Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-nine-thousandth as heavy as The Tongue of a Blue Whale
In other words, 34.70 shekels ( שקלים) is 0.0001 times the weight of The Tongue of a Blue Whale, and the weight of The Tongue of a Blue Whale is 9,100 times that amount.
(Balaenoptera musculus) (adult)
The tongue of a Blue Whale can weigh up to 320,000 shekels ( שקלים). Despite their tremendous size, blue whales feed almost exclusively on tiny crustaceans called krill and cannot swallow anything much larger than a beach ball.
It's about one-fifteen-thousandth as heavy as a Hippopotamus
In other words, 34.70 shekels ( שקלים) is 0.000076 times the weight of a Hippopotamus, and the weight of a Hippopotamus is 13,000 times that amount.
(Hippopotamus amphibius) (adult, male)
The average weight of an adult male hippopotamus ranges from 450,000 shekels ( שקלים). 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).
It's about 15,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Rice
In other words, 34.70 shekels ( שקלים) is 14,000 times the weight of a Grain of Rice, and the weight of a Grain of Rice is 0.000071 times that amount.
(conventional; US; long-, medium-, and short-gran varieties; uncooked)
With great differences in variety, the average among a sampling of common short-, medium- and long-grain rices finds that a single grain weighs about 0.0025 shekels ( שקלים) before cooking. 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-twenty-thousandth as heavy as an Elephant
In other words, 34.70 shekels ( שקלים) is 0.000048 times the weight of an Elephant, and the weight of an Elephant is 21,000 times that amount.
(for African bush elephant, Loxodonta africana) (Adult, bull)
A bull African bush elephant weighs about 730,000 shekels ( שקלים). Among African elephants, both males and females have tusks (whereas female Asian elephants, Elephas maximus, do not have tusks) which can grow to 3 m (10 ft) and typically weigh about 480,000 shekels ( שקלים)
It's about one-twenty-thousandth as heavy as a Tyrannosaurus rex
In other words, 34.70 shekels ( שקלים) is 0.000045 times the weight of a Tyrannosaurus rex, and the weight of a Tyrannosaurus rex is 22,000 times that amount.
(for FMNH PR2081, a.k.a. "Sue") (a.k.a. Tyrannosaurus, a.k.a. T-Rex) (estimated live weight)
The notable Tyrannosaurus specimen housed at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, Illinois, "Sue," is estimated to have weighed about 770,000 shekels ( שקלים) while alive. A renowned predator in popular culture, the teeth of tyrannosaurus rex were up to 33.02 cm (13 in) long.
It's about one-forty-thousandth as heavy as an Anchor of a Cruise Ship
In other words, 34.70 shekels ( שקלים) is 0.0000255 times the weight of an Anchor of a Cruise Ship, and the weight of an Anchor of a Cruise Ship is 39,200 times that amount.
(for QE2 forward anchor, a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)
Each of the forward anchors of the RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 weighs 1,360,000 shekels ( שקלים). The anchor of the QE2 now sits in front of the Holyrood Church in Southampton, England, United Kingdom, along a pedestrian tourist route known as "the QE2 mile."
It's about 65,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Sand
In other words, 34.70 shekels ( שקלים) is 66,000 times the weight of a Grain of Sand, and the weight of a Grain of Sand is 0.000015 times that amount.
(medium grain)
With tremendous variety in the size of grain and the component material, grains of sand weigh an average of 0.00053 shekels ( שקלים). In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 15.10 m (49.55 ft) in height.
