I like the horn shape. It seems that all of the buffalo have the short, curly horns like a sheep.

Numaan, guessing is only important for me when my guess is a wish. Guessing is not hard, wishing is not forbidden. I am really happy CollectA decided to make this magnificent creature that was very wanted here! cheers
I think the angle is giving the impression that horns are not wide enough or are not in a correct angle but maybe it is only a little and wrong suspection. I am almost sure it will look fantastic in real! Very Happy:D:D
Many thanks! :)
Hi Roger

I love your guesses so continue guessing, it is great because I think you are quite good at getting things right so it is always nice to read your messages Very Happy 

You are right, the photo does not do justice to the horns, I will see if I can post another picture.

The horns vary so much between wild and domestic buffalo's. In fact, through research it is the domestic variants that tend to have the longer, larger horns, I dont know why.  The Wild counterparts tend to have smaller horns but this is not always the case.  I think in this case the horns should not be too over enlarged and too big otherwise it just goes from far from reality and so this was modeled on a realistic set of  horns.  Will see what I can find and post for you :-)
Thanks Numaan! Very Happy

Congratulations, my friend! What a beautiful model! You've got all reason to be proud of it.

[quote="Numaan"]Dear all

This is my favourite animal and a highlight for me of the 2014 Wildlife collection.  The impressive Wild Water (Indian) Buffalo (Bubalus arnee).  I did put some clues out there in another discussion and some of you guessed right (including you Roger!) but I had to keep my mouth shut.  You are all too intuitive these days, far more than ever before Very Happy Very Happy 

Note that this sculpt is modeled on a beautiful photo of a Wild water buffalo from the Kazirangha national park in India.  It is one of the last remaining herds of truly wild buffalo in Asia and the Kazirangha is only a handful of hotspots on Indian soil where these magnificent beasts are free to roam.  These look very different from the common domesticated form and are now very much endangered due to poaching, disease from domestic cattle and inter-breeding with other domestic buffalo.  I hope this species can be saved!

Enjoy Very Happy

Thanks for extra picture, the figure is more than good for me. Very Happy
As you said, it is not always easy what is a domestic and a wild Asian buffalo and we find some differences in horn shape. we find often the lower half of the horns more horizontal with the body and then curving upwards but also like these.
The picture is quite close but the face look short or wide, maybe cheeck area and top of the snout closer to the eyes needed to be narrowed? Hard to see in a dark figure and we don't want it taking too long to arrive our collections! Laughing Very Happy

Hi Roger

thanks for your suggestions. However the buffalo varies in size, shape and horns in so many pictures that it is hard to find the one true definitive picture of the buffalo. Some are round, some are square shaped, some have shorter faces, others have long faces.

Just like us Embarassed I mean faces, of course. Nobody is alike. Everyone is loving the figure, me too... and it is a very antecipated one! It is great as it is! cheers
