    What a great face! I’m afraid extinction looms for so many

  • Hi Barbara yes it is very sad and disappointing that man disregards these beautiful animals. Once they are all gone in the wild, then these destructive humans will complain there are none left! Thanks ever so much for stopping by and for the fav! x

    Top shot Janine… He looks like he is ready for a trip to the hairdressers… It is sad when you think about their future in the wild with the wanton destruction of their habitat taking place.. Not good at all.

  • Hi Keith, yes when they are all gone then people will complain huh! Thanks mate for the kindness you have expressed in your comment here. I appreciate the fav and your continued support xx
