Significance of Nandi in Hinduism

Nandi, the bull is what Lord Shiva uses for transport. In Hinduism, Gods are often depicted with their favourite animals, whether cows, elephants, snakes, turtles or even rats! Used either as pets or vehicles. This made animals sacred for many centuries and this is what helped preserve our wildlife although now the influences of the West has changed us to some extent.
