A rare miniature cow with markings similar to a panda was born on a farm in northern Colorado, US.
The so-called ‘panda cow’ is thought to be one of only about 24 in the world.
His mother is a Lowline Angus cow while his father, Donovan, is a panda bull on the farm.
Farmer Chris Jessen raises miniature cattle and also owns a miniature kangaroo on his hobby farm.
The miniature panda cow is the result of genetic manipulation. A white belt encircles the animal’s midsection, and the cow has a white face with black ovals around the eyes, giving it a panda-like appearance. The mini-cattle are bred solely as pets.
