The #wildasianwaterbuffalo(Bubalus arnee), also called the #WildWaterBuffalo, the #WildAsianBuffalo, the #AsianBuffalo, the #AsiaticBuffalo, the #Arni, and the #Arnee, is a large species of bovine native to India and Southeast Asia. It has been listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List since 1986 and its population has declined about 50% in the past 30 years, a trend that is expected to continue. Out of the about 3,400 buffalo left in the world, 3,100 live in India, most in Assam. This species is most likely the descendant of the #DomesticWaterBuffalo. The Wild Asian Water Buffalo can weigh more than 2,500 pounds. It can grow to be more than nine feet long from nose to tail. Its rack of horns alone can extend more than six feet across, the widest of any living bovid. This #buffalo is active during the day and at night. It forms herds of about 30 individuals, mostly females and young. It is primarily a grazer, feeding on multiple different types of grasses. Because of its size, only the toughest predators can take down a buffalo. Tigers, crocodiles, Asiatic Black Bears, and Komodo Dragons have been known to feed on this species. The main threats the Wild Asian Water Buffalo faces are interbreeding, hunting, habitat loss, diseases and parasites, and competition with domestic cattle.
