Penis is an organ used by male or hermaphrodite organisms to transfer sperm cell into females during intercourse or copulation. The largest recorded size of the penis of an animal belongs to the blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus). Its average penis length ranges from 8 feet to 10 feet and girth (or a measurement around the penis) of 12 inches to 14 inches. Having a large penis consequently produces large amount of ejaculation which is estimated to be over 20 liters. The penis of the blue whale is usually hidden inside its body and grows out during sexual intercourse.
