Zebu Humped Back Cow
Genus and Species: Bos taurus indicus
Zebu are characterised by a fatty hump on their shoulders, a large dewlap, and sometimes drooping ears. They are well adapted to withstanding high temperatures, and are farmed throughout the Tropical countries.
Their habitats are primarily tropical forests, jungles, wetlands, and swamps. They also live in open grasslands, meadows, and plains.
Humans bred this unique cow in southern Asia. Their small stature makes it easier to move through dense jungles in that region. They are also much more adapted to hot and humid temperatures.
