To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child , a garden patch, or a redeemed condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

American Black Bear

Our next tryst at the Munda Wanga zoo & botanical gardens at Lusaka, Zambia was with an "American Black Bear". The bear looked intimidating, but lazy. It just sat around and shook its head from time to time. It looked menacing, so we were lucky that there was a moat (though dry) between the fence and where the fellow was sitting. Posted by Picasa
