They graze on grass, shrubs and other plants. They swallow their food without chewing it and later regurgitate and chew a cud. Cape Buffalo drink a lot of water and also spend a lot of time wading in water to cool themselves off in hot weather. information found on http://www.enchantedlearning.com/subjects/mammals/buffalo/Capebuffalo.shtml

Buffalo, being the great African Cape Buffalo and the Asian Water Buffalo (NOT the American Bison, which is not a true buffalo), eat primarily grass that grows on the savannah or in the wetlands that they wade in.

The relationship between cattle egrets and cape buffalo would not be commensalism if the egrets removed ticks from the buffalo, because both species would benefit. The buffalo would be tick free and the egrets would have food to eat.

There are three species of buffalo, the water buffalo, cape buffalo, and American buffalo. Water buffalo are the largest, weighing between 1,500 and 2,650-pounds. The cape buffalo can be found all over sub-Saharan Africa. The American buffalo, also called bison, live on prairies, plains or in river valleys.

A good example would be when the killdeer bird rests on top of a cape buffalo. The cape buffalo protects the killdeer but the killdeer doesnt really do anything for the buffalo.

They prey on a number of herbivores, but mainly zebra, warthog, cape buffalo, and various antelope species.

A water buffalo is one of the two types of buffalo, the other being the African Buffalo (Cape Buffalo). The American Bison, despite being called "Buffalo", are not actually buffalo at all.

It is 460 miles from Cape May, NJ to Buffalo, NY. It will take 9 hours and 25 minutes.

I said Mutualism. But my Professor marked this wrong on the test. His answer was Commensalism. Since there is no apparent benefit for the cape buffalo.
