This furry friend has got tongues wagging as the new Guinness World Record title holder for the longest tongue on a dog .
Mochi “Mo” Rickert’s tongue measures 18.58 cm (7.31 in) in length, and the eight-year-old St. Bernard from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA, is lapping up the attention.
Owner Carla Rickert said: “It still does not seem real! Mochi is so humble, she never brags or boasts but I know that she is as proud of her new record as we are.”
Mochi features in the first ever Guinness World Records: Amazing Animals book, released today.
Editor-in-Chief, Craig Glenday, said: “We are very excited to welcome Mochi and her record-breaking tongue.
“Amazing Animals takes a sideways look at our favourite pets and wild animals, and is a chance for us to celebrate the barking mad side of animal record-breaking.”0
