Beautiful surprise with buffaloes




I have a specialization degree in bovine reproduction, but my teacher advisor used to work mainly with water buffaloes. He's from a place full of water (he came from a state that is part of the Amazon Rainforest) where lies the biggest number of buffaloes in my country.

Some days ago he told me and my colleagues that we needed to do a ultrasound scan in the university's female buffaloes so we can see if everything was alright with them. Much to our surprise, we discovered that the eldest one is pregnant! We were scanning her and we saw the pregnancy, about 3 or 4 months old. We got so excited! We only got one male buffalo and apparently he is not mating with any of the girls, so we needed to inseminate them. This pregnancy means that he is finally doing his job. Very Happy



That's the girl that is pregnant. The little one is not her baby, he's the son of other girl. But he is fed by both girls.

Nice photo Vanilla. The water buffalo rings a bell with me when I was in Thailand three years ago. I was totally bowled over with how much revered the buffalo is there, being looked after and pampered like anything, as well as exercised in the sea water. Reason being that they get the buffalo to fight one another, but they are not bad fights. More like friendly ones.

Just found the post I made about the water buffalo in Koh Samui, Thailand:

Very nice photo, Vanilla. Nice the females share the feeding. I had to laugh at male "is finally doing his job"! Laughing
@Dean, I remember those fighters!
