"Exotics" depend on where you live. One country may consider a certain type of cattle to be exotic that Another Country "across the pond" does not. For example, in India, Angus cattle are considered an exotic breed, but not in North America. Here in North America, Nelore or Tuli cattle are considered exotic breeds, but not in India and Africa, respectively.
