Panda Cow Photo: New Panda Cow Born New Years Eve
Ben, the New Miniature Panda Cow, Was Born to Chris and Pam Jessen On Their Northern Colorado Farm
It took 44 years to create Ben, the panda cow, and the work was done by a man named Richard Gradwohl from Covington Washington, who bred eight different miniature breeds to create the new breed of the panda cow.
Miniatures range from about 44 inches tall on their tail side, on their hocks, but he can get up to 1000 pounds though -- so a pretty good-sized animal," Chris Jessen told "Good Morning America.
This panda cow is one of only 25 in the world, and Ben will eventually be sold. They are often kept as pets or show animals.
