TOO BEEFY FOR BURGERS: Giant steer won't go to slaughterhouse

It's possible Knickers secreted too much growth hormone at 2 or 3 years of age, before he reached adulthood, which could explain why he's as tall as an SUV - for instance, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, as Twitter user Lanre Aliyu pointed out.

Thanks to its size, the mammoth Knickers managed to stay out of the slaughterhouse due to the mere fact that he was too big to fit through the processing plant.

Pearson later told the BBC that Knickers got his name as a result of his friendship with another cow named "Bra".

The 194cm Holstein Friesian was purchased by a West Australian farmer last month as a "coach" for other cattle.

Knickers the steer is huge on the internet - for being huge.

"He was always a standout steer from the others, a bit bigger than the rest", Pearson furthered. He's literally too big to fit in the meat processors.

Knickers' huge size would affect his life expectancy, but Mr Pearson thinks he has a few good years left and so far didn't need any special looking after as long as he had enough food and water. He's a hit with the other cattle, who follow him around the paddocks in their hundreds.

The Australian bovine chewed his way into the conversation when images recently circulated of him standing next to a herd of brown wagyu cattle.

And where did the name come from?

"When he was young, when we first got him, we had a Brahman steer [a breed of cattle] which was a friend of his", he said.

"We all know when Knickers is on the move", he added.

"We never thought he would turn into a big knickers".
