It's not every day that you come across a man and his BFF - buffalo friend forever.

Thai farmer Surat Paewkate was never expecting to form a bond with buffalo Thong Kham when he first became his caretaker.
The 34-year-old was paid to take care of the buffalo - but he says it slowly developed into a friendship.
"Thong Kham is so sweet and canny," he told BBC Thai. "He loves to walk in my paddy field with me on his back."
So it was only natural that he started to post selfies with his beloved buffalo.
His photos quickly went viral, turning him and Thong Kham into instant internet celebrities in Thailand.
But the story took another turn when Mr Paewkate revealed that Thong Kham would soon be sold to another owner.
