Buffalo is the only animal out of the Big 5 which is not endangered. Water buffaloes are used for preparing agricultural lands or for carrying heavy objects. The African buffalo can be very unpredictable at times and are used for protection from other predators such as lions and crocodiles. They also have a reputation for attacking hunters if required.
