India's neighbour Bangladesh is trending on social media as hundreds of people are flocking to a farm to see the world's shortest cow.

As per a report by The Tribune, the miniature cow, named Rani, is 20 inches (51-cm) tall and 26 inches (66 cm) long, weighing 26 kg (57 lb). Apparently, the cow is so small that one can carry it around.

The report states that the managers of the farm, where Rani lives, have applied to Guinness World Records to nominate Rani as the shortest cow in the world.

"We are very confident that this will be very smallest one," said Mohammad Salim, executive at Shikor Agro Industries.

As per the Guinness World Records website, the title of the shortest cow in the world is currently held by 'Manikyam', a cow from Kerala who was 24.07 inches (61 cm) tall when it made it to the record books in 2014.

"Many people are coming from different places to see the mysterious cow, the smallest cow in the world so I also have to be here to see the cow," said one visitor, Ranu Begum.

The pictures of Rani have gone viral on Twitter with people across the globe commenting on how 'cute' it is. While most are in love with the dwarf cow, others are appalled at how people are breaking Coronavirus norms to see it.

Here's how people are reacting. Have a look.
