World’s shortest cow raises global attention! Rani is 61cm long, 51cm tall

Hundreds of Bangladeshis are flocking a farm in Chagigram village, to see the world’s suspected tiniest cow.

Rani, a 23-month-old cow has caught global attention after a video went viral. The dwarf cow is only 51 centimetres tall, 66 centimetres long and weighs 26 kilograms.

Rani mooes to the Guinness World Records

The managers of Shikor Agro Farm say they have applied to the Guinness World Records to have the cow certified as the world’s shortest.

“We are very confident that this will be the very smallest one,” Mohammad Salim, an executive at the farm said.

According to the Guinness World Records website, the title of the shortest cow in the world is currently held by ‘Manikyam’, a cow in an Indian state called Kerala. Manikyam was 61 centimetres tall when it made it to the record books in 2014.

Hasan Howlader, manager of Shikor Agro farm admitted that it has become hectic hosting hundreds of visitors each day. “More than 15,000 people have come to see Rani in the past three days. Honestly speaking, we are tired.”

The Guinness World Records has reportedly promised to offer its response within three months.
