Bakka...One Cool Cat

Bakka...One Cool Cat

I got to stare into the eyes of this handsome cheetah today, and I felt the stirring deep in my soul! Bakka, who has also been called Mr. Cool, is one of the stars of Backstage Pass at the San Diego Zoo. I was fortunate enough to get a look at him in the animal ambassador area. And as an extra bonus, I even heard the rumbling of his amazing purr! Now that’s cool!
