As humans and other predators began to roam the earth, animals began to decrease from their once colossal sizes. Many of these animals like dinosaurs, mammoths, and saber-tooth tigers have since perished, but there are, however, some anomalies that are still around. These modern beasts might be strange mutations from larger mammals belonging to a different time. One cannot explain it, but they are with us today nonetheless. Take a look at these modern-day monsters.
