This buffalo certainly looks fearsome with its body language but this i think belies its very gentle nature , there were talks of these being introduced to my country Mexico quite a number of years ago for farming, but as far as i know nothing ever happened

There is a debate about how much wild water buffalo blood there is is the Port Lympne herd. This cow has the longest horns. Domestic specimens usually have much smaller horns: they are used for milk in many countries - there are even a few in the UK.
