Tamaraw

species of buffalo

The tamaraw or Mindoro dwarf buffalo, is a small, hoofed mammal.[1] It is found only on the island of Mindoro in the Philippines. The tamaraw was originally more widely spread. Because of human habitation, hunting, and logging, it is present in only a few remote grassy plains and is now an endangered species.[2]
