Tiger Encounter!

This week we got to do something realy exciting. We went to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, subject of the Animal Planet special "The Little Zoo That Could" and had a tiger encounter. For a $75 fee (all of which goes to help feed and care for the tigers) C and I got to spend 30 minutes with a baby Bengal Tiger. It was so much fun! Our baby's name was Sheena. She was 10 pounds and I think 8 weeks old. Isn't she adorable?
Here she is with C.Doesn't it look like she's smiling?Playing: Bengal tigers live approximately 15-18 years and can consume up to 88 lbs of meat in one feeding. TaThere are less than 3000 Bengal Tigers in the wild. This zoo is on a mission to make sure they do not die out completely, even if they only ever live in captivity.
