Holy cow, check out these horns

I’ve featured the Angola cow on this blog before but it was in 2011 and you may have missed it the first time. I took my kids to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park this morning and we enjoyed a beautiful sunny and warm day, breathing fresh air and spotting lots of animals.

While on the 30-minute tram tour, we saw a lot of African and Asian animals, including several babies (’tis the season). We first spotted an Angola cow down in the valley but it was too far for my cell phone camera and my good camera was buried in my backpack. Later we got to see Angola cows a lot closer and I managed to take a few pictures.

I wouldn’t get close to this bovine but the deer on the left doesn’t seem too worried. They must have some kind of deal going on…

Here’s another Angola cow so you can see the giant horns.

I understand the set of horns can be up to eight feet wide. I wouldn’t want to be the zookeeper taking care of scooping up this enclosure, would you?
