Records were made to be broken. Ask Skipper Blue, who recently annihilated the competition in the world of stacking-rings-on-sticks. Take that, whoever else is stacking stuff.
Skipper the macaw took on the hoopla challenge for Guinness World Records Day November 16 and nailed it. According to Guinness World Records, the Los Angeles parrot placed 19 rings on a target in one minute.
Trainer Wendy Horton prompted Skipper during the event while Guinness World Records adjudicator Sofia Greenacre timed it. Following the rules, Horton did not touch Skipper while she worked toward her goal.
“Skipper bounced up and down which can only be understood as she was very happy for this record!” Horton said after the successful attempt.
“Congratulations, Skipper — you are officially amazing!” Greenacre told the talented bird.
