Life comes in all sizes: from the tiniest single-celled organism that is smaller than the edge of your finger nail, to the giant Sequoia tree, which can grow to over 300 ft in height! It is easy to measure the size of living animals, but how do paleontologists figure out how big extinct animals were? And, why do we care about the size of animals? Help us figure out the size of extinct animals and discover what else scientists can learn from body size.
