Chilli the Giant Cow: Going for the Record Books!

There are supersized meals and SUVs, and now there's a supersized giant cow that's shooting for the Guinness book of world records. Chilli is six feet, six inches tall and its owner is trying to get this giant cow recognized by the Guinness folks at the tallest cow Britain has ever seen.

The nine-year-old Chilli, a black-and-white Friesian, weighs a ton and is larger than most horses, and the size of a small elephant. And yes it's Chilli, not Chili, the cow.

You can find photos of this humongous bovine here.

While the British press refers to Chilli as a "cow," a bullock is a word used to describe a bull. So it's unclear as to whether this is a giant cow or a giant bull. Maybe the Brits use "cow" to describe both male and female?
