Beasts of Burden

Carabaos, which are a subspecie of the water buffalo, are mostly associated with rural life in the Philippines - as farm animals to plow the fields and for transportation. The beasts of burden are usually brought to rivers or water holes after doing duties at the farm to cool down, since they do not have sweat glands. Carabaos also provide milk and occasionally, as source of meat.
