I am a retired teacher. Since then I have had the time to explore interests. I love learning about lions, leopards, and all the big cats. I can't seem to get enough. Whenever I have the time, I'm back into the big cat world! I have had to go back and learn about the lineage of certain prides and coalitions. The first stories that captured my interest were that of the leopard Karula and all her cubs. I'm thoroughly hooked!
