  New pix of the longest ear hair ever
Updated 12 October 2002, 09.18
Antony Victor's ear hair is 11.5cm long
A man has broken one of the grossest world records ever - and we've got the pix to prove it!

Antony Victor from India officially has the world's longest ear hair - it measures 11.5cm.

His achievement has been confirmed by the Guinness Book of Records, and these are the first pictures of his incredibly hairy ears.

'The ear haired teacher'

B D Tyagi used to hold the ear hair record
The old record holder
Antony's son, Peter, wrote to CBBC Newsround Online all the way from India, to say how chuffed his family was with the record.

He also told us that his dad used to be a head teacher at a school, where all the pupils and staff called him 'the ear-haired teacher'.

A third challenger

Antony has smashed the record held by B D Tyagi from Bhopal, India, whose ear hair is just 10.2cm long.

But he may have to hang on tight to his hairy record.

A third man, Narayan Prasad Pal, also from India, is claiming his hair measures a whopping 13cm. But that's not been confirmed yet by the Guinness Book of Records.
