    Hello! ALL , you folks are to be commended for your efforts! Sure, I know it’s your job, but what a job to have.
    Long ago, I rented a room in a house in which a Vietnamese family with young kids lived. Every Sunday night, they’d all be esonced on a double mattress watching Nature. When I the show was over, light went out. What a great way to end the weekend and start the Week!
    Hugh Miles did such an outstanding presentation w/ Puma: Lion of the Andes! He set a precedence, which, I can see is being carried into the future.
    Last night, I noticed in Lions of the Desert, that it is precisely due to the sacrifice of nature photographers (it’s their job — somebody’s go to do it!) of the revealed realities — that lion cubs are like teenagers anywhere and just clumsily playing all the time. Even the donkey-owning tribesmen must have identified w/ them, which, I suspect, is why the cubs made it. A contrast was drawn to showcase the mature parent which “knowingly” kept a low profile in the interests of survival. It is so easy for humans to draw parallels — it’s not anthropomorphic! We all knew dogs were THAT intelligent, and I am convinced that we’ll learn neat things about the rest, if we can find a way to keep as many around, as is humanly possible and that is what Prof Flip Stander is doing in Namibia!
    Thank-you!

    Sincerely,
    Tom Hardy
