More tiger photos. They were very gentile and docile as long as we followed the rules.
One of the men on the cruise was really a jerk and thought it would be cute to "bark" at the tiger while he was petting it. They stopped him immediately and told him the tiger was getting agitated at that and would attack. If he did anything else stupid, he would have to leave.
The guy had a reputation on the ship for doing stupid things but to do something like that really took a big does of stupidity.
On of our friends also petting the tigers. They had to tell her to immediately start petting it more firmly or it would think she was tickling it and playing with it and the tigers would get confused and try to play when you are too gentle. These big cats will hurt you if they think you are playing with them.
