    The loudest animal in the world is the blue whale. It creates sound at 188 decibels. To put this in perspective, when a human shouts they create 70 decibels. A jet engine creates 140 decibels

    The animal holding the record for producing the loudest sound is the blue whale. Their low-frequency sounds can reach 188 decibels and can be heard at distances of over 500 miles. That’s louder than a jet engine 30 m away or a rifle shot 1 m away. The howler monkeys are the loudest on land.
