YAY, their heads came up! :dance:

I'm pretty positive that it was Gina and her boys again.
Although seeing the 'youth' spots on Gina, it put me off for a moment.
But looking at her collar and the little scar above her left eye,
it can only be her.

Aarlam has a white tip on her tail and Josie's collar looks a bit worn at the top.
As there are only three females in Addo, it must be Gina. And the boys look very
much like boys. Her boys. :lol:

Very 8) 8) 8)
Summer 2014 - Oz! It was awesome!
