Indigenous African cattle can be broadly classified into four categories: humpless Bos taurus, humped Bos indicus, sanga (African humpless Bos taurus x humped Bos indicus hybrid), and zenga, defined as sanga x zebu backcross.
These are depicted on paintings of humpless cattle at Zeban Ona Libanos and Solium Ba'atti in Eritrea that lack dates.
Generally, the crosses (Sanga) are normally heavier at maturity than their humpless parental stock, but lighter than their humped parental stock [11], which was explicitly depicted in their carcass characteristics in this study.
