Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A large mammalian herbivore. It is powerfully built and has long curved horns.

Water buffalos are domestic animals roughly twice the size of a standard cow. They are a common choice for trader's pack animals, and dwarven settlers may bring one or more water buffalos to pull their wagons on embark. Wild water buffalos may appear as wandering animals in tropical wetland biomes.

Water buffalos are grazing animals; they require a large pasture to survive. Producing up to four times the butchering returns of an ordinary cow, they can feed 7-14 dwarves for an entire year. Water buffalo cows can also be milked for additional sustenence. Because of their voracious appetites, water buffalos are a challenging choice for livestock, and their large size makes them dangerous in an overcrowded pasture.

Some dwarves like water buffalos for their water wallowing.
