The dimensions have a particularity: they are hardly perceived as they are in reality. When we think of the size of a bear, a boat, or an airplane, it is difficult for us to imagine, by our imagination, their real size. And, probably, it happens because we are trying to imagine something that we have never seen. It is different when, on the other hand, these objects or animals of enormous (or microscopic) dimensions are compared to objects of greater or lesser size. We have selected a few pictures that will help you understand the actual sizes of animals and objects and we bet in many cases you will be amazed.
