Beautiful tigers Sep 26, 2008
This zoo dates back from 1892 and is set in pretty gardens. We were most impressed by the tigers. Of course we had seen tigers before, but never like this. There are four tigers (two of them are white) and each of them is allowed to roam the large ground for a couple of hours a day.
From the caretakers at the smaller area where you can see the other tigers, we understand that it’s not a wise idea to let the tigers out at the same time. They would fight, probably till death.
The tiger that is out in the larger habitat while we are there is fully relaxed, strolling, licking his paws, yawning. It’s the first time we can watch a tiger from this close, without a iron fence blocking our view and we are mesmerized. It’s probably not as safe as in European zoo’s, if you would piss off the tiger I can imagine he could jump over the moat or take a swim, but it’s well worth it.
We enjoy watching the other animals, there are birds here we have never seen before, and it’s reasonably quiet in the zoo. There are only a few people who take pictures from us and ask us to take pictures from them…
