Today is World Animal Day and my bento buddies are at it again. In celebration we are having another big bento blog hop, with each lunch celebrating a different animal. So, click the button at the end of this post to check out all the wildlife (and some cute animals too!)

I selected a cheetah because I did one pre-blog last year and I’ve been itching to do another. Cora insisted that the cheetah will be lonely without a lion and a tiger to keep her company, so it evolved into a big cat lunch.

Our cheetah is a cheese sandwich with cheese and fruit leather features. I held the eyes, nose and ears on with strands of raw spaghetti. She is hanging out in a pile of cheese curls (it aint easy bein’ cheesy!)

The cheetah has a lion friend made from a hard-boiled egg with cheese, soy paper and fruit leather features.

Our watermelon tiger cubs are romping in a pile of blackberries. Yum!

To make this lunch I used:

Japanese Bento Accessories Ham Cheese Cookie Cutter Set of 6

Next up on our zoo tour is an adorable octopus by the one and only JeeJee (of AllThingsForSale and CuteZCute fame). Don’t miss it – she’s a real bento pro!
