There are some things that appear regular-sized or small when you look at it from a distance. But if you were to see it in front of you, you’d be surprised that these things are bigger than you thought! And of course, no, your eyes won’t be playing tricks on you. It’s time to open your eyes and see the reality behind seemingly small objects.
1. Modern Day Cruise Ship vs. the Titanic
Think the biggest ship in the port is Titanic? Think again. Just look at the big difference between the two. The cruise ship makes Titanic look like a minnow.
2. Gorilla Hands
There’s no doubt about it. Gorilla hands are very much like ours. They have five fingers and nails that look just like a human’s. But if you were to compare the size, boy, we’d lose right away. Just look at this photo of a human hand right in front of a gorilla hand. Plus, imagine if we taught them how to lift weights.
3. Blue Whale’s Heart
You are looking at a replica of a blue whale’s heart – the biggest among any living creature in the world. It weighs about 400 pounds, and is about 5 feet long, 4 feet wide, and 5 feet tall. It weighs 14 times as much as an elephant’s heart, and 640 times as much as a human heart.
You may have read discussions saying that the heart is as big as a small car (maybe a Volkswagen Beetle), but that’s not the case. In reality, it’s pretty much like a small piano or a Harley-Davidson. Still, it’s incredible, right?
4. Adult Moose
Did you know a fully grown moose can be over 7 feet tall and over 10 feet in length? The males can way as much as 1,500 pounds or more, the same size as a small vehicle. The females can weigh as much as 1,000 pounds. Factor in their weight and strength and these animals can cause some serious damage. However, they are usually pretty calm.
Say whaaaat! How come it looks so small when we’re driving on the road? If you look at it now, the light is even bigger than an adult’s face. This is literally magic. To the experts reading there, is this the standard size?
