You might think that there are not many things that are 7 feet long, but you would be surprised.
A shockingly large number of items in the world come in at just about 7 feet in length. The metrics are used in most countries in the world to estimate the length of several other things.
Thus, it can be unclear what things measure 7 feet and how they compare to our standard units.
Luckily, we made a list of common things that measure 7 feet so that you can easily relate to things you come across every day. Read to find out.
1. Giraffes Neck
Giraffes are among the tallest mammals on earth, and their neck can grow up to 7 feet. The average weight of giraffes is 1750-2800 lbs.
Thus, it’s not only tall but also heavy. But did you know that the giraffe can live up to 25 years and has three hearts?
Their two lesser hearts pump blood to the gills, and the other is the central heart which pumps blood to the rest of the body.
2. The Nile Crocodile
Mature female Nile crocodiles grow up to 7 feet (2.19 m) in length and weigh around 250 kg.
They are considered to be the second-largest species of all time and live mainly in Africa. The male ones grow up to between 8 and 9 feet in length and weigh 414 kgs. However, some species can grow up to 20 feet in length and weigh 1089 kgs.
Another interesting fact about these animals is that they never run out of teeth! Yes, you heard it right; they constantly make new ones throughout their lifespan.
3. Leatherback Sea Turtle Shell
Leatherback sea turtles are considered the largest turtles on earth. Their shells measure 1.8-2.2 meters which is around 7 feet.
There is, however, a huge leatherback sea turtle that recorded a length of 10 feet which is about 350cm. It weighed 916 kg which is more than what an average human can lift.
4. Pool Table
Pool tables come in different sizes, shapes, and lengths. A standard pool table is usually measured at around 7 feet or 2.1 meters. There are also some that measure 9 feet or 8 feet. Pool tables are rectangular in shape and are the most common indoor door games to find in a household
Kangaroos are the largest marsupials in the world. They have a very muscular tail, large feet, and strong legs for jumping.
The giant kangaroo recorded a length of 2.1m (7 feet) tall and weighed 91 kgs. However, an average kangaroo measures about 0.8 to 1.8 meters. Interestingly, the male ones are usually larger than the females.
6. Human beings
The average height of a human is between 170-180cm. However, statistics show that there are 85-150 people in the Us who are 7 feet tall.
The twin called Robert Wallow was the tallest man on earth who measured 8 feet to 11 feet tall (27.2m).
7. The Atlantic Bluefin Tuna
The Atlantic blue finfish is found in the temperate waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
It has become very popular over time as it can weigh up to 680 kgs and measure up to 10feets. But the average length of the tuna is 7-15 feet and weighs 550lbs.

The list of things that are 7 feet long is much longer than you might expect.
It’s also not all about height as there are plenty of objects, like the neck of a giraffe, pool table, or even some humans, that measure precisely seven feet.
This blog post has given examples to illustrate how many different items can be found on this list.
The dimension of stuff has been an interest of mine ever since I was a child. What I believe is most fascinating about the dimension of stuff is how extremely long, tall and wide some objects are both on earth and in the universe.
