If you thought your childhood was great, then just wait until you see what Tippi Degre's was like. Raised in Africa as the child of two French photographers, Degre spent most her youth doing the things that we all pretended to do in our backyards. Whether she was playing with crocodiles, hanging on elephant trunks or hunting with Namibian tribes, it's safe to say that Tippi has us all beat when it comes to young life experiences. Taken from the book Tippi of Africa, Bored Panda assembled some photos of her childhood for us all to "ooh" and "aah" at. Looks cooler than playing with action figures, doesn't it?
