In my opinion, the Queen of the Jungle should be the Thomson’s Gazelle

All animals have their unique feature, that distinct feature that sets them apart from the rest. For some it’s their speed, for others it’s their strength and for others, their size.

But for one animal in particular, that distinct feature is a cut above the rest. She is the equivalent of a miss world in the jungle.

No wonder all the carnivores prefer her meat to others – if only they could catch her. Another of natures tricks on the murderer to safeguard the innocent.

The animal we are talking about here is the female gazelle. Such a graceful, gentle and yet daring creature. None can be compared to the gazelle’s grace in the wild.

From her looks, to how she escapes her ultimate murderer; the cheetah, to how she does her spectacular leaps in the air when she’s excited. Just marvellous! So what is it about her that makes predators, especially the cheetah, so uncontrollably attracted to her?

I think the gazelle is the true queen of the jungle. Although I don’t think my hypothesis was a surprise to you at all. I think deep down you knew the truth too.

From our history classes, I think it’s safe to assume that we all have a particular definition of what a queen should look and behave like. If this is new to you, please consult Google before proceeding.

We all know that a queen is supposed to be beautiful, graceful, well groomed and very elegant. At least that’s what my history books tell me. Well if we compare the lioness to this definition, we get the complete opposite.

First of all, the lioness is muscular. What queen in history, have you ever read about that was muscular? This is all fine and dandy if you are the general of your army but a queen? I don’t think so.

I thought a queen is supposed to have an army of subjects fulfilling her every need but for the lioness this does seem to be the case.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not in any way challenging the lion’s kingship because we all know that guy is without a shadow of a doubt the king of the jungle. But the lioness, not at all!

But if you flip the page, and you compare the gazelle to the same definition, you get an exact match. Like this definition was created for this exact creature. The gazelle is beautiful, graceful, well groomed and above all very elegant.

And despite her exploits in the wild, she does not have muscles. What a queen-like physic she has, wouldn’t you agree or do you share the same ignorance as my challengers? It’s good we are on the same page.

If you are not totally convinced and some ignorance is still showing, let me help you see the truth clearly. Remember this story?

The intimidating beast had just finished devouring the mother, and had the wounds to show for it, when its terrified child emerged. Instead of making the defenceless infant her dessert, however, the creature took pity on it and carried it away to safety.

The lioness first stares at the gazelle calf in shock, before roaring angrily at it to make it go away. Finally, her maternal instincts take over, and after batting the quivering calf with a paw, she picks up the orphaned baby and carries it off like one of her own cubs.

And they say my hypothesis is absurd. This is evidence enough that the gazelle is the queen of the jungle. Here we see a baby gazelle who, has just come across one of her subjects; the lioness commit a terrible crime.

Murder! And in her wisdom, seeing that the lioness would get away with it, commands her to take her to the palace for punishment.

We see in the complete story, that the lioness tries to resist the order but the gazelle is insistent. What happens after is what proves my theory that the gazelle is the true queen of the jungle.

The lioness actually obeys the gazelle. Yes, allow that last bit of ignorance to shamefully disappear. We don’t know what exactly happens when they get to the palace, but what we do know is queens don’t obey subjects.

Subjects obey queens. So there you have it ladies and gentle men, proof, that the gazelle is the true queen of the jungle. Let me know what you think. Post your comments below.
