About the Buffalo:

The African Buffalo (Syncerus caffer) is a large African bovine. It is a very robust animal, with a very long and stocky body. Savannah-type buffaloes have black or dark brown coats with age, Old bulls have whitish circles around their eyes and Females tend to have more of a reddish coats.

The Cape buffalo is susceptible to many diseases, including foot and mouth disease and bovine tuberculosis. Adult males spar often, whether in play or an actual fight. Calves spar a bit while the females never spar at all. Buffalo are considered extremely dangerous, goring and killing over 200 people every year.
