The Landes race is one of the four forms of bullfighting practiced in the world. It is distinguished from the other three (corrida, Portuguese corrida and Camargue race) by two peculiarities: the first is that it is practiced almost exclusively with females (Landes cows) and not bulls. The other peculiarity, which she shares with the Camargue race, is that there is no killing of the animal, neither during the race nor after.
