The Banteng or Bos javanicus birmanicus is also called the Tembadau, is a wild cattle found in the Southeast Asia and some other countries they already extinct; commonly used for farming and meat, it was domesticated and is also known as the Bali Cattle.

When found in the wild, the the Banteng is shy but can be very dangerous to approach, so never think about it. We observed this animal from a very safe distance that also allowed us to take fantastic shots.

This animal is so beautiful to observe when they feed on grass in the afternoon but one cannot help but imagine the inevitable doom they face as habitat loss is always a threat and the constant decline due to hunting and poaching; Thailand wildlife sanctuaries give this beautiful animal to thrive and reproduce again.
