I enjoyed seeing the article about Proctor and Matthews at Whipsnade (AJ 01.09.05) just days after the stunt at London Zoo, where examples of homo sapiens were placed in a cage.

Although the inhabitants of the enclosure at Whipsnade are more decorously clad, in English summer leisure wear rather than fig leaves, they also appear to be very much on display, although this time to the animals rather than to other members of their own species.

Indeed, the lioness in the drawing on the top of page 35 looks not only curious but possibly hungry. The conceit is charming but I wonder where it may lead next - horses seated in a stadium watching people gallop round a track perhaps?

Now there's an idea for the Olympics.
