Eve, a US model measuring 6 ft 9 in (about 205cm) is the cover of Australian men's magazine Zoo Weekly. This beauty appears on the cover of the magazine's recent issue alongside a 162cm-tall Australian model. "No other magazine has put a woman who's nearly 7ft tall on the cover," editor Paul Merrill said. "We had her bikini specially made, but it was worth it."

5. World's tallest horse meets smallest one

She may be standing in the shadows but one little horse is reaching heights of her own. At a mere 17 inches, the miniature brown mare known as Thumbelina takes pride in the lofty title of the World's Smallest Living Horse. Her companion, Radar, is a Belgian draught horse with his own big claim to fame - as the World's Tallest Living Horse.

6. World's shortest man meets shortest woman

Chandra Bahadur Dangi and Jyoti Amge were born 54 years and hundreds of miles apart in different countries, but it was their height that brought them together. Dangi, the world's shortest male, and Amge, the world's shortest female, met for the first time in 2012 with a little help from Guinness World Records.

Amge, who lives in Nagpur, India, was named the shortest living woman at 24.7 inches on Dec. 16, 2011, just after turning 18. Dangi, 72, stands at 21.5 inches tall and was crowned the shortest man in Guinness' 57-year history in February.

Mr. Pingping barely came up to Ms. Pankratova's knees at a bizarre photoshoot held to mark the launch of the 2008 Guinness Book of World Records. But the pair seemed rather happy in each other's company as they posed for photos on Trafalgar Square's steps in central London.

Traveler Tries to Smuggle Hummingbirds in His Trousers - Arrested!

If you were sat next to this airline passenger, you might understand why he was fidgeting around so much.
This Dutch traveler was caught trying to smuggle more than a dozen live hummingbirds in special pouches sewn into the inside of his underwear at Rochambeau airport in Cayenne, French Guiana. The birds were individually wrapped in cloth and taped up to prevent them from 'escaping' from their sweaty travel container.

But fortunately for the unfortunate birds authorities noticed the passenger acting suspiciously and he was detained by French customs officers. When his underwear was removed, officials discovered the haul of hummingbirds - who are not believed to have been sedated - lining the front. The man, who reportedly has a previous conviction for trying to smuggle the tiny creatures, was arrested. It is not clear if he has yet been charged.
