Well that depends upon your definition of strong! 
Blue Whale - By pure brute strength the Blue Whale is the strongest animal in the world. Its size is amazing and a flick of its tail can send a boat flying through the air.


African Elephant - African Elephants are the strongest land mammals on the earth. With just their trunks they can lift objects that weigh up to 600 pounds (270 kilograms).


Saltwater Crocodile - The saltwater crocodile's jaws can exert an amazing 3,700 pounds per square inch (psi) of bite force. This gives it the strongest bite force of any animal alive today; more than twelve times stronger than that of a great white shark.


Leafcutter Ant - Leafcutter ants are one of the strongest animals pound for pound. In fact these strong creatures can carry objects that are up to fifty times their own body weight.


Dung Beetle - Pound for pound the strongest animal on the planet. They can pull objects that are well over 1,000 times their own body weight.


Eastern Lowland Gorillas - Eastern Lowland Gorillas are not only intelligent but process incredible power. They have been seen pulling down huge tree trunks and lifting objects as heavy as 4,409 pounds (2,000 kg).


Musk Ox - A Musk Ox has incredible pulling power. They can pull loads 1 1/2 times their own weight over rough ground.


Tiger - Tigers are not only beautiful animals but are also extremely strong. They have been observed dragging huge animals they have killed high up into trees. They are stronger than lions.


Rhinoceros Beetle - Rhinoceros Beetles can lift objects 850 times their own weight.


Grizzly Bear - Grizzly Bears are extremely strong. They have been known to kill large animals like elk and moose with one blow of their powerful legs. However it is their bite that is most dangerous. Their bite is powerful enough to crush a bowling ball.

Homo sapiens might be all evolved and shit, but we are still way too below in Nature's food chain!

Not many can beat this uber-cool, eight-legged segmented micro-animal. Take a look:

You think I am kidding right?? Just hang on….

These species have lived since Cambrian era(500+ million years ago), twice as old as dinosaurs and they are still living…STILL LIVING…Digest that !!!They can chill, have a cup of coffee and roam wearing shades at temperatures ranging from -200 to 150 degree celsius.They can be found atop the Himalayas as well as the depths of the ocean, Japanese hot springs, several metres under glaciers in the Arctic and even in space. :o :oThey can survive upto 6000 times the atmospheric pressure.They can survive 1000 times the lethal human dose of X-ray radiation.

In case you need more reasons to call thetardigrade the coolest animal on earth, here’s one more. This is a picture of an egg of this superhero- “The Epitome of Art.”:

If this isn’t strong, I do not know what is. I HUMBLY BOW TO THEE.

it really depends on what you mean by 'strong'. the question is too open ended. if you mean brute strength , then the leaf cutter ants as mentioned below are very strong. so are some fleas and other insects that can lift tens of times their own weight. if realtive size is not important then the elephant, rhino, whales etc are very strong.
if you mean resilient, then some extremophile microbes survive in the worst possible environments.  Also check out waterbear.
Even still, in a way human beings are the most powerful beings on this planet cause they can control almost every other organism.

In this world, though there has been uncountable number of animals, resources and various sources are available, we are all not remembering all of them. We are remembering specifically only some of the animals, resources, plants and animals that too for some reasons. One of the such reason for remembering Blue Whale is as it is said to be the strongest animal in the world. Let me list out some facts and information about blue whale

1. It's tongues itself can weigh as much as the weight of elephant

2. It's main food items will be the smallest marine life tiny shrimp like animals called krill. A single adult blue whale can consume 3,6000kg of krill a day.

3. It mainly catch their preys by driving to the depth of 500m

4. It's mouth has a fascinating row of plates fringed with bristles for filtering the main source of food plankton from the water.

5. Blue whales occasionally swim in small groups and mostly in alone or in pairs.
