From huge horses to bulging biceps, the latest and greatest record-breaking achievements of the universe have been announced.

It's official, Zeus the 3 year-old Great Dane is the tallest dog ever. The humongous hound is 111.8cm and weighs in at 70.3 kg. This and the other pics here are from the new Guinness World Records 2013 book.
Think you own the most amount of Barbies? Well you'd be wrong. Bettina Dorfmann from Germany has 15,000 of them! She has been collecting the dolls since 1993.
Meet Archie, the world's shortest Bull. He is only 76.2 cm tall!
The largest drum set in the world has 340 pieces! It is owned by Dr. Mark Temperato from the USA. We wouldn't like to be his neighbour!
Take a look at these bulging biceps. At 25.5cm, Mostafa Ismail from Egypt has the largest arms in the world. But unlike cartoon muscle-man Popeye, Mostafa says he can't stand spinach!
Meet Sam from Oklahoma, officially recognised as the tallest donkey in the world. The dazzling donkey towers over his owner at a massive 155.45 cm.

Fancy getting a new hair style? Try this one for size - the tallest Mohican measures 113.5 cm and belongs to Kazuhiro Watanabe from Japan.
She may not have an Olympic medal, but Johanna Quaas from Germany is still world-class. The 86 year-old has been named the world's oldest gymnast. A retired PE teacher, she took part in her first competition at the age of 56. Johanna says: 'I hope the record inspires others to realise it's never too late.'
This is the tallest living horse, Big Jake. The nine-year-old Belgian Gelding horse, who measured 20 hands (210.19 cm), lives in the USA.
