Craftsmen in the town of Berriozabal in Mexico have made, what they say, is the biggest hammock in the world.

At 37 metres long (121 feet), the colourful hammock weighs in at 168 kilograms (370 pounds), a local newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The paper reported that the Berriozabal hammock had smashed a previous world record set by a 12-metre-long (39 feet) hammock in the Mexican state of Yucatan.

The new record-holding Hammock will be on show in Berriozabal and other municipalities in Chiapas.

The hammock's creators said they're confident this Hammock will make it into the Guinness Book of Records.
