Monday Cute: Truffles the Guinea Pig Shatters His Own Previous World Record at the Long Jump

We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty

You probably think that’s a funny title I made up to go with this guinea pig video, but it’s not. Truffles, under the training of his fourteen-year-old owner Chloe, really did set the world record for Guinea Pig jumping (in distance, not height) in March. Since then many other Guinea pigs have entered the competition, jumping farther than his initial twelve inches. Truffles has stepped up to defend his title however, this time making it 18.9 inches.
