Which is taller: the tallest man or the tallest camel?

The answer may surprise you. While you decide if any man could be taller than the tallest camel, enjoy this giant creation:

The largest member of the family Camelidae is the dromedary or one-humped camel (Camelus dromedarius), with a head and body length of 2.3-3.5 m (7 ft 6 in–11 ft 5 in), a tail length of 55 cm (21 in),a shoulder height of 1.8-2.1 m (6 ft–6 ft 10 in) (maximum 2.4 m 7 ft 10 in) and a weight of 450–690 kg (992–1,521 lb). It is native to the Middle East, but survives today as a feral animal only in Australia and Spain, and as a domestic animal elsewhere. FYI: Incredibly, the world’s tallest man, Robert Wadlow (USA), was taller, measuring 2.72 m (8 ft)!

There you have it. According to Guinness World Records, Robert Wadlow was taller than the tallest known camel.

I know what you’re thinking. For the record, Robert Wadlow was not Bill Gates’ father, … but the men are cousins … because we all are.
