Portrait of a "Dagga Boy" Cape Buffalo

Old bull Cape Buffalos who have left the herd, often due to age or health conditions (sometimes pushed out by younger dominant males), will roam solitary or sometimes in small groups of other old males. In South Africa they have the nickname Dagga Boy (meaning mud), supposed stemming from their often mud caked appearance as they frequently wallow to crust themselves in mud due to hair loss etc. Weary looking now, I can imagine he was a force to be reckoned with in his prime. Loved his stare!
