Cape Buffalo (Syncerus caffer)

One of the most dangerous animals on the East African grasslands is a solo Cape Buffalo. These beasts think nothing of dropping their head and charging. Those horns are NOT something you want to tangle with.

From Wikipedia:
Known as one of the "big five", "Black Death" or "widowmaker" in Africa, the African buffalo is widely regarded as a very dangerous animal, as it gores and kills over 200 people every year. Buffalo are sometimes reported to kill more people in Africa than any other animal, although the same claim is also made of hippos and crocodiles. Buffalo are notorious among big game hunters as very dangerous animals, with wounded animals reported to ambush and attack pursuers.
