dolphin The Guinness Book of Records lists 54 year old Bao Xishun, a 7-feet-9 herdsman from Inner Mongolia, as the world’s tallest man. So, I am guessing that is how the vets in Beijing knew to call him and his 41.7 inch arms to the rescue when dophins swallowed plastic they could not remove with surgical instruments. The manager of the aquarium housing the dolphins told The Associated Press that the shape of the dolphins’ stomachs made it difficult to push an instrument very far in without hurting the animals. The herdsman brought the dolphins new meaning for the word bao which translates to mean “I am full” in Chinese.
