Papo African Buffalo #50114 Review:There are very few African Buffalo figures to choose from – this is a good option for your collection. Face is well designed and the horns wrap well over the top of the head. Figure is solid color all over except for the mouth. We would prefer some additional variation in the shading. Good figure from Papo.
African Buffalo Information:The African Buffalo is a large, sturdy, and powerful bovine that is native to the African continent. They are the most numerous of the large game animals, inhabiting the savannas, floodplains, and montane grasslands of sub-Saharan Africa. African Buffalos are social creatures and live in herds of up to several hundred individuals. The members of the herd communicate through lowing, bellowing, and a variety of other vocalizations. African Buffalos are grazers, eating a variety of grasses, as well as herbs, shrubs, and even scavenging the remains of other animals.
African Buffalos have a unique appearance, with their massive heads and curved horns. Their horns are used for protection against predators, and they also use them in displays of dominance within the herd. Males are larger than females and can weigh up to 1000 kg. These animals have a thick, gray-brown hide and are covered with short, coarse hair. They have a large hump on their shoulders, which is composed of muscle and fat for energy storage. African Buffalos are extremely resilient and have adapted to a variety of habitats and climates. They can survive in dry, arid climates for short periods of time by digging for water.
