There's a new kid on the block who could be a world record breaker.
Ten-day-old kid goat Simba, meaning lion in Swahili, was born with extra-long ears, measuring almost 19 inches.
The goat’s owner, Muhammad Hassan Narejo, is very excited about 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 are no goats with the same honour.
Goats generally tend to have long ears with the Nubian breed having the longest ones but Simba is not a Nubian goat.
Its long ears are perhaps the result of a mutation or genetic disorder.

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