    Unbelieveable! When I lived in Kuwait lots of people smuggled tortoises home in matchboxes but this is a different ball game

    I can only imagine the cuteness of when the little leopards, panthers, black bear, and monkeys who are the size of puppies yawned. Aww!

    But I'm glad that he was caught and the animals can be released back in the wild or to a zoo if they aren't able to go back in the ~the mighty jungle~.
