It’s too early for TOTY isn’t it?

While i think i may regret stating the obvious, why have you started a thread with that non sentence? What's the significance? Where's the fcuking verb?

Sorry BD, there's a new nature reserve in southern Mongolia with a healthy population of snow leopards.

I think would make for an amazing trip.

My wife and I went to Taronga zoo some time in the 80s. The zoo had just acquired a huge Sumatran tiger so we wandered on down and asked where it was, an attendant said it was in temporary accommodation and headeded us in the right direction.

We stopped outside its cage behind a railing and peered in. We couldn't see any sign of it. The cage was about 20' wide and 35' long, at the far end there was a doorway about 5' wide, opening into a dark enclosed space, presumably the width of the walled cage.

Our viewing was through a 4' x 8' rectangle in the wall; waist high, it had iron bars about 1/2" diameter spaces 6" apart, all a bit loose in their sockets, and some rickety iron mesh badly attached.

So we are staring in and there's nothing. Just to the right is a platform at about chest height, 10' by 4'; maybe the tiger is there and because of our viewing angle it may be in the corner where we can't see it. So I duck under the bar that keeps us from the wall of the cage and peer round at the platform, I have my face within an inch of the bars, I've blocked my wife's view so she ducks under and is beside me looking.

Suddenly there's a slight blur in my peripheral vision, I glance down the cage, there's a 12' Sumatran tiger in full explosive action leaping from the doorway at the end of the cage, two fcuking bounds and a second later it crashes full tilt into the bars and mesh, 1' from my face, the bars move in their sockets and it nearly touches my face, my wife screams. I'm left with an image forever frozen in my mind of a tiger closing in for the kill, probably one of the few people who have lived after seeing it.

There was still no-one around and we wandered off a bit in shock.

Great story, Cranky.
We went to the big amusement park in Hong Kong and came upon the Panda Enclosure they had. Great Amusement Park. Great Aquarium and Arctic Environment Section as well.
Anyway we are looking at the back of this big sleeping panda on a grassy hill in the enclosure when it wakes up and saunters over to a big cleft rock in the middle of the viewing area. Everyone is stoked to see the panda. The panda positions itself on top of the rock, turns around and drops a turd the size of a football down the side of the rock. Turns around again and saunters back to where it was and goes back to sleep. Everyone cracked up.

My father went to Mongolia a few years ago. Keen photog, so he just went. Awesome photos and sounds like an epic place.

If Steve had of been a stand up guy about winning and not slinked off like a filthy fccckn coward he could have earned himself a trip.
