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.
