I didn't have any shots that compared him to anything but I'd guess he was about 4 to 4 1/2 ft tall. Bigger than the usual ones I've seen around.

Very nice picture. I sure would hate to hit one of those with my car. I understand that is a problem in Australia like deer on the road here in the states.
