An Adventure in Africa!

The grandfather of one of our new students came to share wonderful photographs that he had taken of animals in Africa. He told us about leopards who spend a lot of time in trees, nurturing their young and eating their prey. We talked about the difference between leopards and cheetahs, both of whom have spots but are different in other ways. Cheetahs--the fastest animal on earth--have paws like dogs and so cannot climb up into trees like the feline leopards. Our students were fascinated. Here you can see them raising their thumbs to ask (or answer) questions. And here is an extraordinary photograph taken by our guest showing a mother leopard and her cub up high in a tree.
