The peoples of Sub-Saharan Africa from their earliest history have remained close to nature and have created a network of significant relationships with the animal world, which united myth, proverb and popular wisdom. Animals were part of the symbolism of tribal power and semi-aquatic creatures are prominent with crocodiles appearing as the guardians of law and order.
