Pakistan goat: A star is born to a long-eared child from Pakistan

Dumbo is a cartoon elephant who was so large that his peers ridiculed him and forced him to do cruel circus stunts.

Long lugs are not the only thing that has made him famous.

Meet Simba, a kid goat from Karachi (Pakistan) whose ears measure 54cm (21in).

The times have changed. Instead of being ridiculed, he is now a worldwide star. He has won beauty contests and lives a luxurious lifestyle.

Mohammad Hasan Narejo (Simba's breeder) told AFP that he approached Guinness World Records to register Simba as the "Greatest of All Time" goat.

There is no category for "longest-eared goat" at the moment, so it is not clear if Simba's ears have broken any records.

The kid goat is the longest living creature in the world, but he has become a celebrity on social media in Pakistan.

Simba's stardom is not the only reason it has been able to propel himself to fame, but being born with such long features poses unique challenges.

They pose a danger to your safety and can be dangerous. To avoid an accident, Mr Narejo has used his ears to wrap around Simba's back. He also created a wearable harness that does the same thing.

Rival breeders are another concern. Mr Narejo is concerned about their unwelcome attention. To avoid any potential ill will from others, he has turned to traditional rites and prayer.

He told AFP that they recited Koranic verses, and blew on him to remove the evil eye.

His plans are however more ambitious. To promote Pakistan's status as a leader in goat breeding, he wants to raise Simba.

"Simba's Pakistani name must be known around the world."
