Nicole and I took a leap of faith and visited the hand-reared tigers in Chiang Mai’s Tiger Kingdom the other day.
The zoo was adamant that they did not drug the animals, and backed up by a good reputation we decided to venture into the cages. Tigers are massive! Pure muscle ripples along their flanks as they walk and jump about.
We found the tigers to be fairly playful, although the ones in the following video were mostly sleepy in the afternoon sun.
