If only all tigers could have such carefree moments! It's just astounding to me to see these big cats play like our little kittens! :-}
Thanks, Cher!

I have visited Longleat many times. Generally I do not agree with keeping wild animals in captivity but both the management at Longleat Park, and Lord Bath, who owns the estate, clearly make every effort to ensure that the animals kept there are well looked after.

These Amur Tigers are so beautiful. The leaf litter also provided the perfect opportunity for them to practice their ambush skills - itís quite a sight to see fully-grown tigers leaping over piles of leaves!"
Thank You Cher.
