Are Buffalo Aggressive or Placid? It Depends…

Nyati is the Swahili name for the African or Cape buffalo. It is often regarded as being the most aggressive and dangerous amongst the Big Five animals. However this largely depends on whether it is encountered on its own, or in a herd. In the former instance, buffalos are generally only solitary as older males. In most cases, its aggressive behaviour is in retaliation to its predators and against hunting attempts. These animals also have exceptional memories. They are known to recognise both humans and lions that have hurt it in the past. Indeed, they are know to attack their past attackers when they meet them at their next encounter.

When part of the herd,  buffalo are generally quite placid unless it or one of its members is under threat. In this case, they assume aggressive behaviour to protect their own. This represents the need to both give and receive respect in all relationships.

When you wear this bangle with the Buffalo Silver Plated Bangle, feel encouraged to put things into perspective. Evaluate a situation from all angles before you react. For that is the power of buffalo wisdom!
