Hey Quiz, welcome to the forums! Where's this rescue you volunteer at? It sounds like it must be a pretty interesting job!

Welcome to the forums! I envy your proximity to a big cat rescue. =-) Is your avi a pic from the rescue?

Thanks to both of you! I volunteer at a place in San Diego: below is the url for their site. My avvie is a picture of our two lionesses, Jillian and Suri, and I took it during a feeding (it's shot through a chain link fence). It is an interesting "job"; I heard about them through my cousin and have been volunteering there for about two years now. Oh, the stories I have. :)

Your picture reminds me of a place near home that isn't exactly a rescue, but it's a very personal zoo. They interact a TON with the animals, and feeding time is pretty damn interesting to see. (I didn't know tigers could jump so damn high!) Congrats on doing such cool work!

Thanks! Feeding time here is a blast to see, too (tomorrow will be especially, since we're giving the cats whole turkeys to eat and play with), especially when guests get to feed Conga, our leopard. It's so breathtaking to see her leap up and hold on to the fence with all fours!

Heh, I bet! I personally like seeing big cats eat the most, but the hyenas are a close second.

I now have the urge to watch The Lion King and laugh like Ed.

I find hyenas to be rather fascinating, myself.

Hyenas are cool! They are very interesting in many ways, like their whole dominance thing. There's an alpha female, yet it's still based on whose penis (this is a biological word...if it bothers you I can shrink it) is bigger! :D

Introductions are in order then.

How you doing; I'm AnonCollie.
Just expect me to lurk for a little while I get my bearings, especially where the RP section is concerned. My avatar gives good directions, by the way. :)

Um... *waves, clearly shy* Hi. I've been reading for about nine months now, and I thought it was time that I come here.
