Around Duba these are the main source of food for the lions. But don't be fooled by their sleepy looks. They kill almost as many people as hippos do. Even lions single out individuals and attack in a pack, and are often driven off by the big male bulls.
The birds around the herd here are White Egrets, but often you will see oxpeckers, who feed off parasites on the buffalo's hide (another theory is they feed of the buffalo's blood!).
