It is most definitely a disaster waiting to happen. I had the fortune of once getting to help raise a tiger cub that was rejected by its mother. There is no question that they are creatures of instinct. This cat never saw another tiger until it was over six months old, yet its favorite game was stalking. So long as you were facing it, it loved you. Turn your back and instinct took over, it went right for your neck. At 25 lbs, this was fun and cute, at 50 lbs, not so much. Today, she's 350 lbs, and I wouldn't dream of going into her pen.

PS There is no smell quite like the poo of a tiger cub that subsist off a cocktail of baby formula and Alpo.

"Disaster waiting to happen" is right! Old testament, real wrath-of-God type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies. Rivers and seas boiling. Forty years of darkness. Earthquakes, volcanoes. The dead rising from the grave. Human sacrifice ... mass hysteria.

Trans-specific love waiting to happen.

A full grown Orangutang has enormous strength, so I wouldn't necessarily place my bets on the Tigers. Fans of felines and monkeys ought to check out this video.

I dunno, yeah, those are tigers, but they're baby tigers.

At the moment, I bet if an orang got a good grip on one of them, they'd regret it.


I read about this in Life of Pi.

Soon these cute tiger cubs' growth will out pace that of their simian friends. Shortly thereafter, the tigers will learn that orangutan does in fact taste remarkably like the jungle equivalent of chicken.


This picture makes me laugh and I can't stop staring at it.It's really great.The man who has taken it must have a great sense of humour.

Pot should be, should not be decriminalized
