Big, big cats at the Tiger Temple

The tiger temple is pretty famous in Thailand. A bunch of monks look after a bunch of tigers, training them, to be calm, and not eat raw meat, instead bottle feeding them and cooking their dinner for them. I was really excited when we arrived, because our tour guide Lilly was really pushy and got us right in the lines for everything we wanted to do. We got tons and tons of photos with the giant tigers, who were between 5 and 10 years old. They werent sleepy or drugged, like a lot of people have suggested, and they played with balls and sticks while we were there, but were quite alright with us leaning over them to take the photos. I was really pleased, as each tiger had its own photographer, who got me some really cute up close shots. Lilly also took off with my camera (we think she secretly wanted one of her own) and she got some great photos of a monk bottle feeding a teenager tiger!
