Wow! Gigantic Animals That Actually Exist

The Friendly 15.3 Hands Donkey


Oklahoma Sam was dubbed the “Tallest Living Donkey” in 2012 at the age of four years old. At an astonishing 15.3 hands in length, she was much larger than the common donkey, who is typically eight hands. Oklahoma Sam lived in California with her owner and several other animals, including a Macaw, duck, goose, and four cats, who had no problem with the donkey’s size. Owner Linda Davis told Guinness World Records, “It actually doesn’t cost any more to have a donkey of this size. He doesn’t eat more. In fact, if I give him more bale he’ll just use it to make his bedding more comfortable.”
