MELBOURNE - Sean Murphy, a pet store employee is trying to set a Guinness World Record for holding Madagascar hissing cockroaches in his mouth for 10 seconds.
It will be part of the Halloween Spectacular at Preuss Pets, Lansing, Michigan, in the US, where Murphy works.
“To raise money for the nature centre is even better,” The Daily Telegraph quoted Murphy as saying.
And the money raised will be used toward building a new river outlook for educating classes at the Harris Nature Centre.
The official Guinness World Record for this attempt is six cockroaches, and Sean hoped to officially double that by putting 12 of the insects in his mouth.
“We knew we could turn it into something useful and helpful,” according to Rick Preuss, store manager of Preuss Pets. (ANI)
