The gorilla is one of the world’s strongest animals. Mountain gorillas, which tend to be larger than other gorilla subspecies, weight roughly 300 to 485 pounds and stand four to 6 feet tall. Despite their physical power and intimidating displays, gorillas are generally not aggressive animals unless they are disturbed or threatened.

Some of the other species on the world’s strongest animals list include the African elephant, grizzly bear, anaconda, ox, tiger, eagle, leafcutter ant, rhinoceros beetle and dung beetle.
