The Tallest People Around

With all the talk lately about midgets, dwarfs, and little people, I figured I might as well fill folks in on the tallest ladies and gents roaming the globe. Now, for the purposes of this list I chose people who are all currently alive, so please don’t write in bitching about my not including Andre the Giant or some other deceased tall person: Andre the Giant has shuffled off this mortal coil, so leave it alone. Anyway, Here are a bunch of the tallest currently breathing people found around the world.

sudanese 75x75Sudan Tribes of Africa – Tallest Race

In the case of some Sudanese tribes, males can have an average height of 6 foot, 4 inches, while women of 6 foot. These people have slim but strong bodies, and their heads are more elongated than in the case of the typical African Blacks. In case of a mixed race, these huge heights may not be generally attained by the population.
