Carabaos, which are a type of water buffalo domestic to Southeast Asia, feed off grass and other similar kinds of vegetation. These foods are found on the natural lands of their habitats. In the wild, carabaos can be found on grassy lands near water expanses such as lakes and wide rivers. In locations such as the Philippines and Malaysia, the carabao is commonly domesticated and used on a farm. It is often the animal of choice to pull a cart or wagon to a market, or pull a plow in a farmer's field. The carabao can also be kept for its milk, and may eventually be slaughtered for meat produce.
