Me, the 10-year-old Zoologist

When I was 10, I wanted to be either a Zoologist or a Wildlife Photographer.

I was mad about animals. Oh, the amount of books I had. The amount of books I still have. I have always found that stuff fascinating. It isn’t where I am now, but hey, my journey is far from over.

I actually got close. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree, with a double major in Zoology and Conservation Ecology. So, I have the relevant qualifications for one part of my childhood dream.

These days I am studying Professional Writing and Editing. Hey, if I end up writing Zoological books, the 10-year-old me will love me forever.

At the moment though, the closest I get to my childhood dream is visiting the Zoo. Here’s a few recent pics…

Poor Tasmanian Devil. He looks a bit mopey today. Don’t you just want to give him a cuddle?

Two little squirrel monkeys playing together. Well, that’s decidedly cute!

Meerkat on watch. You can never be too careful.

Mr Gorilla is tired. Someone throw him a pillow.

In response to –Β Daily Prompt: When you were 10, what did you want to be when you grew up? What are you now? Are the two connected?
