Do You Watusi

*****
This breed of cattle is native to Africa. Its horns can span up to 8 feet from tip to tip and are used for cooling. They can weigh up to 1600 pounds, the Watusi, not just the horns.  You can see an elk in the background. They would walk right down the middle of the road when they saw you coming. They see cars and they think food. FYI, these guys were really big.

If you want to watch Wednesday Addams do the watusi, check out the following clip. If you were a kid in the US in the 1960s you probably watched this show. I know I did.

They look big! There's a lot of power in that animal, just looking at it.

An impressive 'portrait' of a powerful animal!

What a super shot Barb, you really get a sense of how big and powerful this beast is.. love the way you've caught the elk in the background, it's antlers seem to be much more delicate in comparison!
p.s. really enjoyed the video, don't remember seeing it but do remember doing the watusi :))
