I wake in the Peruvian rainforest.
I’m black and yellow.
I run as fast as the wind blows.
My footprints are as deep as ice.
I’m waiting for my lunch.
Perhaps it will be a little deer today.
I wonder what’s ahead?
No one knows there’s a mighty jaguar in this forest.
I leap across the river.
I make a wish that no hunters will steal me or my friends.
