Dwarfing the German landscape and the two men trying to conquer it, it's the world's largest walking robot. The dragon is just one of a vast array of international record-breakers in the 2014 edition of the Guinness World Records book. Like the ridiculously small … and the alarmingly big. From the animal kingdom comes Happie the skateboarding goat, which rolled into the record books with the farthest distance skateboarded by a goat. Happie's owner Melody Cooke says success has turned her usually calm and sociable pet into a bit of a diva. SOUNDBITE: Melody Cooke, owner of Happie the skateboarding goat, saying (English): "She's still very friendly and stuff, but sometimes she has this attitude or this look in her eye - 'look at me, I'm a diva'." Fancy a cup of tea? Contortionist Leilani Franco holds three new back-breaking records, including the fastest backbend walk. SOUNDBITE: Leilani Franco, world record holder, saying (English): "Whenever I'm at a party, my friends are always like 'Leilani do a trick, show people what you can do' and I say 'ok' and then I do something really weird and everybody gets really shocked." So whether it's the fastest 100m in high heels or the world's smallest dog, Guinness World Records is jam-packed with top achievements - even if it means tolerating a spaced-out reading partner.
