Madagascar

Two horns of the special beef bovine caled "Zebu" from Madagascar

These horns are beautifully polished and skill-fully polished with the black/white colour nicely visible.

Maximum length: Outside horn: 49 cm
Maximum length Inside horn:. 41 cm

Weight: 655 grams and 633 grams. .... Total: 1,288 gr

Note: Photo: 1, 4, 6, 9, 12, 14, 30, 31, 32, and 33 have been photographed indoors with soft artificial light

The other photos were made indoors and with camera flash.


Zebus were imported hundreds of years ago in Africa and crossbred with the native cattle (the Taurines).
Genetic analysis of the African cattle showed that high concentrations of Zebu genes were present in all bovine animals along the East coast of Africa.

Specifically the bovine animals of Madagascar are 100% pure so not crossbred with other cattle.

This can mean that the animals have arrived on the island by ship directly or that the animals crossed much earlier via the coastal route (Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia) and then to Madagascar.

Partial immunity to the rinderpest has also ensured that more and more Zebus can be found in Africa.
