July 12 (UPI) -- A North Carolina guinea pig is officially a Guinness World Record holder after the record-keeping organization verified he successfully performed 16 tricks in one minute.
Gwen Ford said she received word from Guinness World Records on Tuesday that her pet, Coco, officially set the record for most tricks performed by a guinea pig in one minute.
"Gwen fostered and later adopted him from an animal shelter in December of 2018," Guinness World Records said. "Due to Coco's abundance of energy and curiosity, Gwen began training him through a trick certification program. He soon learned over 70 tricks and became a certified Trick Guinea Pig Champion."
