It's hard to say yet if this outshines her husband, Nik Wallenda, walking on a tightrope across the Falls in 2012.

Dressed in a black body suit, she performed a few acrobatic maneuvers before briefly hanging by her teeth with the use of a mouth guard.

USA media said her stunt set a Guinness World Record for height, breaking a record established by her husband Nik when hanging from his teeth 76m above Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri.

In a further theft of Nik Wallenda's thunder, Erendira smashed her husband's record on the fifth anniversary of his famous tightrope walk across Niagara Falls. Legislators thanked the couple for bringing such unique talent and world-renowned acts to Niagara Falls. While the plan was to hang from her teeth only once for about 15 seconds, she said she felt so good that she opted to repeat the move for about 10 seconds.

"They make it sound like it's not a big deal because she's done it before", said Kevin O'Brien, from Wheatfield.

Thousands of tweets focused on the death defying stunt pulled off by Erendira Wallenda, Thursday morning.

"It is just as much of a challenge, in fact more of a challenge often, because you're anxious you're going to get tangled up in it", he said.

"I would probably want to spend all day long up there", Erendira said.

County and city officials who helped finance the stunt hope people watching news coverage will feel the same pull.

Crowds of people gathered on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls around Table Rock to watch Erendira's performance. "I really believe the rate of return on our investment will be tenfold for us". While the rest of us are content to see Niagara Falls from the safety of the sidelines, this family goes to great lengths to have the best seats in the house.

Erendira Wallenda is just happy to be back on the ground.

Husband and wife come from world-famous circus and daredevil families.
