144--Zimbabwe: Feeding Baby Lions
@ Where`s Cherie?     Aug 20 2003 - 01:49 PST
cherie writes: Kristi, Renee and I headed for Zimbabwe to the Chapangali Wild Animal Orphange where we kissed the rare and elusive Black Rhino. (Note both Black and White Rhinos are both gray.) We also cuddled baby lion cubs and fed them bottles. The ladies even frolicked with servals and baby zebras! Will, our tour guide, preferred to play with a big hairy spider (instead of the other baby animals.) If a spider makes a sound when you squish it, it is too big. If the spider pushes you off, you are probably in Africa.
