A reef can grow about 10 centimetres a year if conditions are just right how much have you grown in the last year? The seabed of the Antarctic Ocean had some mega-sized animals. Scientists found giant spiders and worms, and fish with huge eyes and body parts that scientists described as 'dangly bits'. The sperm whale has the biggest brain in the world. It weighs about 8 kilograms - that's over five times the size of a human brain. But its large brain does not mean that it is the cleverest animal.
