Amazing Animals From Guinness World Records 2014

Do you remember grabbing a Guinness World Records book as a kid and being thoroughly amazed by what you found inside? There hasn’t been a kid I know who doesn’t gravitate towards those books, awaiting to be thrilled by what they are about to see. Even if they get their hands on an old edition, their eyes are still glued to the pages.

The newest edition, Guinness World Records 2014, which just came out this fall, continues the tradition of fun amazement.

Pet lovers will revel in the fact that the new edition includes some truly stunning animals and we are happy to bring you a snippet of the gorgeous animals included.

From a skateboarding goat (it’s true!) and a tightrope walking dog to the tallest dog and the biggest cat (a must-see!), these are incredible photos showcase the beauty of dogs, cats, goats, parrots, and more!
