In honor of trying to get more sleep during the holidays, I’ve been thinking about beds. And this my friends is a BIG one. This famous sculpture, entitled “In Bed” is by artist Ron Mueck. And however big I may feel, I’m pretty sure I’m not as big as THIS lady:
Materials: Polyester resin, fiberglass, polyurethane, horse hair and cotton
Width: 5.5 ft.
Length: Over 20 ft.
Weight: Unknown, but I’m guessing that a 20 ft. tall woman weighs more than me.
Conclusion: This woman “In Bed” weighs more than me.

Elephants are big. REALLY big. In current terms, they are the largest land animal. I mean, these puppies weigh 200 – 250 lbs. when they’re born! And they can run pretty fast too. (Good thing I got a head start!) Here’s the stats:
Height: Up to 13 ft.
Daily Food Intake: Hundreds of pounds
Daily Water Intake: About 50 gallons
Weight: Up to about 8 tons
Conclusion: An elephant weighs more than me. However, I understand some of them can still do ballet: (Edna the Elephant).
P.S. I probably won’t be seeing any elephants on my upcoming camping trip. But I’ll be sure to let you know what interesting critters I do see…
