Cape Buffalo

African Bovine
Syncerus caffer
Shoulder - slight downward with left gaze
Highveld Taxidermists - South Africa

You will be amazed at this specimen, truly an awesome piece. He is big and would need a large space with a high wall stud to mount it on to do it justice.

This particular mounting style is a signature piece for Highveld Taxidermists.

The African Buffalo or Cape Buffalo is a large African bovine. The Cape Buffalo is the typical subspecies, and the largest one, found in Southern and East Africa.  The adult Buffalo's horns are its characteristic feature; they have fused bases, forming a continuous bone shield across the top of the head referred to as a "boss".

Cape Buffalo are widely regarded as very dangerous animals, as according to some estimates they gore and kill over 200 people every year.
