Thousands of visitors are herding themselves to a small farm in Bangladesh to see what may be the world’s shortest cow, according to news reports.
Rani, a fully grown 23-month-old Bhutanese cow, has been drawing crowds lately despite local COVID-19 restrictions. “I have never seen anything like this in my life,” visitor Rina Begum told BBC News.
The half-size heifer, which has recently become a social media sensation, is in the process of being verified by Guinness World Records as the world’s shortest cow, according to BBC News.
Rani stands a mere 20 inches (51 centimeters) tall, meaning that, once her measurements are verified, she will easily break the record set by Manikyam, a 24-inch-tall (61 cm) Vechur cow in India who is the current Guinness World Record holder. She’s also quite the lightweight, at just 57 pounds (26 kilograms).
