We had talked of a good symmetric horn spread of about 36 inches. This was well above that. But the single most distinguishing feature was a very thick boss that covered the whole skull, double the height of that of the other bulls. It was apparent when its head was down, but after that quick glimpse, it brought its head up, with nostrils flaring and ears flapping like radar dishes. It seemed to be staring past us, a near-sighted ton-and-a-half tank.
