Transcript

  • 1. Prese nted by Brenda Music: African Symphony by Henry Mancini
  • 2. Riding a five-ton elephant, whom she called my brother, chilling with a cheetah or hugging a giant bullfrog as if it were a Teddy bear. The childhood of a French girl Tippi Degre sounds more like a newer version of Mowgli, rather than something real. A white child, she was born in Namibia to French wildlife photographer parents, and grew up in Africa . Tippi spent her whole childhood playing with wild animals including lion cubs, a mongoose, a snake, a cheetah, baby zebra, giraffes and crocodiles. The little girl saw nothing unusual about her company: I don't have friends here. Because I never see children. So the animals are my friends, she once said. Tippi is now 23 years old, and the only child to wildlife photographer parents Sylvie Robert and Alain Degre, who published her photos in a book called Tippi of Africa. It was magical to be able to be free in this nature with this child. She was a very lucky little girl she was born and raised until the age of 10 totally in the wild." said Sylvie.
