Managed to just get Sudan with 2 seconds to spare. Good quiz, quite surprised that Russia was not on the list.

I imagine in this quiz it means 'Bos taurus' what most of us think of as cattle.

Ireland's equivalent of the Iliad is the Táin Bó Cúailnge, literally translated to 'the driving off of cows of Coolee'. It details a war fought not over Helen of Troy, but a prize bull. Cows are clearly widely considered as a prime reason to have a war.

I knew there just HAD to be an African country in there, but I didn't guess them at all. I was stuck on the countries around South Africa, didn't even think of the two in the answers. Also, I'm a bit surprised Canada isn't on the list. There's a LOT of beef farming here. I'm not even out West where the really big ranches are, and probably three quarters of the farmers in my and my parent's area have herds of cattle.
