(Worldkings) An Indian science teacher might have the largest mouth on earth.

To break his latest record, he held 1,001 straws into his mouth for a minute.
A science teacher from Mumbai when not smashing his 48 world records to date, Dinesh has also also stuffed 79 grapes and 12 lit candles into his mouth (not all at once).
‘My dream is to break all possible mouth stuffing records as soon as possible,’ he said.
At 6ft 6in tall, towering Dinesh says the key to his success is practicing daily – and his abnormally large mouth. He said: ‘To enhance my mouth stuffing capacity, I practice yoga and breathing excercises regularly’.
Just imagine him yodelling.
It isn’t always easy, though. ‘After practice or a record attempt, I usually experience swellings in my mouth, especially in the lips and gum area’, he said. ‘During the attempt I feel sensation of committing and suffocation. I always overcome such minor things, though.’
