IMAGINE walking along a jungle path in the twilight and hearing a lion roar. Your skin turns clammy, a knot forms in your stomach and you can taste the fear rising in your throat.
Now imagine walking along a zoo path at the same time of the eveningand hearing the same sound. This time you do not feel afraid.
