Today, this would be mostly a constructed occurence from a weird circus. But in the past, it has been geographically possible.

Cheetah on the roof

(Tuesday, September 16th, 2008)

The photo currently illustrating the top of this webs ite is worth describing. It comes from a special photo shoot event, in 2006, in Kenya. I was in the Masai Mara and while we were approaching a female chetah, she decided to use the height of our car to search around and lie down for a few minutes. It explains how I could shoot such an image from under her chin.

In Thailand, there is a small buddhist temple where a monk decided to help and save tigers. They became tame and live in the Wat Pa Luangta Bua Yannasampanno Monastery.

40 of the world’s most powerful big cats, 1 monk. Despite the impossible combination, it is really true and The Telegraph made a nice paper: The temple of the tame tigers. Nice photos. Beautiful animals.
