Schleich - African Cape Buffalo
African Cape Buffalo
The cape buffalo is a massive bovine with sturdy legs. In contrast, its coat is sparse and coarse.
In the mountains, buffalos climb up to 4000 metres’ altitude and always live near the water.
Cape buffalo form family groups of 3-10 animals. However, they can also form herds of several hundred. The herd is directed by a female while an adult male has the dominant position. During the day they wallow in watering holes, rest in the shade or wander within their territory. They will not leave this area unless forced to do so. At night the cape buffalo feed, grazing on grass and hard reeds.
