I read this sentence in a book by Reading A-Z.

Bald eagles’ wings stretch wider than a bathtub is long.

I wonder if it means bald eagles’ wings are wider than the length of a bathtub.

Many thanks in advance.

    Yes. By stretch, he means when they put their wings to their maximum length. When stretched, the wingspan is longer than a bathtub.
