Ankole-Watusi

For about 6000 years, African tribes have been breeding cattle. One of these domestic cattle is watussien. Watussi cattle has the longest horn in the world, where from tip to horn tip it can messure close to 2 meters. The horn can help the bull to cool down. When the bull gets too hot, it sends blood into the horns to allow it to cool.

The impressive Watussi has traditionally been a sacred animal and used as a status symbol and commodity between Africans. The Africans did not eat the meat, but the cattle were milked
