A Trip to the Zoo
I went to the zoo today with the family. They roamed around, I did some sketching. I went to the lions and had a fun time sketching the big male at the zoo. He roared, growled, ate his meaty breakfast, fun for all. Then he took a nap.
Excitement pretty much over in that cage, I decided to head over to the flamingo pond. As I walked over there, I met the gaze of the female lion in the next pen over.
She looked at me, deeply.
There was no rage or hate in those eyes, just knowledge. In that instant, I learned a lesson.
We both knew that in a second, I would be dead. Maybe two.
Cats, after all, do like to play with their prey before killing.
