Looking for a new pet for your kid? Forget the usual suspects — dogs, cats, goldfish, etc. — get yo’ self a panda cow!
Only one of 24 in the world, a rare miniature cow was born in Colorado on Friday morning, which is the work of over 44 years of genetic manipulation by Richard Gradwohl, a farmer in Covington, Washington. A white belt (trendy if you ask me) wraps around the animals midsection and its face is very panda-like — a white face with black ovals around the eyes.
Farmer Chris Jessen, who raises miniature cattle and miniature kangaroo, stated that the panda cow calves are intended as pets and sell for up to $30,000. Now that, if you ask me, is one expensive pet!
What’s next in genetic manipulation? I, personally, would like a monkey that has superpowers, cooks a mean mac n’ cheese, and can moonwalk upside down. But hey, that’s just me.
