What's a Baby Banteng?
February 06, 2012
The St. Louis Zoo in Missouri has some good news! A 42-pound bull Banteng calf named Studebaker was born on January 9 to first-time mom Bentley and father Knox.
Native to Southeastern Asia's dense forests, glades and grasslands, this endangered species of shy, wild cattle is born with a beautiful red coat, which in males will gradually change to black by the time they reach adulthood. The females retain their red color for life. The calf can be seen with his mother and herd on warmer days at the Red Rocks area of the Zoo.
