Early morning exercise with "Adira" a Sumatran tiger. A trip to the Gold Coast - Queensland with grandaughters to spend an hour walking with this beautiful animal - just the four of us, plus keepers and photographer. Amazing to watch cat like behaviour - scratching on trees, sniffing various scents, climbing and investigating a large pile of discarded branches and best of all - lying down and allowing us to pat her. Yes, we had to sign an indemnity agreement before going on the walk!
