Yesterday we visited Tiger World in Rockwell, NC. In addition to seeing a variety of tigers, a slew of lions, and even some Syrian Brown Bears, we had a chance to see two ligers! I doubt it needs any explaining, but a liger is a cross between a male lion and a tigress and, you know, it's bred for its skills in magic. The liger, Lil' Wayne, was pretty much Lauren's favorite animal there. She even paced with it for a while.
|Lil' Wayne was totally sizing us up.|

|The pacing lasted several minutes. Other zoo visitors captured it on film too.|
|A heartfelt farewell.|
Thanks for the fun, Tiger World!
