Buffalo

Buffaloes are a member of the Big 5 and very volatile creatures. They use their horns, which are extremely powerful, for fighting. Buffaloes live in herds which often number in the thousands. Their front hooves are bigger than their hind ones in order to support the weight of their great head and neck. Males and females have horns, but the males' are usually bigger. Their natural habitat includes grass, shade and water. They mate and give birth to calves during the rainy season.
