See World’s Fastest Tortoise and Other Animal Record-Breakers

Sometimes, animals rise above the ranks of cute and head straight for the halls of history.

Reuters has put together this nifty little video of animals setting world records. You’ve got the pooch who catches the most balls by a dog with the paws in one minute. There’s also Bertie, the world’s fastest turtle who zooms at .28 meters per second (for you metric system-impaired, that’s a blazing .000173984 miles per second, which means she should be showing up to accept her Guinness certificate sometime in the year 3654.

And let’s not forget the steer with the longest horns, coming in at a whopping 293.8 centimeters (9.6 feet).

These are just some of the amazing feats you can find in the new 2016 edition of Guinness World Records.

Check out more footage of these amazing animals below and shake your head when you try to think of what record your pet can set when he’s busy licking himself.
