A TEXAS longhorn bull who more than lives up to his name has smashed the record for the world's longest horns.
JR's horns are 2.77m from tip to tip - and they are likely to grow.
Although his name is derived from a character in the TV show Dallas, JR is part of the largest herd of Texas longhorns in Australia, roaming around the 445ha Leahton Park estate in Queensland.
He has claimed the Guinness World Record from a bull in Ohio named Shadow Jubilee, whose horns measured 2.23m.
JR's owner, Michael Bethel, 50, who runs Leahton Park with wife Lynda, 39, began breeding longhorns 14 years ago.
He said: "I don't think JR realises how much attention he's getting now he's a record breaker.
"He's just happy and healthy. We don't give him any special treatment. We just let him graze around with the kangaroos, like the rest of the herd.
"He's only seven, so he still has a bit of growing to do yet - they can live until their early 20s. His horns could still get bigger."
The park opened as a tourist attraction three years ago.
