Wizard World Austin Wrap Up Part 3

I bet you thought I was never going to write this, didn’t you? Well surprise! I did!

This is represented so well with all the different tribes of animals doing their own thing, surviving and living, until they are forced to deal with Kaa.

The smaller animals...
