Many of us have ever heard of such an animal as a buffalo, which differs from a domestic bull by its massiveness and body size, as well as the presence of huge horns.
These cloven-hoofed animals are divided into 2 large species, they are Indian and African. The buffalo family also includes tamarrow and anoa. Each species has its own peculiarities in the way of life and character of life, environment, etc., about which we wanted to tell a little in our article and show a photo of each species of Buffaloes SVG.
Buffaloes SVG features and habitat
As mentioned above, buffalo is divided into 2 species. The first, Indian, is most often found in northeastern India, as well as in some areas of Malaysia, Indochina and Sri Lanka. The second African buffalo.
This animal gives preference to places with tall grass and reeds near water bodies and marshes, but sometimes it also lives in the mountains (at an altitude of 1.85 km above sea level). It is considered to be one of the largest wild bulls, reaching a height of 2 m and a mass of over 0.9 tons. In the description of the buffalo it is possible to note: its dense body covered with bluish-black wool; the stocky legs which colouring becomes white from below; a wide head with a muzzle, having the form of a square and basically lowered downwards; large horns (to 2 m), bending in the form of a semicircle upwards or diverging in the form of an arch. The cross-section is triangular; it has a long tail with a hard tassel at the end; the African buffalo is located south of the Sahara and, in particular, in areas with low population density, choosing areas with vast meadows of tall cereals and reed beds adjacent to water bodies and forest canopies. This type, in contrast to the Indian one, is smaller in size. The adult Buffaloes SVG is characterized by an average height of up to 1.5 m and weighs 0.7 t.
The distinctive feature of the animal is the buffalo horns, which are highly valued as a hunting trophy. They start from the top and go in different directions and grow initially down and back, and then up and sides, creating a protective helmet. And the horns are very massive and often reach a length of 1m. The torso is covered with a thin, coarse black wool. The animal has a long and hairy tail. The head of the buffalo with its large fringed ears is characterized by a short and wide shape and a thick, powerful neck. Other representatives of these ungulates are the Filipino Tamarrow buffalo and the dwarf anoa buffalo. The peculiarity of these animals is their height, which is 1 m for the first one and 0.9 m for the second one.
Tamarrow only lives in one place, namely, the lands of the Reserve of Tamarrow. Mindoro and ana can be found on Sulawesi Island and they are among the animals listed in the International Red Book. Ana is also divided into 2 species: mountainous and lowland. It should be noted that all buffalo have an excellent sense of smell, acute hearing, but rather weak vision.
