It’s a panda! It’s a cow! It’s a panda cow!

with 4 comments

A rare miniature cow with markings similar to a panda bear was born on a farm in northern Colorado.

The so-called “panda cow” born in Larimer County is thought to be one of only about 24 in the world.

The (Loveland) Reporter-Herald reports the male calf named Ben was born Friday morning. His mother is a Lowline Angus cow…

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. Farmer Chris Jessen says panda calves can sell for $30,000.

Well, it’s almost a panda – sort of.

  2. No fair! No fair! I declare only half a point for that panda pic!

    You missed your chance, of course to caption the pic, identifying “mom and dad” in the background.

  3. For whatever crazy reason, cows are part of our everyday lives. To see the daily cow theory proven true, check out my new blog at http://mydailycow.wordpress.com/, where I’m keeping track of my daily cow sightings for all of 2011. So far, not one day without a cow!
