bovine »

The biological subfamily Bovinae includes a diverse group of 10 genera of medium to large sized ungulates, including:

  • Domestic cattle
  • Bison
  • African buffalo
  • Water buffalo
  • Yak
  • Antelopes (Only spiral-horned antelopes)

See Hooves for detailed listing.

The evolutionary relationship between the members of the group is obscure, and their classification into loose tribes rather than formal sub-groups reflects this uncertainty. General characteristics include cloven hoofs and usually at least one of the sexes of a species having true horns.
