Zebu, Bos indicus, is a domesticated humped species of cattle used as a draft animal in Africa, India and Asia. Zebu are the sacred cattle of India, and when crossbred with other domesticated cattle have produced the Brahman cattle.  Zebu are believed to be descended from the banteng, a wild ox from Borneo and Java.
