If you have particularly deep pockets, consider picking up a bovine investment - or at least a third of one.
The huge white cow - a purebred Nelore named Viatina-19 FIV - raised eyebrows recently when one-third of its ownership was sold for a staggering 6.99 million reals ( $1.4 million ) in Arandu, Brazil.

This means that the animal's total value is around $4.3 million.

Incredibly, its value has actually increased significantly over the last few years - back in 2021 someone had purchased one-half ownership of the same animal for $800,000.
These eye-watering sums demonstrate the value of Nelore cows which are characterized by having bright white fur and a rather unusual bulbous hump just above their front shoulders.

Native to India, the breed has become common in Brazil where its hardiness and ability to thrive on low-quality foliage makes it particularly well suited to the region.

i had a friend that was selling a dog for US$35,000,000. Guess what? My friend sold it easily. He got paid with 2 cats of US$15,000,000 each. At the end, everybody won and became millionaires. This is the magic of capitalism...

Yeah, I bought one, but the instruction manual was really hard to figure out and I couldn't get it to work. I was only able to get it to hop 30 seconds into the past.  The longest minute of my life I tell you.  Now its gathering dust in my cabin along with my Middle East Souvenirs and the fix for Global Warming.  Last time I looked, a puckwudgee had got its head caught in the phase capacitor and died and been sitting there for about a fortnight. The smell ! That's the last time I choose to be an early adopter.
