If swimming with dolphins is not exciting enough for you, how about a tiger cub? A private zoo in Dade City, Fla., is now giving patrons the chance to swim with a Siberian tiger cub.
While it might sound dangerous, it’s a roaring success with customers from as far away as Iceland lining up and paying $200 for just 30 minutes to cuddle, bottle feed and swim with Tony the tiger – a 6-week old cub.
“It’s kind of a limited time that we can do it in Florida. You can only interact with the tiger until they’re 40 pounds,” said Randy Stearns, head animal trainer and president of Wild Things.
When full grown, Tony could tip the scales at more than 1,000 pounds. But for now, Tony can be yours to play with at Wild Things.
Would you allow your kids to swim in the pool with the tiger cub? Would you swim with one? Do you think it is safe to swim with tiger cubs? It does sound neato. I think given the chance that I would swim with a tiger cub.
