answer to Mr T
Retirement is the last thing on the mind of Panama’s 64-year-old answer to Mr T as he sets his sights on chomping his way to a Guinness world record.
Boasting jaws of steel, Andres Gardin has been dubbed the human Coconut Peeler after spending almost half a century using his teeth to peel off the fruit’s hardened shell.
Having shred an estimated 100,000 coconuts in his lifetime, the B. A. Baracus fan has now set his sights on an official world record.
Using only his hand and feet, Gardin claims he can shuck around 500 coconuts in six hours.
‘I want to get in the Guinness book, because I know that I have what it takes.’
