Disney's Animal Kingdom News Round Up for October 21, 2015: Buffaloes and cupcakes

Asian water buffalo: According to the Disney Parks blog, some new water buffalo have arrived at the Maharajah Jungle Trek. Rose, Dorothy and Blanch (yes those are the names of the characters on Golden Girls) have joined the exhibit with blackbuck and Eld's deer. It appears they are replacing the banteng, a much rarer species. These guys are actually a domesticated species. In fact, more people depend on the water buffalo than any other domesticated species in the world.

Bye bye banteng 


Cupcakes to spook ya: It seems every time a holiday rolls around, a specialty cupcake gets rolled out. So, on Halloween (and for about a month thereafter) you can purchase a bat cupcake at Kusafiri pastries and the Isle of Java kiosk. As an aside, the Tusker House will feature pumpkin mini-muffins and pumpkin cheesecake during this time, as well.

Not a cupcake
