The buffalo is the first species of animal the player finds in the game. There are 10 different types of buffalo. They are available in proper gameplay from Savannah 1, or as soon as the player completes the first tutorial, excluding Buff the Magic Dragon, which can be found from Savannah 5 onwards.

- Wild: Buffalo move relatively slowly.
- When ridden: When the player first lassos a buffalo, the buffalo will charge for a short amount of time and smash anything in the way, an ability gained when the player upgrades their habitat to level 3. After it charges, the buffalo moves at a slightly faster pace than wild buffalo.
- When angry: Buffalo buck jerkily, much like a bull, in an attempt to throw the player off and make them crash.
- In habitat: Buffalo walk around, occasionally grazing the ground of the habitat.
- Selected in habitat: Buffalo wave their head and move their body from side to side, with the legs waving like jelly.
If the player has upgraded their buffalo habitat to level 1, buffalo will move towards the player when they are in the air, giving the player some safety if their lasso size is very small or they miss their jump. Buffalo are useful as, when they are first lassoed, they rush forward and smash any obstacles in their path, if their habitat is upgraded to level 3. This ability becomes very useful in longer runs and increases in strength throughout upgrades.
