Watch This 12-Second Video of a Guinea Pig Breaking a World Record

We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty


Get ready, we have some highly important world record news for you! Truffles the guinea pig, who belongs to 13-year-old Chloe Macari of Fife, Scotland, has officially broken the world record for a guinea pig jump by jumping a distance of 12 inches. The previous record was shattered — shattered, we tell you! — by a whopping four inches. Macari was prompted to train Truffles once she saw how relatively short that jump was. (Eight inches? Pssssht.) And Truffles seemed happy to take on the challenge, especially once his favorite food, cucumber, was involved as a prize. The jump, which took place on February 21, was accepted by Guinness World Records, which makes it officially official. Congratulations to Truffles and his human, Chloe!

Note: This record was only concerned with distance, not height. So let’s stay tuned to see if Truffles starts reaching for the skies!
