Special Characteristics: 
Main Location: 
They inhabit the Maryoute, Mattrouh, Nobaria and Alexandria regions of north-western Egypt.
Origin: 
These cattle are generally considered to be of Brachyceros (Shorthorn) type, although some writers believe that they have very little zebu influence. Their conformation is similar to those of the Cyprus, Damascus and Lebanese cattle, but they have some signs of hump development. In general this breed is believed to have derived mainly from the humpless Shorthorn cattle of African (Hanotte et al., 2002) or Asian origin (Epstein, 1971; Payne and Wilson, 1999).
