Thundering and crashing through the bush around me, this massive herd of buffalo (Syncerus caffer) a few hundred strong was generating an immense dust storm. As their headlong rush began to slow, a few of them decided to pause and ponder the strange animal in their midst. Interestingly, they were all exhibiting to one degree or another, the buffaloes curious ability to partially shut the eye exposed to the light while keeping the shaded eye wide open.
