I love living in Africa. It's a beautiful continent, full of opportunity, sunshine, gorgeous people and then the most gorgeous wildlife.
While Flip and I were at the Lory Park Zoo, we had the magnificent opportunity to play with leopard cubs. I am nearly in tears as I am writing this, as I have never seen a leopard in the wild. And I have had my fair share of Kruger Park visits, and a trip to the Serengeti.
Leopards are such graceful animals, but these cousins of the lions, tigers, and jaguars, are extremely shy and elusive in the wild. When not hunting in long grass in the savannahs, they like to hang out in trees, out of plain sight. These gorgeous animals are also near-endangered, as a result of farmers shooting them.
These eyes will stay with me for a long time.
Aren't they just beautiful?
Which wild animal would you like to pet someday?
