It’s not uncommon for luxurious gadgets, watches, supercars or properties to be valued at several millions of dollars, but when it comes to animals, things are a bit more tricky, as few animals actually have what it takes to command such enormous price tags. One of these animals is the biggest-horned and disease-free buffalo in Africa, which has been valued at no less than 176 million rand, which is about $11.1 million.
Named Horizon, the buffalo’s horns measure 55 inches in width, but the fact that it doesn’t suffer from the notorious tuberculosis disease also has some bearing on its overall price tag. Horizon is currently owned by four people, and each of them is entitled to provide him with ten buffalo cows each year and keep the offspring. Breeding buffalos can be quite lucrative in Africa, as some would pay handsomely to get their hands on the offspring of healthy, large-horned specimens such as Horizon.
