Growing up with animals is something children do every single day around the world, but not many kids have the claim to fame that Tippi Degre does, writes ilovemydogsomuch
As a child, she grew up with wild animals as her friends. Forget about dogs and cats, Degre spent her days with animals such as leopards and elephants.
Degre is now a French actress and grew up as the daughter of nature photographers stationed in Namibia on the African savannah. Degre is called ‘real-life Mowgli’ and when you see the photos of her childhood, you will understand why.
Since the child’s parents were often out working, the little girl made fast friends with the amazing wild animals. She was able to get up close and personal with them.
“She was a very lucky little girl – she was born and raised until the age of ten totally in the wild,” Tippi’s mother, Sylvie, told The Telegraph. It was just the three of us living in the wild with the animals and not too many humans.”
The child’s safety was first and foremost. Sylvie Degre also shared that Tippi wants to become an ambassador for Namibia. Imagine what an incredible childhood she had. The memories are preserved forever in photos, and the Internet can’t get enough.
