well, from personal experience, my Plakat female, Lulu, is way bigger than my other females. she's bigger than most of my males, in fact! i've never had a pure Plakat male, though, so i can't comment on them...

I have a plakat female, and she's definitely a lot bigger than my friend's CT female. However, age might be a factor. Hestia came from a sorority at a family-owned pet store, and Liberty the CT came from PetCo.

My plakat guy is definitely larger then my DT and HM. He's got a stockier body for sure. He doesn't seem longer then the others, just beefier. :P
