Mr. Pringle gives the following description of a Cape buffalo hunt.
The Cape buffalo is regarded by naturalists as quite a distinct species from other buffaloes.
The horns resemble those of the Cape buffalo, being broad at the base and covering nearly the entire forehead.
The skin of the Cape buffalo is made into shields and targets, and is so hard that a musket ball will scarcely penetrate it.
They differ greatly from the Cape buffalo, to be met with further south.
That the Cape buffalo is nine feet from nose to root of tail.
