WHY does the Guinness World Records no longer list the world’s fattest animals?

The Guinness World Records contains a myriad of incredible entries: the world’s tallest man, the world’s shortest rivers, the heaviest tumor… However, several things cannot appear in the book.

Like, no more records related to diet and alcohol consumption are accepted: perhaps because the “Book” doesn’t want to get sued for doing something stupid and thereby harming itself.

The Guinness World Records once listed the world’s fattest fish, and after that, some fish owners started giving their pets too much food in an attempt to break the record – exactly the kind of behavior the Guinness World Records managers would like to avoid.
