In addition to harboring the world’s largest population of greater one-horned rhinos, India’s Kaziranga National Park is also home to the largest population of wild Asian water buffalos. The world populations of both species number only a few thousand individuals.  An adult water buffalo can reach more than one ton in weight, while a large male greater one-horned rhino can tip the scales at more than two tons.
