Caption: African buffaloes (Syncerus caffer). Cow (female) African buffalo with her calf. Cows give birth to a single calf after a gestation period of just over 11 months. The majority of calves are born at the beginning of the rainy season, although they can be born all year round. Calves weigh around 40 kilograms when born and are able to stand within 10 minutes. They are weaned after 4 to 6 months. Males leave their mother to join bachelor herds at 2 years of age, while females remain with their mother's herd. African buffaloes are found on the savannahs and woodlands of sub-Saharan Africa. They feed on grasses and other vegetation. Photographed in Vaalbos, South Africa.
