Although many have referred to him as a cow, Knickers is technically a steer. And boy is he thicc! Kinckers is an Australian cow who is six feet and three inches tall when standing on all fours. He weighs over 3,000 pounds. Apparently, Knickers is too large for any slaughterhouse to accommodate him, so he is set to live out the rest of his life on a feedlot.

On Twitter and other social media sites, people are taking a break from a chaotic news cycle to share their appreciation and amazement of this enormous cow. Notably, this is not the first time a cow meme has gone viral
