Is this the biggest leaf in the world?

We found a MASSIVE leaf outside our classroom. One of our classmates wondered if this was the biggest leaf we could ever see – it was very big!

We discovered that it was not the largest leaf in the world. The largest leaf in the world comes from the Raphia regalis (Raffia Palm). The leaves from this palm can grow as large as 25 metres long and 3 metres wide! The Raphia Regalis can be found in Angola, the Republic of the Congo, Gabon, Cameroon, and Nigeria.

Have you ever discovered something and learned more about it? Let us know!
