Buffalo are known to be extremely social and live in large, mixed herds anywhere between 15 and 2 000 individuals.

Horns are the most characteristic feature of a buffalo and can help distinguish the age and sex of an individual. When faced with predators, the herd will form a circle around younger, older or weaker animals, exposing their large and sharp horns as intimidation.

The rhino is the most endangered species of the Big Five. Rhino poaching worldwide hit a 15-year high in 2009. The illegal trade is being driven by an Asian demand for horns, made worse by increasingly sophisticated poachers who are now using veterinary drugs, poison, cross bows and high caliber weapons to kill rhinos. Very few rhinos now survive outside national parks and reserves.
