Details van African Buffalo (Syncerus caffer)

Africa's only wild cattle species, easily separated from domestic cattles known to gather in large herds of hundreds of animals, but they can also wander about independently. The savannah buffalo is  heavily built, with relatively short, storky legs.

Ears are large fringed with hair and hang below massive  horns. The buffalo is easily distinguished from other animals because of its dark black color and its characteristic horns smaller and lighter curving outward, backwards, and upwards;

. The forest buffalo is reddish to dark red brown in color, more lightly built and smaller. Bulls lack the heavy boss.

The lion is the only one among the predators which can fight the buffalo, but even lions are often forced to resign.
