    A long-tailed cat, an octogenarian bodybuilder and a five-inch long eyelash are included in the latest edition of Guinness World Records.

    The 2018 version of the chronicle of extraordinary feats and features was released Thursday.

    The honorees include a cat from Ferndale, Michigan, named Cygnus that boasts a tail that stretches more than 17 inches (46 centimeters). It set the world record for longest tail on a domestic cat.

    A Chinese woman has set the record for world's longest eyelash, at nearly five inches (12 centimeters).

    An 83-year-old great-grandfather from Los Angeles has been named the world's oldest bodybuilder.

    This is the 63rd edition of the Guinness book.
