[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There is a great sexual dimorphism in size, with the males being much larger than the females. While the females average about 680 kg (1,500 lb) and 3 m (10 feet) long, the bulls grow to around 3636 kg (8,000 lb) and 6.36 m (21 feet) long. The record bull, shot in Possession Bay, South Georgia in 1913, was 5,000 kg (11,000 lb) and 6.9 m (22.5 feet) long.
