    Gorgeous capture, Alan! Looks like he doesn’t want anyone in his den…..except maybe for lunch!

  • you are quite right Mary! Their food is put out to them while they are caged in for a few mins!! sometimes you stand only 4 meters from them, it’s very unnerving!!!!!
    thanks again

    Glad they have enough room to stretch out and feel like they are in natural surroundings. It makes a difference. Barb

  • it’s the least you can offer “wild” animals Barb. I can’t stand going to normal zoo’s where the animals are caged up with hardly any space,it signifies humans capabilities!
