African Buffalo

The African buffalo is regarded as the most dangerous of the Big Five, primarily because it will incessantly pursue a perceived attacker. Furthermore, solitary males employ the 'attack is the best defence' tactic, though large herds are fairly relaxed and unlikely to charge. Buffalo herds have fairly predictable movements, seeking out good grazing and water during the early morning and late afternoon. Size: Shoulder height 1,6m; weight 400kg to 900kg; horns up to 1.25m long; female somewhat smaller than male. Distribution: Widespread, but large populations occur only in parks.
