    I'll probably get myself in trouble for saying this, but this proves the hypothesis that critters further away from the equator are significantly taller than those nearest the equator. Bonnie is from the Pacidic Northwest, whereas Suzanne and Cindy are much further south and closer to the equator. That doesn't explain Sean, though. Lamarck might appreciate this one.

    Well, it is true I was born and raised in Alaska.. but around here I'm still considered remarkably tall.. especialy for a girl. Most the women I meet in Alaska are closer to 5' 2" to 5' 6" ... and the guys aren't much taller on average..
    I had heard that theory though..

    In all seriousness, the closer you get to the equator, the more colorful (reds, yellows, purples) and smaller are the living critters. Toward the poles the living critters are larger and less colorful (grays, browns). These are tendencies and I'm sure someone can find the exception to the rule. I have heard the the deer in the southern US are smaller than those up north.

    Hence why Alaska's bears and moose are much larger than those found down south I suppose...

    You also see this phenomenon with aquatic life - whales, sharks, as opposed to the livebearers and tetras on either side of the equator.

    Why are you fainting Dino? Are you that much taller then me? If you are wow you must be tall,as your 2 years younger then me. Lol.Amanda(patient I beacame a friend with at the hospital) is 18 and I look like a giant next to her! I`d say she`s probably `bout 5 foot.
