Tanzania Safari: Big 5 Animals

The "Big Five" are among the most deadly mammals in Africa.  The term was originally invented by big game hunters based on how difficult each animal was to hunt.  The expression is still used by tourist and wildlife guides but isn't actually contingent on the animal's size.  

They are as follows:

1. Lion

2. Elephant

3. Buffalo

4. Rhino

5. Leopard
