Often animals have companions of different species as this frolicking Appaloosa and Queensland Blue Heeler can attest. Since horses are herding animals, their owners will provide a companion animal....donkey, goat, llama...rather than another horse. They become their new "herd" and have a calming influence on their horse pals.

The name Pawnee comes from the term pariki, which means "horn," and refers to the typical hair style.Their hair was plucked or shaved with sharp knives and the middle strip was greased to stand up. Their language is part of a larger group of languages called the Caddoan. Other Caddoans called them the Awahi. One name they give themselves is Ckirhki Kuruuriki, which means "We look like wolves" or Chahiksichahiks, "men of men" .
They differed significantly in their mode of life from the classic Plains cultural type, such as that of the Arapaho, Cheyenne or Sioux. ThePawnee were a settled, agricultural people, occupying large, relatively permanent villages made up of earth lodges.

"Black Death" - Cape Buffalo
Cape Buffalo are considered to be the most dangerous of the Big 5 game animals in Africa. In his novel, “Black Death”, Robert Ruark said the look of a Cape Buffalo says, “You owe me money!”. The hide on a bull’s neck is up to 2 inches thick, which makes them almost impervious to any lion attack. They are known to kill lion cubs as a preventative measure. They are terrifically unforgiving and will seek out and ambush anyone who hurts them. They’re 4 times stronger than an ox and more agile. Hunters are very wary of them as they have killed or injured more hunters than any other animal.
