Tiger's Eye

I can't believe how BIG these cats
really are! When you see them
on t.v., their true size is
not realized!
Upon looking in one of my friends
books she had gotten from a
performance show she had gone
to, I couldn't believe they are
much longer than a man is tall!
It will truly be great in That Day
when the lion shall lie down with
the lamb. I'm sure that will
also include the tigers as well!

Toucan Better Than One!

I think toucans are so pretty!
I've always wondered how they
can carry around such heavy
beaks!! They must have a very
strong neck!

What is Brown and Has the Longest Neck!

Giraffes are a magnificent wonder!
Can you imagine the size of
their hearts; to have to pump
blood up those long necks!
God's animal kingdom is
truly amazing. How much
more so is His Kingdom
for us. I'm sure His beautiful
animals will be there too!

One Powerful Bird!

I have seen many eagles here
in Florida. When in the keys
they would nest in the islands
round about that people could
get to by boat. The mangroves
were so over grown you couldn't
get back to where their nests were.
I have seen them here as well in
nests that have been abandon by
some of the fish hawks. It's
amazing to watch them
feed their young from the
lakes that surround our area!
It's so grand to watch them as
they soar above the area on
hot air pockets. They all of
a sudden will hit one and
it pushes them up like a
sling shot!

How can you tell the difference
between a cheetah and a leopard?
Leopards have the shape of a lion.
Cheetahs have the shape of a
sleek house cat. It also has
longer back legs than other
large cats, giving them the
speed they can run; 70 miles
an hour in short spurts, wow!

October seems to be the month
for owls. I not only hear them
in the woods, especially the
screech owls, but they seem
to be popular for the fall
season in art.

A Big Animal With a Big Heart for Their Young!

I have always loved to watch
National Geographic stories
about the African elephants
(You know the ones with the
bigger ears. Elephants from
India have the smaller ears.)
I love to see the babies learning
to roll in the mud. They get
so bogged down sometimes,
they have to have help to get
out! Mom's always there
for them; just like our moms
are always there for us!
I really appreciate all you
moms and what you do for
your children and grand-

Now Tell Me You're a Gator Fan

I have seen plenty of these! It was but
a few years ago when a baby gator
was going across my yard! When
I approached him, he started
making that grunting noise
and I looked to see if mama
was coming! Even though
my yard is fenced in,
gators have been known
to go over fences!!!
