Lions, Tigers, and Ligers, Oh My!

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. 
Two tasty morsels looking like delicacies in front of Lil' Wayne. 
Lauren, the Liger Whisperer.
The pacing lasted several minutes.  Other zoo visitors captured it on film too.
A heartfelt farewell.

Thanks for the fun, Tiger World!
