The small herd of water buffalo that wander around in the open property near my school are enjoying all of the mud that the recent rains have brought. There seem to be several animals in the herd. Some of them are younger animals and a few of them are albinos. We don’t see the water buffalos very often, so it is fun when we do see them.
It has been raining every few days this week and the water buffalo have been seen wallowing in a low area adjacent to the school’s building. During breaks, the students peer out at the water buffalo and observe them as they charge through the mud. These city kids are not used to seeing water buffalo in their daily lives. The animals don’t seem to do much other than walk around looking for vegetation to munch and lie in the mud. However, it is a interesting sight to see the water buffalo living in Bangkok’s highly populated areas.
