3. The water hole must attract big cats.
They need to drink also.

4. I did see a lion the other night.

15. Those giraffes are so cool. It's like they know the camera is there.
Sometimes they pause and look directly at it.

24. "Hey, Mrs. Giraffe," said Mr. Giraffe. "Look at those funny two-legged
creatures! Let's watch 'em for awhile. They're kinda funny looking, don't you think?"
