“Man is rated the highest animal, at least among all animals who returned the questionnaire.” ~Robert Brault

100_7999 Amazing video of walking vine woman. DiVine, a plant woman encompassing sixteen feet of living vine, begins her mysterious shows quietly, wrapping herself around a tree or appearing as an inanimate collection of vines on a wall. Slowly, she uncoils her long grapevine branches and moves just a bit before planting herself in a new statuesque position.

100_7951 Thanks for stopping by. We hope you enjoyed The Animal Kingdom with us.

“If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth.” ~Chief Seattle of the Suquamish Tribe, letter to President Franklin Pierce

Your post brings back memories of when Bob and I went to Animal Kingdom, more than 10 years ago I believe.
