GREEN BAY -- The largest rubber duck on planet Earth has arrived in Titletown, USA.

"Mama Duck" is in town as part of the Tall Ship Festival, and is floating alongside nine other ships taking part in the three-day event.

The duck is more than 60 feet tall, and weighs 11 tons - more than the heaviest elephant ever recorded. It even has a Facebook following, with more than 4,500 fans.

A "tall ship" is a large, traditionally rigged sailing vessel. Popular tall ships, according to TallShipGreenBay.com, include "topsail schooners, brigantines, brigs, and barques."

The festival runs August 5th through 7th. Get more information here.
