They may resemble domesticated carabao (water buffalo) but tamaraw are a different species and the most endangered buffalo species. Classed as critically endangered, they are found only on the island of Mindoro in the Philippines.
Tamaraw have distinctive V-shaped horns and a shaggy coat of chocolate to ebony fur. Adults stand four feet tall and weigh an average of 300 kilograms.
