Photos-The Wild Things
These animals shown are NOT pets! They are infant wild animals, orphaned by the bushmeat and illegal pet trade in Africa. They are being raised in their own environment to simulate their natural habitat as closely as possible, with the hopes that someday they will be free to live as their species were meant to live.
