It is a very big deal to find an eight foot skeleton from the past and it cannot be taken lightly. There are only three people in the world that are 8 foot tall, that’s three people out of the whole planet, of 7 billion people. So when academia is expecting to find 3.5 feet half apes, an instead we find eight footers. Although an eight footer is a great find, this femur is a 30 incher is very significant. Robert Wadlow whom, the guiness book of records as the tallest person that ever lived, his femur was 29.5 inches. Robert Wadlow was 8 foot 11 and a 1/4 which makes a person with a 30 inch femur 8 feet in height.
