Photographer's Note

A playful tiger cub (amongst several others) we saw at the Rhino and Lion Reserve near Johannesburg.

I am not sure what the tiger cubs were doing there or where they were imported from (because, as you all should know, tigers are NOT found in Africa in the first place).

There were 6 or 7 of them, and we could go into their cage and play with them (for a fee, of course). It was an amazing experience!

They were very lively, and we were reminded of just how fierce they can become when one of them playfully bit a friend of mine in the arm (luckily not to deep, but she still had to go for an antibiotic injection afterwards). It took her quite a while to explain at the hospital later that evening that she was in fact bitten by a tiger, and that she realized that this was Africa... :-)
