    Sure looks shopped to me. It would be one thing if cows had some kind of horns..

    It's not photoshopped. I know the outfitter where the cow was shot. They first got a trail cam pic a year ago and managed to hunt it this year. Measured 58/54.

    Yup it's the real deal.
    The cow had a set of testes hidden inside.
    Shot outside Uitenhage in the Eastern Cape by the Rudmans

    I was wondering if it was a hermaphrodite.

    Interesting...wonder why the horns grew like that? Do they know the age?

    Not that there is anything wrong with that! ;)

    I'm no expert, but from seeing other hermaphrodites it seems any with horns always have odd shapes, relative to the species.

    This Kudu was shot by my dad at Blaaukrantz Safaris with the Rudman family. There is a video on it as well. Promise it is not photoshoped. Wil load more photo's

    I've seen that video. Amazing how that horn was growing into the neck! On Youtube the channel the video I watched is on is called Whitebone Creations Hunting. He's got lots of excellent stuff on there.
