The Ankole-Watusi cattle is an ancient hybrid of long-horned, humpless domestic cattle from Egypt and longhorn Zebu from Pakistan and India. The mixture of these two breeds produced the Sanga breed which could be found in 2,000 B.C.E. in modern day Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, and other parts of eastern Africa, and became the base stock of many of the indigenous African breeds. In Uganda, the Nkole tribe's Sanga variety is known as the Ankole. In Rwanda and Burundi, the Tutsi tribe's Sanga variety is called the Watusi. Traditionally, Ankole-Watusi were considered sacred.
