What kind of cow is this and why does it have a bump on its back? (Just want to know) by L.

L -
I think that is a Brahman cow, a breed created in the United States from crossing imported cows from India in the early 1900s. They are particularly good at living in tropical climates because they are heat tolerant with a light coat and bug resistant due to unusually thick skin. The hump on his back works like a camels hump, storing food and water in case of hard times.

Hope this answers some of your questions!
