A cross-breeding between the zebu and a long-horned animal

A domestic animal

The Ankole-Watusi is a domestic animal, the result of cross-breeding between the zebu and a long-horned cattle breed of ancient Egypt. It is used to accompany nomads looking for fresh pastures in East Africa. It produces good-quality milk but its meat is not consumed. During ritual ceremonies, cattle herders drink its blood, which they take directly from its jugular veins.

The Ankole-Watusi originates from East Africa.
