Dear Africa, Stop Confusing Me with Tigers!
Tigers are not native to Africa, in case you didn’t know. I have to admit that before moving to South Africa, I did not know there were no African tigers. I mean, I knew from American zoos that there were “Bengal tigers” and “Siberian tigers” and when we used to play pool four days a week, we knew a dude who raised ligers in Pennsylvania.
But I always assumed (yeah, I know) that there would also be tigers in Africa, because wtf…it’s Africa. Doesn’t everything come from here?
Well of course not, and origins aside, it’s still pretty amazing how close these places let the public get to the wildlife. In today’s video and photo, we were in the breeding area of the Lion and Rhino Reserve in Krugersdorp.
Seeing that I am apparently a pee magnet, I thought I would share yet another scent-marking video. It’s short and sweet, and my favorite part is the little leg shake at the end.
Happy “Over the Hump” Day!
