Pets in the News: World Record Keepers

It is so amazing to see how different animals in the animal kingdom can be, and Bing Videos has put together a list of some of the most interesting of the bunch. All of the following animals are world record keepers!

Giant George, a Great Dane, is the world’s tallest dog. He stands 43 inches tall. How would you like to feed and clean up after a dog that size?

At the other end of the spectrum is Boo Boo, the world’s smallest dog. She stands only 4 inches tall! How would you even find this sweet girl among her toys?

Boo Boo is in good company with Thumbelina, the world’s smallest horse. Thumbelina stands 17.5 inches tall and weighs just 57 pounds.

Can you guess how old is the world’s oldest tortoise? Would you believe 250 years old? A tortoise named Addwaitya holds that record.

And finally, maybe the funniest of the world’s record keepers – Jack, who sports the world’s longest ears! Jack’s ears stretch 1.09 feet long.

Who is your favorite world record keeper?
