Surprise

Africa is famous for wildlife so it's no surprise that most of these surprise stories involve dangerous animals. Camping in Uganda is Gene Child's account of encountering elephants in Murchison Falls that were agile enough to negotiate moving between closely pitched tents without disturbing the crisscrossed ropes that anchored them. What was the curious draw that called up that display of skill? And why does Brooks Goddard's story of a school trip to Kenya's Aberdare National Park have the provocative title The Head of a Leopard and what does that trip have to do with the establishment of the Wildlife Clubs of Kenya? It is clear what creatures menaced Ron Stockton in Giant Jungle Ants and Moses Howard in the Place of the Lions, but what was it that Jerry Schieber encountered in A Lunchtime Experience?

One story here is not about animals, but vegetables, and this time it is not the foreigners but the neighborhood Africans who get surprised, by Moses Howard, as this TEEAer Becomes an African Farmer
