In other words, 2,100,000 grams is 1.09 times the weight of a Giraffe, and the weight of a Giraffe is 0.9170 times that amount.
(Giraffa camelopardalis reticulata) (adult, male, maximum of range)
An adult, male giraffe can weigh up to 1,930,000 grams. Reaching 5.5 m (18 ft) in height by adulthood, giraffe calves can grow as much as 3 cm (1 in) per day.
It's about one-and-one-fourth times as heavy as a Car.
In other words, 2,100,000 grams is 1.2710 times the weight of a Car, and the weight of a Car is 0.78680 times that amount.
(for 2009 Ford Taurus; automatic transmission; curb weight)
A 2009 Ford Taurus weighs 1,652,000 grams. The first mass-produced car, the Curved Dash Oldsmobile — introduced in 1901 — weighed just 386,000 grams.
It's about four-fifths as heavy as The Tongue of a Blue Whale.

(Hippopotamus amphibius) (adult, male)
The average weight of an adult male hippopotamus ranges from 3,750,000 grams. Appearances to the contrary, adult hippos cannot swim or float in water; they actually move by leaping and walking across lake bottoms at about 8 kph (5 mph).
