Presented by Marlin Perkins and his co-host Jim Fowler, MOOWK episodes took place in every region of the globe and educated TV viewers about the wildlife and people of every country imaginable, and dozens I'd never heard of.
Today's post is segment three of Future Expeditions. First, wild horses running on a beach, then USA waterfalls and now ...Africa.
Marlin Perkins, zoologist and ecologist, was born in Carthage, Missouri, about thirty minutes from where I live. I have no idea where the chimpanzee, W.K., was born.
"Watch out, Jim,"
in a calm, Not-To-Worry- I've-got-your-covered-just- clipping-my-nails tone of voice, as poor Jim wrestled a 25 foot python. And another favorite of mine,
"I'll step back while Jim sticks his head into the wild cobra's nest."

White Rhinoceros - a vanishing species. Don't you think this picture needs a heading?
I wanted to go on a SAFARI, the non-hunting variety.
And still do.
The short video below is actually a commercial for a private game reserve and resort in Kruger Park South Africa. It'll give you a glimpse of animal life that could be seen there.
I still do.
