Sapi Terkecil Di Dunia

Menurut Guinness World Records, bertubuh kecil bukanlah kelemahan tapi sebuah keberuntungan. Hal inilah yang dialami oleh sapi terkecil di dunia dengan tinggi hanya 33,5 inci (0,8 meter). Sapi mungil  sangat cocok untuk  dijadikan dan bukan sapi pedaging. Sapi ini berhasil diselamatkan dalam  perjalanan menuju  ke rumah jagal.

BBC melaporkan seekor  sapi betina tersebut bernama Swallow. Swallow  adalah sapi Dexter yang  lahir di Newbury, Berkshire pada tahun 1999 dan dibeli oleh Martyn dan Caroline Ryder pada lelang Bibit Hewan Langka tahun  2006. Saat ini Swallow  berusia 11 tahun dan dalam kondisi sedang  hamil.

Pada tanggal 16 September 2010, nama Swallow secara resmi   dimasukkan   dalam buku Guinness World Records edisi terbaru, bersama dengan anjing dengan lidah terpanjang dengan ukuran  4,5 inci (11,4 cm).
