Karula is an awesome Mama, she is about 11-12 years old and until 2015 New Year she had no lost a single cub! For those who don’t follow the #safarilive team, Karula has a cub about a year ago and it was all very exciting. Unfortunately about 10 others safari cars wanted to see the little cub as well. With so much noise with all the cars and the people (who SHOULD have been silent, mainly children screaming … What the hell parents?!) the little cub was naturally curious, came out and was killed by Hyena.
It was devastating, you could tell Karula was in shock herself, she had never lost a cub before! Any-ways because of the situation there were strict rules placed upon the car and the guides. There are not allowed to be more than three cars at any sighting. With the birth of these new precious cubs and the disaster that happened last year, NO ONE is allowed near Karula or the cubs for at least the next two weeks and I think that is fantastic!
Today I was a little shocked to come onto the Ostrich Egg cam live and to see that there was no more little Gunga! Luckily after about a minute of investigation I could stop panicking because little Gunga had not passed away suddenly. Which was so relieving to me, because Gunga was so fiesty!
What had happened was Daddy Dash and kind Rancher Joel decided to break the other egg shells and were sad to discover that the other eggs had not developed properly. So they were not going to grow any further. So what they have decided to do was to take Gunga out and let him/her run free with a kind Rancher Joel other baby Ostriches. Baby ostriches thrive much better when they have other ostriches to run around with.
Of course this all happened while I was asleep.
SO at the moment it’s just some last chatting before the chat comes off and probably waiting a whole another year for the next lot =D
Day 15 – 17: Family – Well I spent this time with my Family at our reunion and I get along well with my family. Couldn’t be more grateful for a family like mine.
Day 18: Walking – This one probably seems like a bit out of the blue =D Well at the family reunion we took a walk on a Summit and it was 4km all round…and extremely steep. Meaning when we woke up the next morning, none of could walk…I am not even kidding! As I walked up and down the stairs I started to realise what my life might be like at 80. For the first time in, even in the last couple of days, my life I have been eating so well and now I am saving up to go and get my health checked up.
Day 19: The Past – I have had a really nice day with two of my ex’s. The first was just being silly with one who I’ve been been friends with for a while now, he was my serious relationship. Which is nice, it’s nice to have someone who knows me as well as he does in my life. Knows all my darkness, but still hangs around me and thinks that I’m still pretty “neat”…BUT the best part of today was my last ex and I have been talking since my family reunion. We have decided that we will try to be friends, but we are going to wait until the New Year. I am SO happy, I never wanted it to end as ugly as it did. He’s so special to me and such a unique individual, I can’t describe how glad I am.
Day 20: The World Wide Web – Today I got to experience something amazing…a once in a life time experience. Thanks to the amazing wonder that is the Internet I got to see not one…but TWO baby Wilder Beast being born, live…Sure it wasn’t the same thing as seeing it in the “flesh”, but even probably 5 years ago I wouldn’t have been able to see it at all!
If you want to experience amazing live web feeds too, this is one that you should definitely watch! WildEarth Safari’s
Day 21: My “real” friends” – So today I told a bunch of people that I was tired of being treated like a second class friend and I do not like the way I’ve been treated. It amazed me how many people came out in support of ME! =D I had finally had enough and had the final insult today. I told them enough is enough. I have done nothing wrong to them and have continually be treated badly for not a single good reason, sure I don’t rub their ego’s, but that is not reason to treat someone badly…You earn respect, you don’t just ‘get it’.
The little scar on the bottom of my right foot,
A constant reminder on how I entered this world,
A scratch across my foot when I was not even a day old,
I suffocated on the way in too, a tiny little life already having to fight to be in this world.
That little scar on the bottom of my right foot,
A trusting little foot holding out to the doctor, with that big needle, much bigger than my little foot.
One little movement and that trust that I had in that doctor, all gone,
I am suppose to be there, I might have to fight the rest of my life, but here I am.
That little scar on the bottom of my right foot,
How can one deny that there not suppose to be,
I am supposed to be and I will fight to be here,
But why am I suppose to be here? Why and what for?
That little scar on the bottom of my right foot, a constant reminder that I AM supposed to be here.
