Why do beefalo butt go red?


Recommended Posts

I know it is so you know they will attack as an indicator as well as a way to show mating season but..

why spicifically the rear of the beefalo going red?

 

is this a real animal thing, I couldn't find anything online but it could be??

For some reason I asked it offhandedly and now can't get it out of my head for a reason.

please help

Yes, it's to show they're going into Estrus/heat.
It's almost certainly just extra visual flare to represent that fact!
Like how most animals in heat will have increased body temperature, they fan their rears with their tails.

ooh, interesting. I had no idea about the fan part that is cool!

I thought that it might be just visual flare, thank you for confirming!

I wonder why Klei did that spicifically instead of something like eye changes or horn or something..

in any case, the head deamons are now quiet.

Yeah, they'll turn and fan themselves. Another neat visual cue.

I imagine it might've been designed to be accessible. Facial expressions change quite a lot in animations and seeing the red behind is a constant factor. Truth be told, I dunno!
