'Ode to Creatures'

Do you know that feeling when you are on a subway platform or at the edge of a tall building and you think to yourself, "What if I jumped?" I had that same feeling while visiting a crocodile and snake farm last week. 'What would these guys do if I just climbed over the fence?"

These pictures are dedicated to my friend David Hallgren whose intense preoccupation with snakes is both amusing and very, very weird.....




In Livingstone, we visited Victoria Falls, took a drive through a game park, and enjoyed a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River. There were hippos, giraffe, rhinos, loads of monkeys, and antelope. Rough life, eh?

Carms! I love that you've started a blog. I'm in the process... but definitely inspired by you. Thanks for sharing your stories, thoughts and pictures. I'll look forward to more. I think of you so often here! I'm glad these creepies are behind bars and hope you don't encounter them in the wild!
