Are cape buffalo and water buffalo the same?
No, they are two separate species: Cape Buffalo are from Africa and possess the scientific name Syncerus caffer and Water Buffalo are from Asia, with the scientific name Bubalus bubalis. Cape Buffalo are also larger and more muscular than water buffalo, and look quite different from Water Buffalo. For instance: A cape buffalo's horns come together at the poll and curve out and up on either side of their heads. A water buffalo's horns grow more to the back of the animal. The Cape Buffalo can also bellow like domestic cattle, along with a series of other vocalizations. Water buffalo only make grunting sounds.

(Asian) wild water buffalo ( Bubalos amee )- the ancestor of the domestic water buffalo. African buffalo , or Cape Buffalo ( Syncerus caffer ) - a distant relative of the waterbuffalo, a large wild bovine plentiful in Africa and a very hardyanimal. It is not considered possible to domesticate the Africanbuffalo. The following two are often termed "buffalo", but are not truebuffalo species: American bison ( Bison bison ) - a wildbovine found in North America in two subspecies, Bison bisonbison and Bison bison athabascae , not usuallydomesticated, although they can be tamed to some extent andcertainly can crossbreed with domestic cattle. European bison or Wisent ,pronounced Vi-zunt, ( Bison bonasus ) - of Asianorigin, and smaller than the American bison, it is the heaviestnative land animal in Europe. Herds roam forests in some EasternEuropean countries, reintroduced from captive animals, since theanimal was rendered extinct in the wild due to over-hunting; thelast wild (prior to reintroduction) Wisent was killed in 1927.se ( Full Answer )

Water buffalos don't resemble the American bison at all; they're about as alike as a sheep and a cow. Well, perhaps a little more alike, but not so you'd confuse them.. Bison were called buffalo because of a perceived resemblance to the Asian water buffalo, which just goes to show people don't use …their powers of observation. ( Full Answer )
The water buffalo is a very important animal in Asian and European agriculture. A lot of Italian Mozzarella is made from buffalo milk.. It's a grazing animal and a vegetarian except when it inadvertantly ingests bugs and worms in its food.. The concept of a water buffalo eating a hippopotamus is a… most unlikely, not to say impossible, one.. Even if a water buffalo should show such carnivorous ambition the hippo would be more than capable of resisting being eaten. Not a lot of creatures eat hippos, even those who live on the same continent - which water buffalos don't, in the wild. ( Full Answer )

Cape buffalo get their food the exact same way that cows do. They graze, using their rough, strong tongues to wrap around a sward of grass, grasp it, pull it into their mouths and use their lower teeth to tear it from the ground, then swallowing it. The process repeats as they graze until they are f…ull, which is when they burp up cud and chew that while they rest. ( Full Answer )

That depends on the size of the ox and the size of the buffalo. Oxen can grow to be much larger than a cape buffalo (like those of the breed Chianina, Charolais or South Devon), whereas the standard weight of a bull cape is only around 2000 lbs. Both animals are capable of growing sharp horns used t…o defend themselves with, and both are very powerful as far as strength is concerned. But with all that it is likely that an ox nor a cape would purposely kill another animal that eats the same food source (grass) as the other. They will definitely fight for dominance, oh yes, but it's rare for such fights to end in death. Quite often the larger animal is the one that will win and the younger or smaller one will become submissive to the larger animal. Oxen are castrated males too, which means they generally will have a more milder temperament than a bull cape, which makes it less inclined to want to kill another bovine-cousin. ( Full Answer )

They love the water, and are often found more often in ponds and streams than on dry land. You won't find them in oceans, rivers lakes or seas though.
