The human-like footprint was discovered in Gizhou, the southwestern province of China, in August last year.
Complete with toe imprints, the indent is 3cms deep, suggesting whatever caused the footprint was extremely heavy.
A rough way to estimate someone’s height by foot size is to find the length of the foot and times it by seven.
So, a 57cm foot print would belong to someone who is a staggering 399cm tall – just over 13 feet.
While giants are often dismissed as myths, some claim there is enough evidence to suggest they once existed.
In 1912, a four foot long fossilised foot imprint was discovered in South Africa.
The proposed owner of that print found in the town of Mpuluzu would have been up to 27 feet tall.
Also, the fossil was more than 200 million years old, which suggests that there was an ancient civilisation of giants.
The existence of giants has been theorized since the dawn of time by all civilizations, including in Norse, Greek, Indian, Mayan, Aztec and Inca mythology.
Even the Bible states giants once existed.
Genesis 6:4 of the King James Bible reads: “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”
