      Bootlace Worm or Lineus Longissimus. It is the world longest animal ever found which washed upon the shore of Scotland in the late 1800’s. It is better known as the Ribbon Worm, it measure 180 feet in length. It is longer than the longest Dinosaur and the Blue Whale.

    If you consider tail size in relation to the animal's body, a mouse's tail is actually about 1 1/2 times longer than its' body.

    Lemurs and similar tree climbing animals have pretty long tails.

    A blue whale?  Not sure where to start measuring, but if you only count the flukes it's still bigger than most animals entire body!

    I think it's the tale of Peter Rabbit.  About 150 years or so long.
