fat tail is!explainable by any normal distribution

If I record the height of classmates, the histogram should fit a normal bell.

If I do this on Martians, we hit serious fat tail. Can we adjust the sigma value to fit this Martian distribution? Impossible, not even close. This distribution isn't Gaussian at all.
