The Greatest Size Differential in the World

Two Great Danes and a baby Chihuahua next to each other in line at the pet store.

The morphological difference between these two breeds of dogs is the largest inter-species size differential in the animal world

"largest inter-species size differential in the animal world"

Out of curiosity, what are the qualifications on that? I would have thought the species of anglerfish where the male is so much smaller than the female would beat this for inter-species size difference. I'm not a scientist so please forgive my confusion, I'm just curious.

The difference between a male and female angler fish is 1:10. The difference between a Great Dane and a very small Chihuahua can 1:125.
