5 ounces is about one-twenty-five-thousandth as heavy as a Hippopotamus.
In other words, the weight of a Hippopotamus is 26,500 times that amount.
(Hippopotamus amphibius) (adult, male)
The average weight of an adult male hippopotamus ranges from 132,000 ounces. 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).
