683First hexapusHenry the hexapusFirst firstUnited Kingdom, Isle of Anglesey28 September 2015A hexapus is an octopus possessing only six tentacles instead of eight, but it is merely a freak, developmental oddity, not a separate species. The first documented specimen was Henry, a hexapus found off North Wales and donated by Anglesey Zoo to the Sea Life Centre in Blackpool, UK, in 2008. A male specimen of the lesser octopus Eledone cirrhosa, when examined Henry was found not to have lost two tentacles owing to injury as had initially been assumed, because there was no space where they would have originally been if this were the case. It seems instead that Henry's highly unusual condition was the result of a developmental malfunction.Two other hexapuses have been photographed but not examined by scientists. One, a specimen of the common octopus Octopus vulgaris, was caught in Greece by holidaying snorkel divers in July 2013, but was killed and eaten before it could be formally verified. Another one was reputedly photographed in the waters of Portinho Arrábida, Portugal, by American tourists in 2014, but again this has not been verified by experts.

689Record Holder Q+A: Sharran Alexander, Heaviest SportswomanAt the recent launch of Guinness World Records 2013, we had the opportunity to speak to several record holders featured in the new book. We asked them the questions world record fans most wanted to know about, and now here are the answers! Today's Q+A is with Sharran Alexander, the world's heaviest sportswoman, who weighs in at 448lb (203.2kg). 6ft tall Sharran is the only woman recognised by the British Sumo Federation, and has won 4 gold medals to date in international competitions. Q - Where are you from? A - Maida Vale, London. Q - Did you purposefully seek to become a Guinness World Record holder? Or did you enter on a whim out of curiosity? A - At the 2011 US Sumo Open I was the heaviest competitor, male or female. It was a little embarrassing, until Kelly Gneiting (heaviest person to complete a marathon, at a weight of 400lb, in 9 hr 48 min 52 sec) suggested I enter myself for a world record, and here I am today. Q - Is your size a detriment to your performance, or a help? Have you ever felt pressure to change your appearance? Do you have advice for other aspiring female athletes? A - My size is very much an advantage. I've never felt any pressure to gain or lose weight - my current weight loss is down to me, my age, and wanting to feel healthier. I'm aiming to get down to, and then maintain, a weight of 150-160kg. My advice to aspiring atheletes? Just follow your heart and do what you want to do. The recent Paralympics here in London should be proof to you all that anything is possible. Q - What would you do to prevent your record being broken? A - I wouldn't do anything, it wouldn't bother me at all. I love my record for as long as it will last. Q - Where do you keep your GWR certificate? A - On the wall in my living room - The first thing people see when they come round! Q - How do you feel about GWR, the organisation itself? A - Ive had a great experience... there's always been someone there to help me, and I've been ringing and emailing them a lot. I'd work there if they have a job going! Do you have anything for me?
