Water Buffalo

I am not sure if this is a water buffalo or water ox. Any idea? This was taken at Cabela's last year.

@Ladyfi, not it isn't a painting, it was one of the many Taxidermy (sorry not sure what you call the animals that was processed by taxidermy) animal displays at Cabela's.

I'm guessing a water buffalo. The photo includes some nice shadows.

An amazing display of the water buffalo! And the scenic background gives a feel of its environment! Gorgeous!

Cabela's does have some neat looking critters. It does look like the water buffalo I saw in Costa Rica. Great shot!

Hi Rohit, sorry for the confusion on my foto. Yes, the animal is not live so the background is my represntation of serenity hehehe.

Whichever it is, I would keep my distance.

This is a fantastic shot with great textures and tones.

It is a painting, but is so real.

chubskulit said...

Hi Costin, it is not a painting but a real display at the store. Well the wall is painted of course but the animal isn't part of the painting.

Hello Systah!

Carabao sa atoa... Yahooo!!!

What you meant "a real display?". Was the carabao real in the store. Ano ba yan? Gulo mo talaga? Pati, utak ko, pina-ikot mo?

Hope you all had a great w/end and a blessed week to come.

Hugs,
