Tippi of Africa
She’s riding a freakin’ ostrich! :O
. Ever seen a real life wild child little girl who rides elephants, sleeps with lions, plays with snakes, rides ostrich and hugs frogs? Meet Tippi Degre, a French white girl who grew up and was raised amongst the native black Africans and became part of their culture (at least, this is what I can assume from the webposting. I have not looked at the book yet).
She was born into a world that lives amongst wild animals as if they were domesticated. And as such, she learned how to play and interact with them on a level regular humans can never realize. The photos of her are stunning, and she claims that she can speak to animals and hear them, and that they understand her. It is known that animals have a language all their own, and the Bible says they will bow to Christ and know who He is. I find that a fascinating fact. Some quotes of her, a little girl in most of these pictures but now 23-years-old (you can see a few adult photos of her too), quotes her saying things like, “I don’t have friends here. Because I never see children. So the animals are my friends.”
Enjoy the photos and definitely check out her book. I definitely will.
