                Horrible to see how these animals are used for entertainment purposes in talkshows. It's 2019...... Nothing funny about this .How is this still happening?

                    LOL. "Part of my job is helping people to realize that wildlife are wild and need to be kept as such" Is that why your entire career surrounds keeping them in captivity, Rick? *eye roll*

                                    Well, I love your show but i believe those animals souldn't be here. Let's them be and live peacefully in their own environnement. This could be really stressfull for them. Even if they are fascinating, they are not your toys. Their place isn't on a tv show.

                                                    I was hoping they'd bring Messi the puma! He's a sweetie pie.

                                                      @GiantofIron what a coincidence!haha You can turn English subtitles on. There's a tab on the top right(on mobile) that you can open and turn closed captioning on. Doesn't get all the translations right but it's enough to give you an idea of what they're talking about.

                                                      @Brandon Deel haha yeah, that was the video I was watching right before. Yeah I agree, they definitely take great care of Messi and he is so much like a house cat. Fun videos, just wish they had more English subtitles.

                                                      @GiantofIron eh, their colors are a bit different. Messi is awesome! I don't think anyone could handle him as well as his owner does. It really is amazing how much Messi acts like a typical house cat. They'd be feeding him shrimp on the show instead of raw meat chunks:) that's his favorite. If you haven't seen any of the videos where they feed him shrimp, you should. Its too cute. You can tell his owners care a lot for him.
