Tiny 20-inch cow is born on farm in Bangladesh

Posted on Sunday, 18 July, 2021 | Comment icon 8 comments
The pint-sized bovine is so miniscule in stature that it is a possible contender for the world's smallest cow.
Measuring a mere 20 inches in height and weighing in at 57 pounds, the tiny cow - which is named Rani - has become something of a tourist attraction in its native Bangladesh.

Currently found at a farm in Charigram, the miniature beast has been visited by hundreds of people in recent weeks, with many flouting lockdown restrictions for the opportunity to catch a glimpse of it.

"Rani is a craze as she has a high possibility to have her name in the Guinness Book of World Records," said local farmer Kazi Mohammed Abu Sufian.

At 23 months old, Rani - which is a white Bhutti (or Bhutanese) cow with dwarfism - is not expected to get any taller, meaning that she should technically be eligible for the world record.
The current record of 24 inches was set by a tiny cow from India named Manikyam.

"She doesn't eat much," farm manager Hasan Howladar told BBC News.

"She eats a small amount of bran and straw twice a day."

"She likes to roam outside and seems to be happy when we take her in our arms."

I looked them up, they suffer from dwarfism but I couldn't see references to any other condition. Think how cool it would be to say to guests "do you take milk?" and then calling a miniature cow in from the garden!
