The banteng, also known as tembadau, is a species of wild cattle found in Southeast Asia and Australia. The banteng is similar in size to domesticated cattle. Banteng live in sparse forest where they feed on grasses, bamboo, fruit, leaves, and young branches. The banteng is generally active both night and day, but in places where humans are common, they adopt a nocturnal schedule. Banteng tend to gather in herds of two to 30 animals. Each herd contains only one adult bull. The domesticated form of the banteng was first introduced to Australia in 1849. Since then, the initial population had grown from only 20 in 1849 to 8,000-10,000 and is used exclusively for sport hunting and by Aboriginal subsistence hunters.
