David Mogo Godhunter
David Mogo Godhunter by Suyi Davies Okungbowa
In a post-apocalyptic world carpeted with sand dunes, the inhabitants of a remote settlement are warned by their Elders never to leave. The outside world is dangerous, say the Elders; those who venture into the dunes will be killed by whistling gods. But a girl named Nata yearns to see the wider world.
"Vivid, visceral and with a strength of the voice that just pulls me right in. The god-littered world of David Mogo's Lagos just won't let go." Jeannette Ng, author of Under the Pendulum Sun
"A riveting debut... this story is captivating." - Publishers Weekly
"A number of books have been termed 'godpunk,' but Suyi Davies Okungbowa's novel may be the subgenre's platonic deific ideal, from its title to its plot to its terse but vivid prose... Assured and arch, unsettling and thoroughly enjoyable-an auspicious debut from one of the most promising new voices in the growing coterie of African Sci-Fi/Fantasy writers." - WIRED
"A fantastic adventure of gods and mortals--highly recommended." Tasha Suri, author of Empire of Sand.
"A Nigerian Harry Dresden. Okungbowa's voice is great, and makes Lagos feel familiar." ~ Jacey Bedford, author of Winterwood --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Turns out giraffes are not unlike cows when they keep chewing when you try to take a pic lol. !DSC_7246
What's that over there?
One of Mogo Zoo's cheetahs got excited when the deer were getting fed and briefly gave me a look at its incredibly fluffy belly.
Mogo Zoo's rhino getting some snoot rubs from one of the keepers. While still a wild animal, it's heart melting to see such a gentle relationship between animal and keeper.
Mogo Zoo's ostriches were super strict on pecking order around the feeding troughs but put on a wonderful dance to decide who was boss.
Gorilla - Mogo Zoo
A Little Wattlebird
A 'Little Wattlebird' honeyeater stopped in a nearby tree while I was wandering around the zoo.
Five ton lawnmower
A rhino at Mogo Zoo wandering around its enclosure quietly mowing the lawn. It's incredible such a huge animal could be so gentle and relaxed.
Peace and quiet
One of the gorillas from Mogo Zoo chilling up the top of a very long branch at the top of their enclosure, well away from the troop.
Personal grooming is important
Two of Mogo Zoo's emperor tamarins grooming each other dilligently.
One of Mogo Zoo's meerkats patiently standing watch on the highest rock in their enclosure.
Up until this trip I had no idea otters could climb trees until this one did right in front of me. The otters at Mogo Zoo are adorable and always a treat to visit ♥
One of Mogo Zoo's giraffes loved to keep leaning into my photos and making faces. It goes to show they have a sense of humor too or simply love some attention.
One of Mogo Zoo's giraffes was good enough to stand still facing side-on right up against the closest part of their enclosure. I find the texture of their fur incredible, and it's amazing that it's able to keep a complex pattern like this.
One of Mogo Zoo's gorillas was chilling having lunch watching me take photos on my way around. I guess for the gorillas we're as much an attraction to them as they are to us.
One of the kangaroos at Mogo Zoo that I was lucky enough to be able to hand feed. The roos and deer at the park are incredibly gentle, even when taking food out of my hand.
This little bird at Mogo Zoo may or may not be the one which evaded my camera back in 2019. Regardless, this little bird was more than happy to hop around incredibly close to me and sing.
