I don't think I can fully express to anyone what it feels like to stroke a male lion.
I did voluntary work at London Zoo, helping out with the monkeys (my absolute dream job, it turns out!). I formed a bond with the tiny tamarin monkeys (now an endangered species, and the zoo are breeding them well). I was also feeding other types of monkeys, as well as gorillas. But the tamarins were my favourite – they were eating millworms from my hand by the end. :D
I miss my monkeys….
