The fascination about giants, their origins and how to explain them has existed for a long time. Some of them are described as being 30 or 40 feet high.
The following story was published in the Miami News in 1905.
The past was more prolific in the production of giants than the present. In 1830 one of these giants, who was exhibited at Rouen was ten feet high, and the giant Galabra, brought from Arabia to Rome in the time of Claudius Caesar, was the same height. Fannuni, who lived in the time of Eugene II, was eleven and one-half feet in height.
