      Unfortunatly I have not. I was set to go to Kenya as part of our depatments Ecology Trip to Kenya a couple of weeks ago but unfortunatly could’nt go. There it is common to come across lions and leopards and I would haved loved to see them. However the big cats I want to see the most in the wild are cheetah’s and snow leopards as both of these are just amazing hunters at the very edge of what evolotionary design can acheive! I hope to go next year to hopefull at least see the cheetah!
