In other words, 3,200,000,000 miligrams is 0.853 times the weight of a Hippopotamus, and the weight of a Hippopotamus is 1.17 times that amount.
(Hippopotamus amphibius) (adult, male)
The average weight of an adult male hippopotamus ranges from 3,750,000,000 miligrams. Appearances to the contrary, adult hippos cannot swim or float in water; they actually move by leaping and walking across lake bottoms at about 8 kph (5 mph).
It's about one-and-one-fifth times as heavy as The Tongue of a Blue Whale.

(Balaenoptera musculus) (adult)
The tongue of a Blue Whale can weigh up to 2,700,000,000 miligrams. Despite their tremendous size, blue whales feed almost exclusively on tiny crustaceans called krill and cannot swallow anything much larger than a beach ball.
It's about one-and-three-tenths times as heavy as a Giraffe.
In other words, the weight of a Giraffe is 0.77 times 3,200,000,000 miligrams.

(for Black rhinoceros, Diceros bicornis) (Adult, male)
An adult black rhinoceros weighs between 2,100,000,000 miligrams. Rhinoceros are extremely aggressive — nearly one of every two males will die as a result of fighting with other rhinoceros.
It's about one-and-nine-tenths times as heavy as a Car.
In other words, 3,200,000,000 miligrams is 1.937 times the weight of a Car, and the weight of a Car is 0.5163 times that amount.
(for 2009 Ford Taurus; automatic transmission; curb weight)
A 2009 Ford Taurus weighs 1,652,000,000 miligrams. The first mass-produced car, the Curved Dash Oldsmobile — introduced in 1901 — weighed just 386,000,000 miligrams.
It's about half as heavy as a Tyrannosaurus rex.
In other words, the weight of a Tyrannosaurus rex is 2 times 3,200,000,000 miligrams.
(for FMNH PR2081, a.k.a. "Sue") (a.k.a. Tyrannosaurus, a.k.a. T-Rex) (estimated live weight)
The notable Tyrannosaurus specimen housed at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, Illinois, "Sue," is estimated to have weighed about 6,400,000,000 miligrams while alive. A renowned predator in popular culture, the teeth of tyrannosaurus rex were up to 33.02 cm (13 in) long.
It's about two-fifths as heavy as an Elephant.
In other words, 3,200,000,000 miligrams is 0.4259 times the weight of an Elephant, and the weight of an Elephant is 2.348 times that amount.
(for African bush elephant, Loxodonta africana) (Adult, bull)
A bull African bush elephant weighs between 7,514,000,000 miligrams. Among African elephants, both males and females have tusks (female Asian elephants lack tusks) which can grow to 3 m (10 ft) and weigh up to 90,000,000 miligrams.
