Sulawesi Surprise! : Holy Cow!

After breakfast, a full day would be spent exploring Toraja Land. There were promises of spectacular views of blue mountains, green rice terraces and valleys but holy cow! On the roadside, there was a strange animal. It looked like a seladang, a sort of buffalo and a man was giving it a good scrub. Our bus chugged to a stop and we got down excitedly. We had a field day taking photographs of the animal...

Is this a buffalo or a tapir?

Traveling Tip: Take delights in the local animals!

handsome animal. Noticed the legs are a bit short but they are really stout and strong. Yes. the colours somehow are like tapirs' Tks for sharing

Didn't pay attention to the legs. Thanks for pointing that out.
