Some social media stars gain fame through their looks, others through their jokes. Simba the baby goat has conquered the web with his amazingly long ears – 56cm and growing.
Since his birth on June 4 in Karachi, Pakistan, the tan child has attracted thousands of followers on YouTube and other channels.
His breeder, Mohammad Hassan Narejo, sent Simba’s details to the Guinness Book of Recordsalthough he’s not sure if it tracks such measurements.
He’s still waiting for an answer.
When Simba was born, his ears were 48 cm long. They’ve grown another 8cm in just over a month and show no signs of stopping.
“I have a special velvet harness or pouch to hold his ears so he can walk and play with ease without tangling his ears,” Mr Narejo said.
Mr. Narejo works in the Air Traffic Control Department at Karachi Airport, but his passion is goat farming and he has big plans for Simba.
“I intend to save Simba’s seed for artificial insemination so his breeding can continue when, God forbid, he’s gone,” he said.
Mr. Narejo feeds Simba milk three times a day.
