Brown long-eared bat. Equipped with ears almost the same length as its body, this widely distributed tree dweller, found in woodlands such as Northamptonshire’s Fineshade Woods, doesn’t have to pursue prey in flight; it picks off invertebrates from leaves and bark.

Giant Sequoias [wiki] (Sequoiadendron giganteum), which only grow in Sierra Nevada, California, are the world’s biggest trees (in terms of volume). The biggest is General Sherman [wiki] in the Sequoia National Park – one behemoth of a tree at 275 feet (83.8 m), over 52,500 cubic feet of volume (1,486 m³), and over 6000 tons in weight.
