Australian steer stands out in his field

Knickers definitely stands out from the herd

Then meet Knickers, a monstrous steer that towers over all of his peers at his farm in Myalup, Australia.

The farmer said he let Knickers live throughout the years because of his size but eventually realized, "he wasn't stopping growing", BBC News reported. But nobody - not even Knickers' owner in Western Australia - knows how he got so big, according to The Guardian.

Weighing in at 1,400kg (3,086lbs), Knickers is double the weight of your average Holstein Friesian steer, making him heavier than a Mini Cooper, a beluga whale or 9,300 potatoes.

Basking in the glory that is Knickers the cow, netizens have gone off the deep end, professing their love and general sense of shock over the giant steer.

Thanks to its size, the mammoth Knickers managed to stay out of the slaughterhouse due to the mere fact that he was too big to fit through the processing plant. He's literally too big to fit in the meat processors.

"He was always a standout steer from the others, a bit bigger than the rest", says Mr Pearson.

According to the record books, the tallest living steer is Bellino - who was 2.027m tall when he was measured in 2010 in Italy.

Mr Pearson said his herd of 20,000 had a high turnover and all the steers Knickers started with were sold or sent to the abattoir at least three years ago, but he would stick around for the rest of his days.

"We never thought he would turn into a big knickers", Pearson said. If he wants to go for a walk, they follow, if he wants to sit down, they wait around for him to get up.
