Tippi of Africa
Tippi Degré is famous in France, subject of books and documentaries. She grew up with African animals and was and is totally fearless with them.
Tippi and a snake. Tippi and bushmen.
Tippi documentary trailer. Even in her mid-teens, she is clearly still a tiny person.
I don't understand her French, but she seems very together.
Beautiful! Thanks for this post.
Check out these amazing photos of her!
Funny that it's only one letter difference from Pippi. Maybe you need an *ippi -name to be fearless and free.©ˆ :-)
1) Consider Tippi Hedren's role in Hitchcock's films, and that she now runs an animal rescue taking care, among others, the two tigers that used to belong to Maicol Geckson.
I can imagine many adults in the west thinking it's just horrible... not because they consider she is in danger from the animals, but because she is often dirty, and out of control, and out of supervision, untamed! not in school! Doesn't keep her elbows off the table!
I just can't believe she is crawling around on crocodiles, elephants, cheetahs... for somebody like me who is uncomfortable around a poodle, it's inspiring.
I haven't been able to find a DVD, but there is a highly rated book.
