An 11-year-old from Sandy, Utah, placed 43 snails on his face Saturday in an attempt to set a Guinness World Record. Fin Keleher sat in a recliner and used snails gathered from neighbors’ gardens. Each snail had to remain on his face for 10 seconds, and it took Keleher three tries before he claimed the record.
The current record is thought to be 36 snails. Keleher’s family is sending witness statements and video to Guinness this week.
