I just have to start off by saying I do think that mountain lions are in NY, The biggest reason I think this is my grandparents who live in Savona NY had shown me tracks up on their hill. Unfortunately I never was able to see the actual mountain lion myself but that’s most likely because I was not allowed to go up there even though it was only a few hundred feet from the house until a more recent date. The sole reason I do not believe it was a miss identification is that they both are from the southwest of NY and have seen them before. Like I said on the paper though eyewitness reports will only get you so far which is why I completely understand why there are those who believe they are not in NY anymore. Without and photos of the print or the actual cat itself there is no way to prove it was in fact there. It is easy for me to say I trust what my grandparents saw and what I was shown but it was at a younger age and I can no longer recall exactly what the print looked like, therefor I cannot say 100% without a doubt there are mountain lions in NY state, it is just what I believe. Even though I think they are in NY I do not believe it is a huge number which could be a reason there has been no documented sightings. Also a mountain lion tends to live in the mountains which is generally covered by trees making it almost impossible to see it from an aerial view. The only way to document one would be to go hiking or camping in the mountains of NY make sure you have a camera,…

2) The camel found a way to survive where he was abandoned and soon came across some other animals. A lion, a leopard, a fox, and a crow. The lion was intrigued as to why a camel was in the jungle and after the camel told his tale the lion took him in and told him, “You have nothing to fear now. Henceforth, you are under my protection and can stay with us.” (paragraph 4, line 5)
Then the lion got injured in a fight with an elephant and had to stay in his cave for a few day without hunting to gather…
while to figure out what I am going to do on in my
report. It was a lot of fun going to the Cloisters to see past century figures.

The performance in which I intend to write about is a musical named The Lion King which I went to see in London at the Lyceum theatre. The musical first debuted on July 8th 1997 at the Orpheum Theatre in Minnesota where it became an instant success and is still on-going. The story was constructed of the 1994 Disney animated film of the same name. The musical was directed by the talented Julie Taymor who also designed the costumes for the show.
"Astonishing," "spectacular," and "incredible!"…

Standing well at over thirty-two feet these columns became stations in pilgrimage routes to holy places. Over the years many of these columns have fallen but one that is still in its entirety is the Lion Capital from Sarnath. The Lion Capital is visually a reminder of the spiritual commitment, understanding of symbolism…
