One of their favorite toys was a tennis shoe. I'm not sure how good of an idea it is to teach a tiger to attack something you wear. They claim that they never attack them when they are wearing them, but still don't think it's a very good practice. I think it would only take once for them to decide it wasn't a good idea.
Then we went saw some of the other animals, lions, patagonian cavey's, etc.
Then we come to the really exciting part.
We went to see the white tigers. There are a male and female, brother and sister. It was getting close to feeding time and I don't know if that was part of the issue. We got up there and the female was pacing back and forth by the fence.
The next thing we knew, he roared, launched himself out of the water and body slammed the fence at us with claws out and teeth gaping. We were soaked and scared silly. He stalked off. I guess he didn't want his butt soaking interrupted by gawping tourists. It was quite unnerving and I'm very glad the chain link held up!
We left and caught the tram back to the front of the park. We told the tram driver about it. He said, Oh McCabe? He is always a little testy. Well ok then. I must say it makes an interesting story.
