What this lumbering African bovine lacks in style, it makes up for in substance. Not to be confused 

with American bison, the African Buffalo is an animal that can adapt to a wide variety of habitats, runs up to 37 miles per hour and literally cannot be tamed. Over their roughly two-decade lifespan, they hang around in herds that “vote,” while grazing on lands that are increasingly threatened by human development.

Buffalo Top Facts

Bison also known as Buffalo are the largest mammal in North America. Male buffalo which are often called bulls can weigh up to a staggering 2,000 pounds and stand 6 feet tall. Had it not been for private individuals working with states, tribes, and Interior Department the bison would be extinct today.

With that said, here are a few other facts:

No gentle giant: The buffalo’s ornery nature and roughly 35 mile-per-hour top speed leads to numerous injuries and deaths every year, earning it the nickname “black death.” Learn about the strongest animals in the world here.

Who’s the boss?: The base of the male buffalo’s unique, curving horns grow to meet at the top of its head, forming a kind of helmet called a “boss.”

Distant family: Though all members of the family bovinae, “buffaloes” are only from Africa and should not be confused with the American Bison or water “buffaloes!”
