cat dancer

cat dancer
 n.— «The “cat dancers” of the title are people who are willing to scale down the sheer wall of a mountain gorge to a panther’s den so to snap a shot of the cat’s face and hope to live to tell the story. Such a person is sometimes called a NAFOD—a person with “no apparent fear of death.”» —“Caught between law and a deadly justice” by Pat MacEnulty Charlotte Observer Nov. 28, 2005.
