Surprise, the water buffalo wins! In fact, this massive animal can pull loads of more than 6 times its own body weight.
Next up: the high jump. Which animal will jump the highest to win this event?
Winner! High jump medal goes to the heifer at 6 feet. Don’t let all those stomachs fool you — a cow can jump.

You scored /5!
