Water Buffalo

97% of all Water Buffalo in the world live in Asia!
They've been domesticated for over 5,000 years.

They're used for work animals, dairy production, and meat.
I'd never been close to one but they were everywhere in Vietnam.

I saw them in rice fields, back yards, on sticks spinning around, almost anywhere just outside a city.

This guy was right outside a place we ate in the Mekong.

We set out to explore early one morning and saw this water buffalo spinning..

but when we came back.. there was nothing left!

I had always thought of them as just mozzarella makers..
