Leaping Llamas, it’s Caspa

CasperCaspa the llama has jumped himself into the Guinness World Records becoming the first llama to be awarded a high jump title!

Nine-year-old Caspa, from Porthmadog, Wales, cleared a high jump bar of 1.13 m (3 ft 8.5 in) beating the minimum requirement of one metre to become the first Llama to be awarded this record title.

Owner Sue Williams says her and Caspa have come a long way since Caspa joined her seven years ago. Then, Caspa used to kick and spit, but Sue as discovered this wasn’t because he was nasty, he was just misunderstood. Now, through positive reinforcement, they have built a lovely relationship based on trust.

Sue says Caspa’s a ‘total diva’ who loves jumping and hanging out with his llama friends on the farm as well as the dogs, goats and deer.

Caspa & Sue‘I’m extremely proud of Caspa,’ says Sue.

Caspa’s record is just one of hundreds included in the Guinness World Records 2017 Edition. For more information.
