The biggest nerve cells in the world, reaching 12 meters in length

This is one of the largest in the cells of living organisms planete

As an example, the largest cells of living organisms often produce ostrich egg, reaching 15 cm in height and weighing about 1, 5 kg, but this is a myth.

Contrary to popular belief, there are at least a few more types of cells of living organisms, which are larger than the ostrich egg. Perhaps ostrich eggs may be the most severe in the nature of the cells, but the tests have not been conducted yet.

If we talk about the size, rather than weight, the ostrich egg - not the largest cell. Much more nerve cells in large animals like the giant squid - their nerve cells can reach 12 meters in length, which is about 80 times larger than the ostrich egg.
