    I thought I would share this pic with the members of the BOC. Over the weekend my boys, wife and myself checked out some tiger and liger cubs at the local mall in our town. They sure were cute little guys. For a small donation, we got the chance to pet them and be the cage with them. The one shown in the avatar was only 6 wks. old. Little booger drew blood on my leg by walking across it. Man do they have claws! There was around 10 cubs in all. They were rescued from previous owners and are on tour for showing. My boys really enjoyed it!

    Thanks.

    thanks guys for the replies. it was quite the experience for my family and myself to handle the tiger cubs. it would be awesome to have one for a pet, but only at a young age! they have to feed them like 6 times a day! bottle feeding. one of the gals said it costs $80 every day for each cub to feed them the formula they need. very expensive!!:crazy:
