In November 2021, this small (but larger than life) player won the most basketball slam dunks in 30 seconds by a guinea pigwith a number of 4 slam dunks.
Molly is a little brown guinea pig who lives in Dombóvár, Hungary, with her owner Emma Müller.
“Molly loves to play basketball,” her owner says of Molly’s passion for sports and being active.
For anyone watching the adorable video of Molly’s attempt, it’s clear the little guinea pig is fixated on a goal, running back and forth to rack up slam dunks and racing against the clock to beat a world record.
But, for Molly, it’s good fun and time spent with her mother playing pranks.
Most importantly, while playing, Molly gets new stimuli and that important exercise that little guinea pigs need to live happy lives.
Seeing this domestic cavy running around and interacting with its mother will surely put a smile on your face, but it’s also a reminder that these animals are active and full of energy, and not meant to live in a cage.
And though it’s all just a game for little Molly, she rose to the challenge and the Guinness World Records title.
The setup included a set of small plastic spheres 4.4cm in diameter, distance indicators and a small basket for Molly to perform her tricks.
Although Emma was thrilled with the result, four wasn’t Molly’s best result on the basketball court to date. According to her, some days Molly can do as many as eight slam dunks in thirty seconds.
However, four was more than enough to make Molly OFFICIALLY AMAZING™!
We can’t wait to see if this adorable record holder will break her own record or take on other challenges in the future.
In the meantime, let’s review some of our favorite animal discs that are too cute to handle.
Bless the rabbit
Still on the basketball court, Bini the rabbit has been a champion since 2016.
Rabbits are much smarter and faster than people think, and Bini’s father, Shai Asor (USA), wanted to prove it.
Thanks to many hours of play and incredible skills (and, one can only imagine, a lot of carrots!), Bini broke the record of most basketball slam dunks in a minute by a rabbitlining up 7 slam dunks!
The Holland Lop rabbit achieved this incredible goal in California, USA on October 31, 2016.
This particular record served as the predecessor and example for Molly’s attempt, and the two rodents now share the podium of adorable GWR basketball records.
His trainer, Shai Asor, is incredibly proud of Bini and has discovered that the bunny’s talents are far from limited to the world of sport.
Although Bini surely likes to shoot hoops, give him a paintbrush, a white canvas and some colored shades to play with and he’ll create a masterpiece.
The unlikely friendship between Bengal cat Sashimi and Boston terrier Lollipop is unbreakable, fun, and record-breaking.
The duo is inseparable and you may see them walking around together.
Their scooter adventure started as an impromptu ride, much to the surprise of their owner, but it quickly turned into an incredible skill.
On September 19, 2020, together, they smash the record for 5m fastest on a scooter by a dog and a cat (couple) with a time of 4.37 seconds and became starts of Guinness World Records 2022.
They live in Ontario, Canada, with their mother and trainer Melissa Millet and their furry siblings.
But Sashimi and Lollipop aren’t the only record holders in Melissa’s house.
Jellybean is a beautiful, intelligent and lively 4 year old puppy. Like his brother Lollipop, he is deaf.
However, he didn’t let his condition stop him from becoming a real star!
Jellybean broke two records: most bounces of a basketball between a human and a dog in 30 seconds (21) and 5m fastest in pushing a basketball by a dog (10.31 seconds)
Many deaf or disabled dogs are abandoned or put to sleep due to the mistaken assumption that they cannot be trained.
However, Lollipop and Jellybean prove this statement wrong every day and are ambassadors for the adoption of deaf or disabled puppies around the world.
