At First, I Thought This Was The Most Insane Parenting EVER. But I Kept Looking And… Holy Cow.

What you’re about to see looks extremely dangerous. You might even think it’s terrible parenting, but Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degr√© is a 10 year old girl unlike any other you’ll ever see. She has an incredible bond with animals all around her because her parents raised her in Namibia. That means she didn’t have human classmates – she had lions, cheetahs, and other magnificent beasts. These pictures are stunning.

Consider me very jealous of Tippi. She’s actually 13 years old now since these photos were 3 years ago, but she has the same bond with animals from her earlier childhood. An amazing one.

Please share this beautiful story of Tippi with others.
