I think a Wapatui steer would be a better name for it. Giggle.
I know it's redundant, but...Wow.
Thanks Rebecca:))I guess not Toony!! Thanks :))Thanks Dave :))Oh - you great dis-believer Pat:))) Maybe you need a real-life encounter with one :))) You could ride past real fast on yer bike!!!
So yes, they are real. And those horns are honeycombed and full of blood vessels which help the animal regulate its body heat. But they still LOOK fictional.
Heres good info on them if you want: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ankole-Watusi
Just watch the swinging pocket watch. Your eyes are getting heavy . . . now your head is becoming heavy . . . sleep . . . sleep. I guess the hypnotist didn't have to mention the part about his head becoming heavy! ;o)
Hope he doesn't try to walk through a narrow doorway!

You'd hope so Sally - none of the photos showed them with lowered heads or the horns sawn off! Thanks.
Wow... Those horns must be hollow... If not how ever do they hold their heads up... Thanks, Rob for the look see.... :) :)
Google it then Pat!!! There's plenty of biggies in Africa & they've also bred them in other countries!! True!
I'm thinking the "African Watusi steer" is a figment of some photoshop-crazed jokester's imagination, like the old Jack-a-lope (a jackrabbit with antlers). Hmmmmmm?
Thanks Patti, anitas, pg, tex, Dave & Shirley!! Seeing IS believing :)))
That's truly amazing, I would never have believed it, if I haden't seen it here, Thanks Rob.
Wow, I wonder if I'm really seeing this. No more st... for me.
This dude looks like he got trapped in a sci-fi movie and didn't get off set soon enough! What a funny looking thing. I've never seen one. Of course, I'm not around too many pastures these days unless I'm hunting Bluebonnets! This guy is a freak! Thanks, RR (I think)!
Ha Ha Anitas........he can lay underneath his own shade!
I'm not even going there this time Rob.
My thoughts, exactly, robryan. Reading about them, it says the horns act as a radiator to cool them in the hot conditions.
Thanks scorpio, lyndee, Kathy, Cobbscout(LOL!!), & Neverbored!! I'm just amazed that he can lift his head !!!
Cobbscout - you are a hoot!

I fail to see the purpose for these horns. They've got to get in the way.
I live in Texas. Whenever I see these Watusi, I always feel like the horns weigh more than the steer itself. :)
