RRRIIIP!... A magestic lioness quickly rips open a cardboard box to retrive her "prey" at the Senaca Park Zoo. She proudly leaps on the hood of a mock African bus that was made to be an easy way to look at the lions. The lion enjoys her lunch while posing for many pictures such as the one shown above. She knocks on the window with her precious cow leg to make sure everyone is looking. Then the lioness starts licking her treat like it is a lollipop. She presses her massive furry paws against the window, and then with big golden eyes, she stares at my dad looking smug. This hoof is mine. All mine!
Thank you, Sedona, for being my guest blogger today. Sedona is my
nine(almost ten)-year-old daughter. The picture above doesn't do the lioness justice. It is hard to describe in words what it is like to be inches away from an animal whose head seems as large as an oven door. She looked at me. I will never forget it.
Do you have a local zoo to visit? See anything incredible there?
