  2. 2. ‘Snuffle, snort’, which is ‘hello there’ in Herbie speak. But I will switch to English now. I love living here at Daktari. The best time is walk time, when I go out with people and the dogs. And food time is not bad either! I am Willie, the scrub hare, but the small children call me abunny. I keep busy patrolling theenclosure, which I share with the tortoises. They are very slow & lazy, so it is my job to look extra busy to make up for them.

Scotty is back at Daktari  I can see you are looking at me and I don’t blame you. As you know I’m Storm the Spotted Eagle Owl and I’m just awesome! I arrived recently at Daktari, because I fell out of the nest. When I’m strong enough, which I’m sure I will be, I will go back to the wild!
