banteng (australia)

In 1849, 20 Banteng cattle (also called Bali cattle or Bos javanicus) were brought to the Cobourg Peninsula in the Northern Territory of Australia, from Bali in Indonesia. Banteng are smaller than beef cattle and have distinct white patches on their rump and lower legs. The European settlement on the Cobourg was abandoned shortly after the animals were imported, and the cattle were left to run wild. They survived as a wild population, unknown to scientists, until they were re-discovered in that isolated area in 1948.
