The buffalo horns, flat, wrinkled, and without sharp undulations, appear very close to the base. They bend first at the sides and back, then upwards.
In the old males, they widen extraordinarily at the bottom, till when they cover the whole forehead, leaving free only a small median strip.
Their hair is scarce and very rare on the body. On the other hand, the big ears and the apex of the tail are furnished by long beards. Several parts of the body are entirely naked, and only the head and the legs appear covered by a real mantle.
The females and the juveniles have a thicker coat, which gives them a more or less pinkish brown tint, tending to black.
Their height varies from 1,10 m to 1,60 m, depending on the sex and the region. Their length varies between the two and the three meters. The adult male weighs from 600 to 900 kg.
The diffusion area of the buffalo is very vast but very fragmented. It includes all the zone extending south of the Sahara, from Senegal up to Sudan and Ethiopia, as well as the whole equatorial and southern African region.
They prefer the plain to the mountains and settle in areas where water is never scarce because it is indispensable to them. Only in extreme cases do they pay for very wet sludge.
Their temperament appears sedentary. These robust animals are speedy, agile, and resistant. They can climb steep slopes, cross the most intricate forests, cross swamps, and swim in rivers. It is a very sociable mammal.
