New Caledonia 20-FRANCS (KM12) Zebu

Zebu are a cattle breed well adapted to tropical climates with about 75 different species around the world. They are characterized by their lyre shaped horns, droopy ears, and a large fatty hump on their shoulders.

The cows on this coin show the horns, but they have the wrong ears and seem to be missing the hump, so whether they are actually a zebu breed is questionable.
