🌻💫☀ @natgeo 🌹💞🍀 Photo by @FransLanting 💖 ✨✨✨ Here’s a famous female leopard named Half-Tail, grooming her cub named Zawadi. Half-Tail was one of the first leopards in Kenya’s Maasai Mara to tolerate people, and she became known as an individual with her own life story. She became a star when she was featured in the “Big Cat Diary” TV series. Thanks to Half-Tail, millions of people got a better sense of what it’s like to be a leopard. She got her name because she lost part of her tail in a baboon attack. Half-Tail raised her cub, Zawadi—also known as “Shadow”—in public, and that in turn helped Zawadi herself to be more accepting of people. In this image, Zawadi is only a few months old. Follow me @FransLanting to see what Zawadi looked like when I saw her again 15 years later! I post this image in celebration of World Wildlife Day, March 3, 2017. This is a moment to recognize that every wild animal has its own life and that every one of them deserves our respect. @natgeotravel @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #Leopard #WorldWildlifeDay #CauseAnUproar #Panthera #Dignity #Respect #Motherhood🌛 . . . . #AstroMouda 🌠 #Nothing_But_The_Best 🌇☀🍀
