A bubalus bubalis is a water buffalo or a domestic Asian water buffalo.
That depends on which "buffalo" you mean. The place-name Buffalo, New York is a native corruption of the French beau fleuve meaning beautiful river.

The African Buffalo can be called the Cape Buffalo, affalo, nyati, Black Death, or mbogo. The American Buffalo (which is not really a buffalo) can be called the American Bison, which is a more accurate name since the species is actually a Bison.
Water Buffalo (bubalus bubalis) also known as Arni, Asian Buffalo, Asian Water Buffalo, Asiatic Buffalo, Buffle d'Eau, Buffle de l'lnde, Carabao, Indian Buffalo) originally ranged from eastern Nepal and India, east to Vietnam and south to Malaysia.
