A six-foot-four-inch cow from California might make it into the Guinness Book of World Records if found to be the world’s tallest cow.

If confirmed, Danniel would be two inches taller than the previous record holder, Blossom, who died last year, stood at 6 feet 2 inches.

Danniel was bottle-raised by a family who adopted him as a pet, according to the Sequoia Park Zoo.

He visited the zoo where he was measured.

“Danniel was lured from his paddock with alfalfa and bread into the barnyard to stand on a flat concrete area - a requirement - where he was measured. After a short detour to smell the barnyard flowers, Danniel - who is too large to be led against his will - was well-behaved,” the Zoo wrote on their Facebook page. 

Amanda Auston, who works at the zoo, mentioned that her biggest challenge caring for Danniel is his 80 to 150 pounds of daily droppings, according to USA Today
