Photographer's Note

I searched on the internet what this hunchbacked bovine is; it is a zebu. of Indian origin it was introduced in tropical Africa since a long long time.
the fatty hump at the withers, especially in males, is a caloric reserve that allows them to withstand periods of scarcity: it inflates in the wet season and deflates during the dry season.
