A cow named Rani, at roughly 20 inches tall is likely the world’s shortest cow.

The diminutive bovine only weighs 57 pounds and is so light that farmers can easily carry her around, similar to a puppy.

According to Washington Post’s MariaLuisa Paul, after news agencies starting running Rani’s story, hundreds of thousands of people have defied coronavirus restrictions to visit the farm in Charigram, Bangladesh that she calls home.

Kazi Mohammed Abu Sufian, a farmer who lives in the nearby area, proudly boasted that there’s a very high possibility that Rani could get her name entered in the Guinness Book of World Record.

23-month-old Rani is a white Bhutanese cow and is expected not to grow any taller.

Once her height is confirmed, Rani, which means ‘Queen’ in Bengali, will claim the world’s shortest bovine title, held since 2014 by a 24-inch-tall Indian cow named Manikyam.

“She doesn’t eat a lot,” Hasan Howladar, the farm manager, told Reuters.

Howladar is confident that his cow is the smallest on Earth that he has officially applied to have Rani certified by the Guinness Book of World Records.
