COWS

They’re called Heck cattle, also known—and we are not making this up—as “Nazi Super Cows.” In the 1920s and ‘30s, German zoologists (and brothers) Heinz and Lutz Heck each sought to recreate the extinct wild ox called the aurochs which featured heavily in Teutonic mythology.

Heinz Heck chose Spanish fighting cattle as a breeding strain for their prehistoric shape and aggression, and the Nazis used their fierce image in propaganda. Then, World War II happened. The Nazis fell, but the cows survived.
