Chris Jessen holds his new “panda cow” named Ben, hours after the rare miniature cow was born in Campion, Colo. 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. Jessen says panda calves can sell for $30,000, Washington Post reported.
