    These magnificant animals have been bred at the Si Racha Tiger Zoo, near Pattaya in Thailand. They have a rather unusal breeding programme which includes the young cubs being suckled by a pig. Whatever they do it seems to work. They do have tiger and crocodile shows, but for me the main attraction is just watching them in the enclosure without any fences or glass between man and beast. I took most of these using my Sigma 120-300 2.8.

    Nice set, they look so relaxed, well except for no. 5, nice to see these sort of conditions where the cats are not just pacing up and down.

    mark.
