Animal Size Comparison Chart by Myuui Animal Size Comparison Chart by Myuui
Updated/Edited March 24, 2011

A complete and very useful accurate animal size chart for your use :)

For best quality, download the image. Warning, it is MASSIVE.

I did NOT draw these images. In order to preserve correct anatomy, I traced them from photographs.

Because this chart is so big and confusing, I've separated a few of the species
[link] - CANINE Size Comparison Chart
[link] - FELINE Size Comparison Chart - YES I'm flipping aware Hyenas aren't felines. Jeeze I just put them there because they're more closely related.
[link] - TYPICAL MIX Size Comparison Chart

Use as you may, on any site you wish, however do not claim it as your own and please link back here! 8D
This is as close as I could get the sizes. I looked them up multiple times, and these are averages.


Edit:// BY THE WAY. Dogs/Cats/Horses/Bears Are measured at the WITHERS or point of the shoulders, right at the base of the neck. Only thing on here that's not is the man. PLEASE keep this in mind when creating your ELEPHANT sized dogs v.v

Thank you so much! This is incredibly helpful. It must have taken much of your time to research, and create the chart. So I'm pleased to say thank you for putting your efforts into this.

in weight not height. Tigers are 3 - 3.5 feet. Lions are up to 4 feet.

no they are right,  tigers are the largest big cats 

tigers are 70 – 122cm and lions are 120 cm on average

Do you seriously think I didn't research this before I made it? Honestly? 

First of all, those two statistics don't add up. One is a RANGE and the other is an AVERAGE. You can't compare the two. 

So here are multiple sources that state that a tiger is generally 3 to 3.5 feet in height -………
And here are multiple sources that state that a lion is generally 3.5 to 4 feet in height -………

Note that I am basing this off of MALES which are generally much larger than females. Many sources state that male lions can reach heights of up to 4 feet while I have not seen any suggesting tigers do.

In the link for Feline size, the animals are too small. A male lion is typically 4 ft at its shoulder, putting its head higher, but there its head is at 4 ft. The chart above is much better and very helpful.
