Allen County – Very Large Human Bones



The average adult male femur is 48 centimeters (18.9 in) in length. So a femur 10 inches longer is now 28.9 inches.
Robert Wadlow’s femur was 28.5″
If we multiply the length to a solid regression formula that shows itself accurate with giant application which is 3.7575 You get:
9.0493125 feet tall which is about 9’5″ Nearly accurate to 5″ taller than Robert Wadlow.
So, we are talking about someone 9.5″ in death and 9’8″ when alive.
