Expert Answer:

Dear Student,

Buffaloes are huge land creatures.

  • They don’t have shelter to protect themselves from the afternoon scorching Sun.  
  • They are under the Sun for more than 10-12 hours daily.
  • Their body colour is dark which absorbs heat faster.
  • Also they don’t have enough sweat glands which actually help to cool down body through perspiration.
  • Buffaloes have to rely on natural water bodies to cool off their bodies.
  • Hence, they enjoy a dip in water on a hot summer afternoon.
