The animal with the biggest heart is the biggest animal ever — the blue whale. This mammal’s heart is as big as a small car (like the Volkswagen Beetle: 2000 pounds, 907 kg). Its main blood vessel (the aorta) is big enough for a man to crawl through. The heart beats slowly (5 or 6 times a minute) as it pumps 10 tons of blood through the body.
