Working with dangerous wildlife

'Wildlife' refers to animals that live in the wild. The opposite of 'wild' is 'tame'. A tame animal is an animal that can live peacefully with humans and which can be safely approached by people. So, pets are tame animals. A elephant that works with humans in the jungle is a tame elephant.


Wild animals are those that are not tame. They can not safely approached by humans. Very few people work with wild animals.
