A rare miniature cow with black and white marks similar to a panda bear was born on New Year's Eve on a farm in Colorado.

Ben is a so-called panda cow, one of only about 25 in the world.

Panda cows are a rare miniature breed of cattle that's specially bred to look like a panda.

Ben's owners already have two panda cows.

"The plan is to sell him, and yes we hope there's a big demand," said Ben's owner, Chris Jessen. "There's not a huge demand for pet cows, but I think it's growing in popularity."

If you're interested in bringing Ben home, all you need is $30,000.

He may be a miniature, but he's no lap cow.

Ben is expected to grow about 4-feet tall and weigh close to 1,000 pound
