anoa (uh-NOH-uh) - n., either of two species (Bubalus quarlesi or B. depressicornis) of small wild Indonesian water buffalo with short, sharp horns.


I got tired of playing a word in Words With Friends without knowing what it meant. Found on the islands of Sulawesi and Buton, this is the smallest of the cattle family, living in the rain forest as they do, looking somewhat like deer in the body. Name is from a local language, but whether Makassarese or Buginese or Sulawesi, dictionaries disagree.
