guinness world records

MINI-HORSE These are some small shoes to fill—horseshoes, that is. Twenty-two inches tall at the shoulders, Bombel is the smallest living male horse. That’s less than half the size of a baseball bat. Bombel is tiny, but there’s an even tinier female horse: Thumbelina, who’s five inches shorter. MOVING TOILET Is your toilet running? Colin Furze’s is! The world’s fastest motorized toilet can travel up to nearly 54 miles an hour. The contraption is actually a scooter outfitted with a motorcycle engine. Furze sits on a toilet and steers the vehicle with the scooter’s handlebars. Wonder which he uses to get his fellow motorists’ attention: honks or flushes? HAIR STANDS STRAIGHT UP This is one hair-raising guy! Kazuhiro Watanabe of Japan holds the record for the tallest Mohawk, measuring more than three and a half…

1 SUIT OF ARMOR Don’t mess with this distant relative of the armadillo, which lived about two and a half million to 10,000 years ago. About the size of a small car, Glyptotherium had a serious shield against predators: its superhard shell. It also had a powerful tail it could swing like a club. 2 DEADLY BITE Thylacoleo, the largest known carnivorous mammal in Australia, went extinct about 45,000 years ago. The predator had sharp teeth and a powerful bite, and though it ran on four legs, it might have been able to stand on two. The creature was also a marsupial; newborns developed in their mothers’ pouches. 3 TINY PRIMATE Weighing just one ounce, Tinimomys was so little it could’ve sat on the end of your nose. Tinier than the smallest primates alive today,…

amazing animals

ALPACA “SHOPS” FOR GLASSES Hennebont, France When an alpaca strolled into an eyeglass store, it made a real spectacle. (Get it?) The local animal had wandered away from its nearby home before entering the whooshing doors of the glasses shop. “The alpaca seemed fascinated by all the mirrors and colorful posters,” says Pierre-Yves Nicolas, a photographer who snapped pics of the fleecy browser. The alpaca’s body language, like its wide-open eyes and forward-facing ears, show that it was feeling alert and curious—not frightened, says Nikki Maticic, an alpaca keeper at Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington, D.C. Employees at the shop quickly locked the doors as the alpaca browsed the selection for about half an hour. Soon the animal was picked up by the local police and taken home—without a new pair of alpaca-size eyeglasses. —Kitson Jazynka Cockatoo Makes…
