Buffalo Predation and Protective Instincts

Buffalos have long been hunted by African tribes as a means of providing sustenance and survival. After all, the natives use every part of the buffalo. From the meat for food, the hide for clothing and shelter, and its horns as tools. In this sense, the buffalo is regarded as a symbol of abundance for the “gifts” it has provided to man.

In the wild, the buffalos main predators are lions, leopards and hyenas. Due to their hefty size, it often takes a group of lionesses in order to successfully bring a fully grown buffalo down. as a result, leopards and hyenas will usually only attack a calf. In this case, the herd will come together to defend their own and drive away the predator. Occasionally it has been the case that the hunter becomes the hunted! Without doubt, buffalos are known to be great protectors and represent both community and sacrifice.

In light of the above, this necklace is a gorgeous celebration of this animal. It pairs beautifully with the Buffalo Gold Plated Bangle too.

Buffalo are “splendid beings in their own right”

“Let us remember that animals are not mere resources for human consumption. They are splendid beings in their own right, who have evolved alongside us as co-inheritors of all the beauty and abundance of life on this planet” ― Marc Bekoff
