Leopards

Leopards! Paul and Donna love them. Join us as we talk about these amazing big cats.

*Note, Paul and Donna discuss the appearance of a black panther in the Little House in the Big Woods, and thought this was probably a black cougar. After some research, though it appears that the cat in the book was either a jaguar (whose range was that far north at the time of the story), or, Grandpa Olsen made it up! We'll talk about that briefly next recording session. Cheers!
