Domestic Buffalo

Bubalus bubalis

These buffalo are the domestic form of the water buffalo. They are closely related to bison, buffalo and cattle.



Size: Shoulder Height 1.5 - 1.9m
Weight: 800 - 1,200kg



Domesticated water buffalo are widespread, found in Asia, South America, Europe, North Africa and Australia. True wild water buffalo still survive in parts of Asia, where they are found in swamps, marsh lands and forests.



In the wild these buffalo would eat grass, herbs and aquatic plants, usually feeding at night.



After a pregnancy of 9 - 11 months a single calf is born, reaching maturity in 2 years.



The domestic buffalo is not endangered as it is a domestic breed. Its wild counterpart is however endangered, threatened by hunting, habitat loss and interbreeding with domestic animals.
