Yup. Tigers. This was a baby.
There were three large adults in the other cage. They were quite listless.
This are not a zoomed pictures. I was actually that close.
I was impressed at how enormous these animals are close up like that. Their paws were as big as dinner plates. Well, almost. I wouldn't want to be slapped by one!
Look at how beautiful their fur and coloration is close up. I was fascinated.
I was appalled by the number of people sticking fingers and, in the case of small children, hands through the cage to touch them. I don't know if these animals were sedated or just bored and used to it, but they did not react in any way.
But they could have and I think the parents were just plain stupid to allow their kids to stick their hands in these cages. I'm glad I did not have to witness a child's hand being torn or bitten off.
