The list of the largest predators includes land animals and, as in the case of two species – elephant seal and crocodile, semiterrestial animals. Therefore, the table does not include the largest predators on Earth – such as sharks or killer whales, which are assigned a separate ranking – including the Largest Sharks.
Similarly, in the case of bears, only the two largest representatives of the species were listed – the polar bear and the largest brown bear – the Kodiak, excluding the remaining bear representatives (e.g. grizzly), as they would dominate the list.
