The Cape buffalo is certainly no exception. It is known to have a very fierce temper and to be extremely unpredictable. When many visitors see the cape buffalo, for the first time, does not seem to be one of the more dangerous animals, especially since mostly they are seen in big herds of a few hundred animals. In general it is the older male animals that when excluded from of the main herd, are the dangerous ones. They mostly join together with a few other older male animals. They are an easy prey for a hungry pride of lions and therefore can be very aggressive. When a buffalo decides to attack, they do not give warning charges, but just go for their “victim”. In Africa, they are also nicknamed “killer cows”. In an instant the powerful and large animal can turn from a docile gentile looking giant, into a fierce charging mass of muscle.
