the largest "skeleton" ever found may not have been found yet. The largest known ones, who are alive, would make the news or the tabloids.
There could be larger humans in unknown and primative areas where no one in the real world ever knows they exist or did exist before their death..............

by largest do you mean height or weight?

dhsindy:
is correct on height but this guy only weighed 490 pounds.

here is a guy who at one time weight close to 1400 pounds.

Thanks experts for your valuable comments. I actually heard about the highest and most weight person / people in the world.

How ever i am surfing in the net and searching scientifically proved facts about the largest (longest) Human skeleton ever found. That may be the case nickg5 mentioned, which may be not found yet. I would like to know if we had giant's in primitive areas of human evaluation. (according to history books, this is not true, primitive  humans are much smaller than us. but i am curious about that)

How ever, i wonder is their any valid news available in the net. Comments are welcome. Points are open!
