Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about four-fifths as heavy as a Dalmatian.
In other words, 6,000 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.791 times the weight of a Dalmatian, and the weight of a Dalmatian is 1.26 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Dalmatinac, a.k.a. Carriage Dog, a.k.a. Spotted Coach Dog, a.k.a. Firehouse Dog) (FCI standard; male)
The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) calls for Dalmatians to weigh between 7,590 fluid drams (ʒ). The association of the breed with fire departments (and similarly with Budweiser Beer and its team of Clydesdales) stems from their affinity for horses, having been used historically as carriage dogs capable of guiding horse-drawn fire engines to the sites of blazes.
It's about half as heavy as a Toilet.
In other words, 6,000 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.535 times the weight of a Toilet, and the weight of a Toilet is 1.87 times that amount.
(KOHLER Round front sitting flush toilet, model #K-11471-0)
The weight of a typical round front sitting flush toilet is 11,200 fluid drams (ʒ). The Indian town of Musiri in Tamil Nadu state features the world's only paying toilet, which rewards its users up to 10¢ Indian (10 paisas) per visit and uses the waste for compost and fertilizer.
It's about one-and-nine-tenths times as heavy as a Gold Bar.
In other words, 6,000 fluid drams (ʒ) is 1.875 times the weight of a Gold Bar, and the weight of a Gold Bar is 0.5333333333 times that amount.
(London Good Delivery bar)
A "London Good Delivery" gold bar — the variety commonly held by Central Banks — should weigh 3,200 fluid drams (ʒ). The largest gold bar ever produced was minted by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation (a sibling company of the auto manufacturer) in 2005 and weighed 64,301.49314 fluid drams (ʒ).
It's about half as heavy as an Octopus.
In other words, 6,000 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.47 times the weight of an Octopus, and the weight of an Octopus is 2.1 times that amount.
(for Giant Pacific Octopus, Enteroctopus) (Adult, average)
The adult North Pacific Giant Octopus usually weighs around 13,000 fluid drams (ʒ). It is the largest octopus species and is known for its considerable intelligence, including the ability to open jars, solve mazes, and mimic other octopuses.
It's about three times as heavy as a Dachshund.
In other words, the weight of a Dachshund is 0.3 times 6,000 fluid drams (ʒ).
(a.k.a. "Wiener dog", a.k.a. Teckel, a.k.a. Dackel, a.k.a. "hot dog dog", a.k.a. "sausage dog", a.k.a. "doxie") (FCI standard; standard size)
The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) calls for dachshunds to weigh about 2,000 fluid drams (ʒ). Despite of their small size, a 2008 survey conducted by the University of Pennsylvania named dachshunds as the most aggressive dog breed.
It's about three-and-a-half times as heavy as a Bowling Ball.
In other words, 6,000 fluid drams (ʒ) is 3.42857143 times the weight of a Bowling Ball, and the weight of a Bowling Ball is 0.291666667 times that amount.
(most common selection among male bowlers)
With an allowable range of 1,283.33333 fluid drams (ʒ), the most-preferred bowling ball weight among adult, male bowlers is 1,750 fluid drams (ʒ). Because regulation balls measure the same diameter irrespective of their weight, ball density varies by size and balls weighing less than about 1,286.02986 fluid drams (ʒ) will float in water.
It's about one-fourth as heavy as a Kangaroo.
In other words, 6,000 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.27 times the weight of a Kangaroo, and the weight of a Kangaroo is 3.7 times that amount.
(for red kangaroo, Macropus rufus) (adult, male)
An adult, male red kangaroo weighs up to 22,000 fluid drams (ʒ). Fantastic jumpers, red kangaroos can leap horizontally 9 m (30 ft) and vertically 3 m (9 ft) in a single bound.
