Our first stop in the truck today was at the Tiger Kingdom. The tigers appeared to be kept well and seemed happy and moderately tame (although there is a suspicion that they may be drugged for close contact...)
Our second stop was at the Orchid farm which has a beautiful collection of blooms and a somewhat retro style of decoration.
Our next trip was to the Crocodile Show and sadly it was appalling. The "show" was a classic display of animal cruelty. We watched for a full three minutes in horror as the host poked and prodded a crocodile and stuck his hand in its mouth. Never have I wanted a jaw to clench as much! Needless to say, we left after three minutes. The same company appears to own the Monkey Centre so we gave that a wide berth too!
Just so this blog doesn't end on a sad note, here is a picture of a happy baby tiger! It was great to see them scampering about being fed and petted by families!
