Artist's Description

Oils on canvas.

This is just an enlargement of my Cape Buffalo painting. I am so happy that
he is featured on Exotic Mammals!!!

I really loved painting this animal. Every crease, wrinkle and hair changes his expression and I tried to make him look as dangerous as he is.

Often covered in mud (they love to wallow – it relieves the itching of tick bites and dislodges some of the ticks as well) they have tough hides and remarkable abilities to heal if wounded.

This old guy has lots of experience and has fought his share of lions. He is still in his prime but the day will come when age and younger bulls will be the end of him and the lions will have their feast.

But, until that day… don’t mess with him!!!
