The pint-sized calf is so tiny that it’s in the running for the world’s smallest cow.

This little bovine measures in at just 20 inches in height and weighing in at 57 pounds. It’s name is Rani and it’s quickly becoming a something of a tourist attraction in Bangladesh.

Those that are eager to see the little gal are flocking to the farm in Charigram, and so far, the mini beast has been visited by hundreds of people in most recent weeks — many are even dodging their lockdown restrictions for the opportunity snap a photo.

“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.

Rani is nearly two years old now and seems just fine with her small size, and the white Bhutti (or Bhutanese) cow is not expected to get any taller. The current world record of 24 inches was set by a tiny cow from India named Manikyam, so Rani’s odds are in her favor when it comes to claiming the title.

“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.”
