Like a Monkey in a Cage (Kokology #34)
They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, and that is true of animal as well as man. When you look into the eyes of a friendly dog, it seems to be begging you to play, while if you stare into the eyes of a cat, it looks back with cool indifference. Animals have feelings and personalities just like humans, and if we would only heed our eyes, we’d see how close our worlds really are.
You are strolling through a zoo, watching the animals in their cages. You stop in front of a single monkey in its cage and your eyes meet. The expression is its eyes seems to be communicating something. What is the monkey trying to tell you?
Untamed (Kokology #18)
When you see a tiger or leopard at the zoo, you can’t help feeling it looks a little tame, as though something in its wild nature has been lost. Even huge creatures like elephants or grizzly bears seem diminished when they’re locked up in a cage.
That may be the reason safari parks have become so popular. The impact of seeing wild animals is so much greater when you can watch them in their natural state, and the thrill is that much more when only a thin car window stands between you and a hungry lion.
You are on a safari park tour, following the road through the open savanna. A short distance from the trail, you see a lion and lioness feeding, hungrily tearing at and devouring hunks of raw meat. What are you thinking as you watch this scene of untamed savagery?
