Battle with Buffalo

Not only is Twitter a great way to keep up with friends, but it also is a great way of sharing news and the latest finds on the WWW. Today one of my contacts found this video on YouTube and since she shared the URL on Twitter I can now share it with you. It's an amazing video where a group of buffalo comes to the rescue of a calf that is snatched by lions. Once again it shows what you can do if you close ranks and go for it.

Some extra info, the guy (Frank) talking the strange language in the background is actually speaking Afrikaans. A language that evolved from Dutch as it used to be spoken in the 17th century. I can understand most of what he is telling his mates on the radio.

Wow, and what about that crocodile trying to drag the baby buffalo in at the same time?!? Amazing video, indeed!
