Philippines National Animal

Carabaos (water buffalo) are typically associated with farmers, being the farm animal of choice for pulling the plow and the cart used to haul farm produce to the market. Although there is no law that decrees the carabao to be a national symbol in the Philippines it is generally considered by most Filipinos to be their national animal. Government agencies have come together to improve the marketability of the species.
Water buffalo have been domesticated in the Philippines as far back as pre-Hispanic times and are often used by farmers in the Philippines to plow the fields and as a means of transportation. The carabao is one of the most important animals in the country, especially in agriculture.
