I am a Karabao (a.k.a. Water Buffalo). I am known as many things around the world as the word "carabao" is from Spanish derived from Visayan karabàw. I am also known as kalabáw (Tagalog), kábaw (Cebuano), kebo (Javanese), kerbau - (Malay), and karbouw (Indonesian|Dutch) .
I have always loved hot and humid weather. As long as I have water, like the amazing Talofofo River, I can keep calm and cool no matter the temperature. When it gets really hot, a good spa day and mud coating always helps me to relax. I love to eat a ton of veggies to keep my figure up. I am able to lift a ton and have been a great daily helper to many people across Asia when it comes to the heavy lifting. I haven't weighted myself in a while but we full grown Karabaos normally get to 930-1,100 lbs and can be up to 5 feet tall.
I first came to be a resident of Guam for work. As the Spanish brought me from the Philippines for farming in colonial times, I quickly became the most popular type of land transportation and became a very important member of the islander's farming family.
In my free time, I really enjoy the water activities. When I am not hard at work or relaxing in mud coats, I try to find time to join the Valley of the Latte guides on Kayaking tours. Something about being on the water and hanging out with interesting and exciting folks from all over the world really makes me happy.
I hope to welcome you to the Kayaking tours soon!
One thing I am in need of, is a great name, if you could suggest something, that would be great! And if you suggest a name for me, you could win a great Adventure River Cruise for 2, some of the best food on island, and one of us stuffed Karabaos can even come home with you!
Quick Profile: Babui
Age: 4 Years Old
Favorite Activities: Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Hanging out with my Carabao Buddies at the Mud Spa Treatments
Occupation: Valley of the Latte Welcome Committee Assistant
I am a Babui (a.k.a. Pig). There are two types of pigs found on Guam: the wild pig (babuen hålomtåno’) and the domestic pig (babui).
You can find my friends freely roaming the grounds at the Valley of the Latte Adventure Park welcoming and interacting with visitors. When it gets really hot, I am probably hanging out around the mud coating area with my Carabao buddies.
I first came to Guam around the 17th century Colonial Period and was brought over by the Spanish. Since arriving on the island, I have helped people celebrate fiestas and special occasions. These days, I am an assistant to the Valley of the Latte Adventure Park Welcoming Committee and I really enjoy saying "Hafa Adai" to all the visitors and especially the kids on field trips. It may sound a little like "oink oink", but that's just my accent.
While some like the Adventure River Cruise and others prefer Kayaking, I really enjoy joining the Stand Up Paddling Tours. It is so much fun standing on the cool waters and getting to travel far into the jungle with friends.
I hope to see you out on the waters soon. Please suggest a name for me!
Si Yu'os Ma'ase!
I am an island Deer (a.k.a. Binadu) and I absolutely love the Adventure Riverboat Cruise at the Valley!
Although I really love to relax in the shade and eat leaves, I am also up for some fruits, grass, and berries. I am also more of a night kind of deer. When all the visitors head home and another great sunset comes across the Talofofo River, I stay up and chat with my buddies around the Animal Sanctuary.
I was first introduced to Guam by the Spanish Governor Mariano Tobias between 1770 and 1774. Since being brought to the island, us deer really started to enjoy the amazing tropical weather and abundance of foliage to chow down on. We normally grow to almost 5 feet tall, can weigh up to 130 pounds, and have antlers that average about 16 inches.
Come on down to the Valley of the Latte Gift Shop and visit me and my friends. If you could, please suggest a name for me! Do not forget, you could win my favorite Adventure River Boat Cruise experience for 2!!
See you on the Cruise soon!
