Favorite thing: The African Water Buffalo is one of the socalled "big five". It's an aggressive and bad-tempered beast, killing more people than lions or crocodiles do. They will charge for any reason, at the least sense of danger. It can reach a weight of 900 kilograms. A wounded buffalo will fake dead to let predators come near and thus deliver a last desperate attack. Buffaloes lives close to swampy ground where they can wallow. A male is recognizable by the thickness of his horns.
