World's Tallest Man Uses Long Arms to Save Dolphins


The world's tallest man has put his long arms to good use and saved the lives of two dolphins at an aquarium in Fushun, Liaoning Province. Bao Xishun, a herdsman from inner Mongolia, stands nearly eight feet tall. The dolphins had ingested plastic from the edge of their tank and are reportedly in good condition.

Very resourceful on the aquarium's part, I must say.

  4. So long, Buck Angel.

    I'm picturing Bao Xishu as the star attraction of the "performances" at this year's SAL Black Party.

  5. They simply were being pragmatic. They dont have any fancy equipment in that neck of the woods, and definitely not in Liaoning Province.

    Thank you for bringing the story to us.
