Where does he feel at his best?

Meadows with large, shady trees and provide a shelter for shade. A pool, sloping edges and not too deep, they also love it.

What does he like to eat?

than cow's milk. Apart from being used as drinking milk, it is mainly used to produce butter and cheese, such as mozzarella. Indian butter is called ghee there and is liquid
