A fussy lot, these Campanian water buffaloes.
No, they refuse to live on cold miserable boglands, no, never in foglands, loglands, not even on heather-strewn English moorlands.

If it had to be marshlands, it had to be in Italy, preferably not too far from the lovely Amalfi Coast. Think nice old ladies. No, they wouldn't fancy biking down to Salerno, but yes, they do adore its sunny and mild Mediterranean climate.

You wouldn't find these content bovine mammals singing happy cow tunes, but you just might catch them belting out O Sole Mio.
