The Guinness Book of World Records doesn't have an official record of the world's biggest pregnant belly. Generally, pregnant bellies get bigger as the number of babies in the pregnancy increases. Therefore, bellies of women pregnant with twins are larger than the bellies of women who are pregnant… with only one baby. This increase in size continues with the number of babies involved and since current fertility treatments can result in ever-higher numbers of babies conceived in a single pregnancy, the bellies just keep getting bigger. High-order multiples are big news, so it's possible that one of the moms famous for having a lot of babies (sextuplets, septuplets, and now even octuplets) could claim the coveted title of the "World's Biggest Pregnant Belly."

World's Largest Chess Set NEW Record set - see related article: NEW Big Chess Set Morro Bay, California The World's Largest Chess set is an interactive chess set on the California coast. Conceived in 1970-71 to commemorate the centennial celebration, t was dedicated on December 6, 1975. Ac…ting Mayor Dale Mitchell oficially opened the project, and the first game of chess was under way in an hour between two of the chessboard's main creators, Wachtang 'Botso' Korisheli and Wayne Bickford. The committee in charge of the Centennial Stairway project (and giant chess set) raised over $15,000 in citizen contributions, with the city adding $18,154 from public funds to solve drainage problems and $29,656 for construction. World's Largest Chess Set Stats The chess pieces were designed by Korisheli based on the Staunton pattern universally used by chess players in tournament competition. The wood for the pieces came from two redwood water tanks which had served the city for 50 years atop Morro Bay Boulevard. Two 6' x 12' timbers were glued together and then cut and lathed into 22 inch pawns, 33 inch kings and 31 inch queens. The lathe was especially rigged for this job by Wayne Bickford. The concrete chessboard is made up of alternate black and white 2 foot squares giving an overall dimenstion of 16 feet by 16 feet. the chess pieces wiegh from 18 to 30 pounds each and it has been calculated that in an average game a player will iftmore than 1,000 pounds. The Chessboard is public property abvailable for use with a nominal fee. The Morro Bay Recreation Department administers the use of the chessboard. At the present time, use is limited from 8 am to 5 pm and reservations must be made before noon at least one day in advance. Weekend reservations must be made by noon Friday. Telephone 772-1214 or visit the Recreation Department office at 535 Harbor Street. ( Full Answer )
Largest natural big cat is the Amur (siberian) tiger. However, if a male lion and a female tiger breed they produce a liger, which is bigger. This does not happen naturally in the wild as tiger and lion ranges do not overlap. There are several ligers and tigons (female lion x male tiger, not as b…ig as a liger) in captivity. 1 meter The answer depends on your definition. For a 'pure breed' as it were, the Siberian tiger is the largest felid, or member of the family of cats. Generally, they measure 44-48 inches at the shoulder, 110-140 inches long, and 400-800 pounds. However, while it isn't a 'proper' member of the felidae, the Liger, which is a cross between a male lion and a female tiger, is likely to become larger than either of the originating species, due to a genetic difference between them. But, the liger is a man-made 'accident'.Lions and tigers come from differen continents, and would never interact normally. The only way for this 'species' to come about is if they were to meet in a zoological park or similar. ( Full Answer )

Aspen groves are made up of a common root system, and all the "trees" are stems. That makes it technically a single plant, and at least one covers over a hundred acres. There are also some fungus growths that cover large areas and are, technically, a single plant. However, if you are asking about… the single largest tree, that would be the Coast Redwood of the Pacific Northwest. The largest single-stem tree ever measured was the Lindsey Creek Tree, a coast redwood with a minimum trunk volume of over 2,500 m 3 (88,000 cu ft) and a mass of over 3,600 short tons (3,300 t).

The gypsum crystals of the "Cueva de los Cristales" in the Naica mine of northern Mexico reach 11 meters in length.
