Dwarf Zebu

INTRODUCTION

The dwarf zebu is a breed of domestic cattle that is descended from the zebu, one of the world’s oldest cattle breeds. Unlike horses which are measured from the shoulder, dwarf zebus are measured by the hip and cannot exceed 42 inches at this point. They have a large flap of skin under their neck, called a dewlap, and a hump on their withers. If food and water is scarce, they can live off the fat stored in their hump.
