Bertie The Fastest Tortoise In The West (Well, North East)
A tortoise from Durham's made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for being the fastest in the world.
Bertie, who lives at Adventure Valley, sped across the finish line of an 18 foot uphill track in under 20 seconds.
He smashed the old record of 43.7 seconds, set by a tortoise called Charlie in 1977!
His owner, Marco Calzini, said:
"Bertie now lives in a luxury enclosure with his girlfriend Shelly and his Guinness World Records certificate proudly displayed on the wall.
To be in the book is a dream come true, a massive achievement!''
Bertie's record is part of the new 2016 roundup of records, which also include the longest hair on a rabbit, which has been measured as 36.5 cm (14.37 inches) and belongs to two-year-old English Angora rabbit Franchesca from California.
