Caption: African buffalo (Syncerus caffer). This large herbivore eats mainly grass, although its diet also includes leaves and shoots. It lives near forests and water, retreating into them during the hottest parts of the day. The African buffalo is a social animal, living in vast herds which may number up to several thousand individuals. A fully-grown adult can weigh 1000 kilograms and makes a formidable opponent, even for a group of hunting lions. It inhabits all of sub-Saharan Africa, except the southernmost regions. Photographed in the Zambezi floodplain, Zimbabwe.
