Ma-Nuga are a species of large bovine-like animals endemic to the Special Region, which appear to be similar to cattle on Earth. Ma-Nuga bear a resemblance to that of a North American bison. Their bodies are covered with thick brown hair, with lighter brown hair covering their noses, which protrude outward from their large heads. Similar to cattle, Ma-Nuga are grass-feeding herbivores which presumably live in herds. Ma-Nuga are among the most commonly seen livestock species present in the Special Region. Their roles are comparable to those of a cattle as well. They are widely raised for meat and possibly milk and hides/leather.
The common cooking method for Ma-Nuga meat is to wrap the a long bone from livestock with smoked Ma-Nuga meat. To people from Earth, it looked like a type of sausage or turkey leg.
