Greater Beeve

AKA "Longhorn""

Greater Beeve are a changeling breed derived from the pre-Kingdom Come animal called a cow (Bos taurus). Greater Beeve stand 1.4 to 1.6 meters at the shoulder and weigh 400 to 900 kilograms. Their hide is scaled and plated like a Gator and, male and female alike, they sport immense sharp horns that span 1.5 to 2.2 meters. Supporting an animal this size is difficult in the Dust Lands, and Greater Beeve range over vast distances to get enough forage. Unlike their progenitors, these animals are omnivorous - they browse on any standing plant they can find and will also eat carrion and other animal matter. Small groups of Greater Beeve sometimes follow the herds of their lesser cousins, but few cowboys care to try herding the larger more dangerous "longhorns".

Persistent rumor has it that a tribe of nomads far to the west actually ride these animals like hoss. If it's true, they must have some special hold over the beasts, or ride a similar but very different species, since Greater Beeve are vicious and like nothing more than goring and eating animals and people that annoy them.
