I just ran across this photo of one of the largest bulls in the world:
Chilli is a Friesian bull who lives at the Ferne Animal Sanctuary in Somerset, England. He weighs more than a ton and is over 6 feet tall (the same height as a small elephant!).
A few other giants of the animal world:
Hercules, the largest cat in the world.
Hercules weighs over 900 pounds, is nearly 11 feet long and a little over 4 feet tall (to compare, about 1 1/2 feet taller than the average desk).
Or how about Zeus, “the tallest dog ever” at 44 inches (just for reference, a standard kitchen counter is 36 inches tall, so I’m guessing Zeus’ owners never leave things on the counter).
Then, there’s Romulus, the tallest donkey in the world, at 5 feet, 8 inches at the withers.
Compared to KneeHi, the shortest donkey on record at just over 25 inches, Romulus is a true giant.
