Dang Van Ghen, a farmer living in HCMC’s suburban district of Cu Chi, is the owner of a unique pink buffalo. Ghen bought the buffalo in 2001. The 30-year-old buffalo now weighs one ton. Some say that its pink skin may be because of albinism which causes abnormality related to pigmentation. Aside from the distinctive color, the pink buffalo is as strong as a normal buffalo.

Mr. Ghen’s buffalo has been famous and requested to be present at inauguration ceremonies of some events. Many believe that the pink buffalo may bring them good luck.
