The Panthers of Madagascar

The Panthers of Madagascar

Panthers in Madagascar?? Yes indeed, though perhaps not quite what you were expecting! Check out our latest post and learn all about these awesome reptiles!

When I landed in Nosy Be, an island off the coast of north-western Madagascar, after over a day spent in transit, I could not wait to dive in and get started. Although I was apprehensive about being in a totally different environment to what I was used to, I wanted to be in the forest, finding animals as quickly as possible! Luckily for me, it wasn't long at all until I got my first look at some of the wildlife of Madagascar.  

How My Life Got Wild

How My Life Got Wild

As a child, I wanted to be many things. A sportsman, a zookeeper, a wizard, a jedi. Apart from my father however, I only ever wanted to be one person; I wanted to be Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter. From as early as I can remember, and probably earlier still if you ask my parents, I could spend hours at a time sitting down watching Steve leaping out of boats onto crocodiles, and rushing after and picking up venomous snakes. Perhaps most importantly though, I was absorbing his passion for any, and all animals.
