When you think of Scotland, the first animal that probably comes to mind is Nessie, the legendary and shy monster from Loch Ness. However, the Scottish Highlands are home to another creature which is much easier to spot: the Highland coo. In Scotland, cows are called "coos".
The Highland coo is an ancient Scottish breed with long horns, long hair and a fringe that makes it look different to other cows. Legend has it that a long time ago, a farmer wanted to impress his wife with a new variety of cow that would actually last through the long winters.
The coo is also unique because it can survive on poor grazing grounds, eating plants that other animals don't. The farmer crossed a standard Hereford cow with a longer-haired smaller cow and got one of Scotland's most popular tourist attractions!
This cute animal is also known as "shaggy coo" or "hairy coo". It has become a national symbol of Scotland and is important for farming as well as tourism. If you take a bus tour to the Scottish Highlands, don't miss the chance to take a photograph of this animal!
