African eyes…

…at Elephant Whispers….

…a cheetah at

Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre.

 

 

Say Hello to ‘Limpy’ the lioness.

So named because she was born

with a malformed foot.

This night while on a game drive

a sharp bend in the track nearly

had our vehicle run over Limpy.

She settle 15-20 feet away, called to her cubs,

then turned and looked at me.

I still get goose bumps all over when I see this image.

No fences, no barrackades,

just mutual trust separated us.

Sadly she had to be put down

in less than twelve months

as she had contracted a contagious disease

of some sort.

R.I.P Limpy
