There’s a new kid on the block who could be a world record breaker.
Ten-day-old kid Simba, which means lion in Swahili, was born with extra-long ears, measuring nearly 19 inches.
The goat’s owner, Muhammad Hassan Narejo, is very fond of his animal and Simba is slowly becoming a celebrity in Pakistan.
Although dogs with the longest ears have made it into the Guinness Book of World Records, there is no goat with the same honor.
Goats generally have long ears, with the Nubian breed having the longest, but Simba is not a Nubian goat.
Its long ears may be the result of a mutation or a genetic disorder.

The goat’s ears serve an important purpose, helping to keep the body cool in hot weather.
That’s handy, because over in Karachi, where the baby goat lives, it’s currently 32°C.
“We hope that Simba will soon be the Guinness World Record holder,” said owner Muhammad.
