Jeison Hernandez has stomped his way into the Guinness World Records book — literally. The 20-year-old Venezuelan’s size 26 feet are now on the books as the largest feet on a living person, measuring in at 40.1cm (15.8in), for the right foot, and 39.6cm (15.6in) for the left.
He’s joined in the 2016 edition of the popular book by a speedy tortoise, the person with the most teeth in the world, a goalkeeping dog, the world’s tallest married couple, a fluffy rabbit, and the fastest humans on the face of the planet… wearing clogs or ski boots.
Launched in 1955, the iconic record book has sold over than 134 million copies and the million e-books, has also been translated into 21 languages, and is on sale in more than 100 countries.
“By providing a mix of the newest, most amazing records and a splash of the classic titles that readers know and love, the 2016 edition is a great cross-section of humanity’s greatest accomplishments,” said Editor-in-chief Craig Glenday.
The Fastest Tortoise Alive.
South African leopard tortoise Bertie has dashed his way onto the record book by sprinting 0.28 meters a second, or 0.6 miles per hour. It might not sound like much, but it makes him the fastest turtle ever, smashing the previous record that’s been in place since 1977.
The Most Teeth in the World.
Vijay Kumar of Bangalore, India now officially has the most teeth in the mouth in the world. With 37 teeth, he has five more than the average human mouth.
The Best Goalkeeping Dog.
Nine-year-old Beagle Purin from Chiba, Japan has caught 14 balls with his paws in one minute, breaking the previous record of 11.
The Tallest Married Couple.
Sun Mingming, 33, and his wife Xu Yan, 29, are officially the tallest married couple in the world. The Beijing lovebirds measure 7-feet 8.98-inches, and 6-feet, 1.74-inches respectively.
The Fluffiest Bunny.
The vast majority of women (96% as revealed by a Wayne State University survey) remove their body hair, but bunnies have no such impulses, and let their coats grow wild and free. No other rabbit, though, has a coat like two-year-old English Angora rabbit Franchesca from California, which measured 36.5 centimeters (14.37 inches).
The Fastest 100-Meters in Strange Footwear.
Andre Ortolf likes to run in things that one normally wouldn’t run in. The 21-year-old from Augsburg, Germany has claimed the record for the fastest 100-meters wearing ski boots, doing it in 17.65 seconds, and clip-clopped 100 meters in 16.27 seconds wearing clogs.
