    Hey Val-It's the Nile. 2nd is the Amazon- though there are still arguments for the Amazon to be first. They are both gihugeic (giant and huge put together with an ic on the end...long story)

    Doolittle: It's the Nile River, then the Amazon, then the Yangtze.

    The Amazon River is the second longest river in the world and BY FAR THE LARGEST BY WATERFLOW WITH AN AVERAGE DISCHARGE GREATER THAN THE NEXT SEVEN LARGEST RIVERS COMBINED (not including Madeira and Rio Negro, which are tributaries of the Amazon). The Amazon, WHICH HAS THE LARGEST DRAINAGE BASIN IN THE WORLD, ABOUT 7,050,000 SQUARE KILOMETRES (2,720,000 SQ MI), ACCOUNTS FOR APPROXIMATELY ONE-FIFTH OF THE WORLD'S TOTAL RIVER FLOW.
