    Tail Length: 40 cm / 16 in.
    Weight: Up to 300 kg / 660 lb
    Family group: Solitary
    Diet: Vegetation

    Physical Characteristics
    The thick black hide is covered with short, dark brown hair, with males tending to be darker than females. The undersides may be light brown. There are white markings on the head and lower legs, and a white crescent-shaped throat bib. The young are born a bright rufous-orange colour. The plump body is supported by stout limbs. The short, triangular-based horns are found in both sexes and are flattened along the top. They begin at the edge of the forehead and point diagonally backwards, growing 18-37 cm / 7-14.5 inches in length.

    Reproduction
    Gestation Period: 9-10 months.
    Young per Birth: 1
    Weaning: Supposedly 6-9 months.
    Sexual Maturity: 2-3 years.
    Life span: Up to 30 years.

    Behavior
    Their bodies are very efficient at crashing through the forest undergrowth, with the short horns being held close to the back in order to avoid being tangled. However, if cornered or approached within a critical distance, anoas will turn and attack violently. The anoa is considered very excitable and dangerous to its opponents, as its sharp horns can be used as daggers.

    Distribution
    Damp, dense undergrowth on the island of Sulawesi.
