|[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista|
|I took this Serval photo at a zoo near my house. To be honest, they were living in not-so-ideal conditions. Their cage was far too small for several cats to live in. The Serval in this photo kept walking along the fence without a rest for over 2 hours. After 2 hours I left the site so I don’t know whether he kept walking madly for the rest of the day or not. Personally, I don’t like zoos that much so usually I avoid visiting one. This zoo trip was a heartbreaking experience.|

Wow! My initial reaction to this photo was "Wow! I've never seen anything like that before!" More striking than a cheetah, this is a beautiful, crisp photograph. What a capture!
