Low land Anoa is an endangered and endemic species to Sulawesi. The solitary, monogamous, wild and aggresive characteristic make them difficult to mate. The purpose of this study was to determine the sexual behaviour of young anoa pairs and mature anoa pairs at ABC. The study was conducted on 4 until 16 August 2017. Behavioural observation was done using animal focal sampling technique by recording the sexual behaviour that occur during the mating process of each pair. The results showed there are differences in sexual behaviour between the pairs of anoa. In the young anoa pairs, there were no attempted of mounting behaviour, penile erection, penile intromission.
