I thought the India had the highest population. According to this source it is but it includes water buffalo so maybe both should be acceptable. Looking at a couple of websites both are listed with varied numbers.

My favorite is the French word for the sound of a duck, "coin." Obviously it's not pronounced anything like the English word of the same spelling, but it's still funny to imagine ducks walking around asking everyone for money.

Yak is one of the easier ones, I dont see why is decided to give the y.

The only one I missed was cud, what does he regurgitate, well, his food ;) that didnt work neither did grass. Even if a c was provided I wouldnt have gotten this one :) (I just looked up to see if the word in my own language rings more bells, but translate gives me a word which means miracle, I doubt that is it haha)

hm maybe it is related to the dutch kauwt/kauwde and german kaut(e) meaning chewed. It seems we dont really have a word for it, only thing that could be used was foodball... but more a description than a term.

How have 62% got cud?? One of the few I didn't get along with Zebu and Aurochs.

Is this an american word? Really as others have said, it regurgitates its food, which is usually grass.

This is a very obscure word in the UK.

As a non-native English speaker I know it from the biblical reference 'animals that chew the cud'.

I am from the UK and can’t remember not knowing the word cud, as in cows chewing the cud, which is what they appear to spend most of their time doing.

I disagree, chewing the cud is a standard phrase in England for that part of ruminant digestion

Your not having heard a word does not make it 'very obscure'. Own your ignorance, and don't foist it on others.

Argh! Of course I know that milk comes through the udders! But I got hung up on where in the cow the milk is made thus "produced"...
