Q: What is bigger when new and grows smaller with use?

Q: What word becomes a palindrome (word that reads the same backwards and forwards) when viewed upside down and backwards?

Birds, beasts, trees, flowers,
Gnaws iron, bites steel,
Grinds hard stones to meal,
Slays kings, ruins towns,
And beats high mountains down.
