Posthumously, a 2-foot-tall cow has been named the world’s shortest.
Guinness World Records has named a Bangladesh cow, who stood at only 20 inches tall when she died, as the world’s tiniest cow.
Rani, a Bhutanese cow owned by Dhaka farmer Kazi Sufian, was barely 20 inches tall and weighed 57 pounds when she died at the age of two, according to Guinness.
Sufian claimed he understood from a young age that Rani would be too little to sell for meat, and he soon began to assume the cow was the world’s smallest.
He informed Guinness that the other Bhuttis on the farm were twice Rani’s size.
Sufian began sharing videos and images of Rani, and she became an online sensation.
In July, Sufian claimed, “More than 20,000 people turned out at the farm this week to catch a look of Rani and take selfies with her.”
Rani died in August after suffering from an enlarged stomach as a result of overeating and gas buildup.
