Play time with Tyson

Here's a short video of Tyson playing.

He's gotten very brave and curious now. He still hisses when a new person enters his enclosure, but I believe that's his prerogative since it's his territory. He's gotten tame enough, though, that volunteers have started taking sleeping bags and spending the night with him. So far he doesn't sleep WITH them, but soon he will grow used to them and he'll be happy to cuddle up.

I leave a week from today. You can't imagine how much I'll miss him.


  1. We went to the Audubon Zoo today and I could have stayed in front of the leopard enclosure all day. Beautiful creatures, that they are. Enjoy your last week; soak it all up!

  2. Just caught up!! So wonderful....Enjoy your time. Merry Christmas.

  3. I've been re-reading your book while you are gone - fun to imagine where you are on the grounds when you post pictures. Milo sunning in the den at my side.

  4. Thank you for sharing your trip with us so we could live vicariously. I still miss Namibia and Harnas everyday.
