Meet Mochi the 4 year old female St. Bernard from South Dakota in USA who has just been awarded the official record for WORLD’S LONGEST TONGUE!

Her whopping tongue is measured from snout to tip and is the portion of her tongue that hangs out of her mouth (it is paralyzed from much abuse she experienced before her current parents adopted her) – and the tongue officially measures in at 7.3 inches!

The total measurement of her tongue from base to tip is 13.9 inches and when she sticks it out to reach for her favourite food of Peanut Butter, it stretches to over 16 inches!!

Mochi, far from being super cute and the most adorable big St Bernard dog, is also extra special due to her remarkable rescue story and her parents want to bring attention the value of pet adoption as a result.

Her owner Ryan Rickert told Newsivity:

“Mochi is the sweetest fluff ball and has a really cool back story of rescue and adoption. Oh yeah, and of course not forgetting her ridiculous tongue!”

Carla Rickert, also the proud owner of Mochi, gave her a forever home after adopting her from Big Dogs Huge Paws rescue organization in Colorado, USA. Before her rescue, Mochi lived her first 2 years being abused, neglected, and starved. When adopted, she had to overcome serious trust issues and extreme anxiety. Until she was 4 years old, she would cower when any male or person with a hat, came near her…and frequently soiled herself.

With the love from her new family and friends, she regained trust in humans and is now full of love!

It humanizes Mochi & friends and is focused on the messaging that Everyone has value, Everyone is worthy of love, being different is ok, and has an anti-bullying message undertone. It also puts a ton of focus on adventure, exploration of the outdoors, value of family, and animal science.

A special congratulations from us to Mochi and her lovely new family!
