Animal interaction video
A YouTube video posted this morning, showing an atack on a young cape buffalo
by a pride of lions. During the attack, a croc attempts to steal the buffalo
from the lions. Then the rest of the buffalo herd returns to rescue the
original victim. And yes, the cape buffalo do in fact, use both their hoves
and their horns in their counter-attack.
Really has to make one think about the implications of dinosaur herding in both
attack and defense. Do the horns provide analogs to ceratpo(s)ian defensive
use of horns? Do the hoves provide alanogs to sauropod trampling of predators?
