betizu


It's name is derived from the Basque, behi izua, which translates to "elusive cow". The Beitzu also occupies a very important place in the mythology and is found among the stories of mystical animals that guard the caves in which the treasures of Mari are hidden.

The Betizu is short, slim and covered in unruly hair ranging from beige to reddish-brown. Its color slightly changes depending on the season. It has very expressive eyes, surrounded by aureole, highly developed mane and curved horns. The upper line of the neck is straight in females and swayed in males.There are also variations in color near the end of the feeet, the nose and the ocular aureole.. The hindquarters show a bony prominence with an upper tailhead continued by a long tail.

Although the Betizu is a kind of draught cattle and possesses very fine aerodynamic qualities, due to the limited population at the moment, it is not recommended to undertake any wingsuit catching activities.
