Girls can dwarf boys.

As with most kinds of anglerfish, when a male fanfin seadevil finds a mate, he latches onto her with his teeth. Over time, his half inch body merges with her eight inch body, and their circulatory systems fuse. When the female is ready to spawn, she has sperm readily available.

And the biggest animal in the world is a girl.
