Watusi Longhorn (Bos taurus africanus)

Origin: Sub-saharan Africa
Sighted at: Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch, San Antonio, TX

These cows are something else! Known as the “cattle of kings,” the Watusi (also known as Ankole) is a type of Sanga cattle from Africa. This impressive specimen was one of several steer at the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch. I was badly worried that they would nuzzle my dad’s rental vehicle.
