A potato the size of a small dog is found in New Zealand

A large potato sits on a toy truck at Donna and Colin Craig-Browns home on Monday near Hamilton, New Zealand. The New Zealand couple dug up a potato the size of a small dog in their backyard and have applied for recognition from Guinness World Records.

A couple discovered the giant spud while weeding. “We couldn’t believe it,” said Donna Craig-Brown. “It was just huge.” They’ve applied to Guinness to have it recognized as the world’s largest potato.
