My favorite section of the 'Guinness World Records' book was always the biggest things. I marveled at the Blue Whale, the skyscrapers vying for the world's tallest and trucks with wheels the size of a house.

The most important part, the thing that really makes you say 'wow' is the scale. You can't really appreciate the sheer size of something unless something familiar is placed alongside it for comparison. We here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of things that are even bigger than you probably thought. From wombats to wolves, these 'big' things are actually freaking huge! Scroll down to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

I've seen this before, or well not inflated, so this is fascinating. Horse innards are all surprisingly huge...especially the guts, you don't expect that much guts either (before anyone asks, I used to work in a zoo. The horse had been terminally injured and the owner gave the carcass to the zoo to dispose of. The horse went to the wolves for a good half a year, huge horse).

The real question is.......why do they have inflated horse lungs

Cactuar Jon
Community Member
2 years ago

It will be for research. The lungs will have been taken from a recently deceased horse and they will be pumping pressure into them for whatever reason, usually to train and develop knowledge. Or, it could be the lungs are part of a post-mortem to determine the late horses death.

Well, it is not uncommon that humans outrun horses over great distances and humans lungs are a lot smaller... Guess these lungs have more of a benefit in a shorter distance where VO2max is more important. What Im saying is that lungs are not that important for great distances.

I was just reading in a book last night about medicine, and when a scientist from the mid 1800's couldn't get a human foot to dissect, he got a bear's foot and did it instead, since they are so similar. It was someone famous, but now I cannot recall who it was.
