Think of the most beautiful, graceful, awe-inspiring animal you can imagine.
Now imagine that you have one of these animals in your care. You’re responsible for everything it needs, and it loves you and wants to please you. (If caring for an animal doesn’t attract you, imagine being responsible for a radiant, affectionate child.)
For me, the animal is a jaguar. Her name is Tulum, and I met her at the
zoo exotic animal rescue facility in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.
