It's about one-two-thousand-five-hundredth as heavy as a Grizzly Bear.
In other words, 57 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.000425 times the weight of a Grizzly Bear, and the weight of a Grizzly Bear is 2,350 times that amount.
(a.k.a. brown bear, a.k.a. silver bear, Ursus arctos horribilis) (Adult, male, coastal area population average)
An adult, male grizzly bear from a coastal area (where food is plentiful) can weigh up to 134,000 fluid drams (ʒ). In spite of their tremendous size, grizzly bears can run at speeds of up to 55 kph (34 mph).
It's about one-two-thousand-five-hundredth as heavy as The Heart of a Blue Whale.
In other words, the weight of The Heart of a Blue Whale is 3,000 times 57 fluid drams (ʒ).
(Balaenoptera musculus) (adult)
The heart of a blue whale weighs about 200,000 fluid drams (ʒ). These hearts pump an estimated 7,100 L (1,875 gal) of blood through the whale's massive body.
It's about one-three-thousandth as heavy as a Cow.
In other words, 57 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.00033 times the weight of a Cow, and the weight of a Cow is 3,000 times that amount.
(for Holstein, a.k.a. Holstein Friesian, a.k.a. Friesian, Bos primigenius) (adult, heifer)
A mature Holstein cow (the well-known black-and-white, spotted breed of cow) typically weighs 170,000 fluid drams (ʒ). President William Howard Taft (1909 - 1913) kept a Holstein cow named Pauline Wayne on the White House grounds — a gift from a Wisconsin senator and the source of the First Family's milk.
It's about one-seven-thousand-five-hundredth as heavy as a Car.
In other words, 57 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.0001341 times the weight of a Car, and the weight of a Car is 7,457 times that amount.
(for 2009 Ford Taurus; automatic transmission; curb weight)
A 2009 Ford Taurus weighs 424,900 fluid drams (ʒ). The first mass-produced car, the Curved Dash Oldsmobile — introduced in 1901 — weighed just 99,280 fluid drams (ʒ).
It's about 7,500 times as heavy as a Grain of Rice.
In other words, the weight of a Grain of Rice is 0.00013 times 57 fluid drams (ʒ).
(long grain; 14% moisture content)
A single long grain of rice weighs an average of 0.0075 fluid drams (ʒ). A staple through most of human history, archaeological evidence indicates that the earliest rice cultivation was about 11,500 years ago.
It's about one-nine-thousandth as heavy as a Rhinoceros.
In other words, 57 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.00011 times the weight of a Rhinoceros, and the weight of a Rhinoceros is 9,100 times that amount.
(for Black rhinoceros, Diceros bicornis) (Adult, male)
An adult black rhinoceros weighs between 540,000 fluid drams (ʒ). Rhinoceros are extremely aggressive — nearly one of every two males will die as a result of fighting with other rhinoceros.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as heavy as a Giraffe.
In other words, the weight of a Giraffe is 11,000 times 57 fluid drams (ʒ).
(Giraffa camelopardalis reticulata) (adult, male)
An adult, male giraffe weighs an average of 640,000 fluid drams (ʒ). Reaching 5.5 m (18 ft) in height by adulthood, giraffe calves can grow as much as 3 cm (1 in) per day.
