‘What big teeth I have’

Hi Fern, signing in – by the way the title is not referring to my teeth but to Nao’s! Just received a slap from her – not hers either but the teeth of a beautiful leopard.

Dad sent an email with photo’s of a leopard that they had sedated, put a collar on and measured, including his teeth – wouldn’t like to be his lunch!!

Everything is going fine at school, working hard as usual. Nao has a bad cold and is extremely grumpy so after this blog I’m going to take a walk in the lovely sunshine and let her suffer on her own. Hopefully she’ll be asleep when I get back.

More news from dad – everything is going well at the Reserve. He said that a group of Australian tourists have arrived and a group of Americans left today, so he’s busy, busy! Mom was involved with the capture of the leopard and a friend of hers called Bronwyn –

she is the pretty blonde lady! Dad said Philemon is busy and that the fishing is going well. Mama Joyce is keeping everyone behaving with her weapon of choice, her rolling pin! To all of you that don’t know Mama, she is amazing but oh boy, what a temper! She however, only brandishes her weapon furiously above her head as she chases the offending culprit but has, as yet, to use it!

Anyway, back to the leopard. As you will see from the photo’s, he is beautiful and healthy. He has been extremely elusive and it was by chance that Moses, our bushman tracker, spotted him the other day. Everyone got moving quickly and were able to dart him, measure and record all details etc. without any incident.

Enjoy the photo’s, until next time, Fern signing out!

I am an author of Y/A books. My latest 'Dear George' is about a seventeen girl with high morals that finds out she has cancer just before her prom. She compromises her values and after her first chemo and almost losing her life to a femoral bleed, she finds out she is pregnant - what will she choose? Her life or the baby's?
