On 5 October 2008, at the Diaoshuilou Waterfall of Jingbo lake, Mudanjiang City, China he jumped 12.19 m (39.99 ft)! To this day, his record still stands (who’d be mad enough to try a higher jump?) See him take the plunge below:

Have a look at Archie. He’s a bull and he’s one of the smallest animals on Earth. Why would we classify a bull along with other tiny animals?

10. World’s Tallest Dog

And here’s Zeus! The world’s tallest dog… he stands 44 inches tall from foot to withers, making Zeus the same size as an average donkey… The gigantic hound weighs a whopping 155 pounds and devours about 12 cups of food per day, which is equivalent to an entire 30-pound bag of food.
