The female Buffalo, also known as ‘Cow’, are somewhat red brown and have narrow horns. They weigh 550-700 kilograms which makes them slightly smaller than the bull. Much of the gang is made up of female relatives and their young.
The male buffalo or “bull” is truly competitive by nature. They regularly compete for breeding and ranking within the gang, through head on clashes. In this case the strongest bull may mate with the female or lead the rest of the gang.
The Cape Buffalo is one of the most tenacious herbivores in the animal kingdom. They are the largest sub-Saharan bovine and form part of the big five, meaning they are especially difficult to hunt on foot. Their average lifespan in their natural habitat is 15-18 years, which is remarkably shorter than it is in captivity.
Baby elephants are one of the cutest and most mysterious animals regardless of their colossal exterior. They are born weighing a minimum of 90 kilograms. This is a lot more than the human baby however, neither one has any survival instincts at birth.
