...Cause this is Africa.

So, where were we.

We left with Abasi talking about a "darn cat". Well, turns out the cat he was talking about was indeed Africa. Looks like she got herself a bad reputation after three years.

She hasn't changed much physically (except for a little detail ;) Let's see if you spot which one!), but she did change psychologically, as you can guess from her grumpy face.

But anyway, about this page.

Sorry if the monkey looks weird. I've never been a fan of monkeys since Planet of the Apes. That movie used to scare the living organic waste out of me as a kid. Now it's one of my favourites, but the costumes still scare me a little :P

Anyway, the monkey starts shouting as soon as she sees Africa, and soon after, all the animals in the trees join in a choir, warning off one another from the threat.
In the wild, leopards rely on stealth to hunt. When they are spotted and kept an eye on, they don't attack. That's why animals who live in colonies, like monkeys, tend to shout and make a lot of noise when they see a leopard. It has a double effect: it warns off the rest of the colony from the threat and it's a way to tell the predator: "We know you're here. Don't even try to attack, because you're going to fail".

Other animals like squirrels and birds take advantage from monkeys' calls and are alert when they hear them shouting.
That's a vervet monkey by the way. The same type of monkey Africa used to hunt as a youngster.

Last panel took ages. Period. I don't think I've ever drawn so many trees together in like forever. D8

Also, as you might have read from the text up there, I'm not exactly sure when next page is coming out. My family and I should be leaving on holiday from September 15th to like October 1st, but nothing is organized yet, I'll let you know when next page will be out though, hopefully soon :)

Anyway, enjoy!
