This Bull Australian Water Buffalo is what dreams are made of.

Australian Water Buffalo are big, powerful and dangerous animals. They are the third largest of all the buffalo species. A mature Bull Water Buffalo can weigh over 1700-1800lbs. Both the cow and bull Australian Water Buffalo have horns, with the wild Water Buffalo having heavier mass and greater spreads than ranch buffalo. Ranch Bull Water Buffalo tend to have the same mass as the cows, which is what makes it worth your while to pursue wild, free range, Water Buffalo.

A trophy free range Australian Water Buffalo will typically have horns measuring anywhere from 27-40 inches in length per horn, and have bases measuring 15-24 inches.

Australian Water Buffalo only have 1 real predator once they are grown, which is the huge salt water croc, but the calves are susceptible to packs of dingos.

Wild Oxen are typically light red in color and with a white blaze on their nose and quite often will have white blazes down their legs. Wild Oxen are much flightier than the Australian Water Buffalo and will bolt into the thick brush the moment they feel threatened.
