While I was walking through an African jungle, a poisonous snake nearly bit me.
When I was looking through my telescope a tiger came and ate up all my tuna sandwiches.
I crossed a river and accidentally stepped on a crocodile that looked like a log.
I found some sleeping bats hanging upside down from a branch. In Africa, you also find flying foxes.
When I wanted to photograph the bats, a panicked zebra suddenly appeared and knocked me down.
The poor zebra was hunted by a lion. I’m happy that the lion didn’t eat me.
Then I wanted to photograph some funny monkeys. They were very naughty and played with my equipment.
And then it happened. As I was trying to take the photo my flashlight exploded.
I was black all over. My camera, my hair, my beard and my clothes were burned. And the naughty monkeys laughed at me. That was the end of my photo safari. I had to go home to fix the camera.

The tiger doesn't live in Africa! All species of tigers live on the Asian continent.
By the way: Did you know that the largest cats on earth are tigers? The Siberian tiger can grow even bigger than a lion!
