Among The Butterflies
Had a visit with Butterfly World recently in Klapmuts, the Western Cape. The animal residents were really friendly with quirks straight out of stories, like this little Gandalf-in-training.
"You Shall Not Pass!"
Several Yertle the Turtles were also spotted climbing on top of one another, and the tamarin (a pet in another life) guarded the door and refused to let us leave. Of all the animals, though, my favorite was probably this slightly intimidating Guinea pig, who may or may not be running a mob from the back of this tortoise.
I wonder if he likes cannoli...
