Not what I expected when I went through the gate. Turns out this is a common farm animal if you grow rice. I guess it’s better than a tractor. Personally I’d feel better with a John Deere though.

The original Water Buffalo in the (NYC) Central Park Zoo were from a southern plantation farm yard. The union army took them during the civil war and sent them up north.

These 2 were spending the day in a large, and slimy green, pool of water to cool off.

Again, not what I expected.
