How big are animals really compared to us? We’ve all seen the charts that attempt to show an animal’s size compared to that of an average human, but it’s very hard to truly comprehend an animal’s relative size based on shaded figures – especially when we’re so used to seeing them in a much smaller size.
When we talk about dogs, cats, rabbits, and other cute creatures, we have specific sizes for each one in mind. However, just like us humans, they also come in different shapes and sizes. In fact, some of their breeds are much larger than you thought. Here are 22 animals that are way bigger than we could have imagined.
1. “This ridiculously massive doggo we spotted on the subway.”
2. “This is me and my 8-month-old Flemish Giant baby rabbit named Cinderella. She’s still growing.”
3. No, it isn’t a bear cub, it’s a Newfoundland pup.
4. Another Newfoundland pup — and still growing.
5. “Met a hefty 225-pound malamute yesterday! Giant is an understatement.”
6. Isn’t this piggy cute? And huge.
7. This could pass as a stuffed toy.
8. “I’m in awe of the size of this rabbit. It’s an absolute giant.”
9. A Golden Retriever puppy. You read that right, a puppy.
10. “It’s a Tibetan Mastiff puppy. He’s only 6 months old.”
11. A Saint Bernard pup. Just imagine the adult version of this fluffy giant.
12. “Waiting for his breakfast…”
13. This battle-tested beast of a ram.
14. “This cat doesn’t need to jump up on the table, she can eat all the food just like that.”
15. This turtle is an ancient giant.
16. Was he the bait to catch this huge fish?
17. “This Flemish Giant rabbit is as big as an adult Husky dog.”
18. This perfect Maine Coon. And by perfect, I mean massive.
19. Meet Wendy, the Incredible Hulk of Whippets.
20. He’s so big he could carry his own bucket of fish.
21. This is dangerous, right?
22. A jellyfish that looks like a tiki hut.
Seeing these giant animals next to people is definitely jaw-dropping!

Doctor Published Fabricated Study 20 Years Ago And It Made Us All Sicker
He falsified facts but got rich for the fabrication.
Medical professionals are supposed to help us get better. However, a doctor only succeeded in making the rest of the world much sicker. He had published a study 20 years ago that was a complete fabrication.
In 1998, Dr Andrew Wakefield allegedly conducted a study with stunning results. It was revealed that there was a connection between autism and vaccines. His "findings" were then published by The Lancet and parents immediately prevented their children from getting vaccinated. Unfortunately, Wakefield's paper had been a lie.
Vaccines are safe for children yet Wakefield's study alleged that it is dangerous.
Girl Scouts Sue Boy Scouts Over Gender-Inclusive Effort
The Girl Scouts don’t want the Boy Scouts poaching in their territory.
The Girl Scouts of the United States of America is suing the Boy Scouts of America for trademark infringement. The Girl Scouts believe that the organization’s inclusive rebranding effort has caused all sorts of consumer confusion from mistaken enrollment in the Boy Scouts to misinformation about a merge of the two groups.
The complaint was filed in a Manhattan federal court on Monday. It comes after the Boy Scouts announced plans to drop the word "boy" from its program for 11- to 17-year-olds starting next February. The program wanted a more inclusive moniker because it's letting girls enter its ranks in 2019.
