Happy is a 300 lb 3 year old Indochinese Tiger. He has been raised at the Tiger Temple since he was a cub after his mother was poached and killed. Because of habitat destruction and his familiarity with humans, he could not survive in the wild on his own. After spending the day with him and the other tigers, I understand that for the time being, this is the best possible situation for him as he is cared for, fed and able to spend most of his time un-caged in exchange for a few hours a day of pictures with the visitors here.
He is napping since tigers are nocturnal hunters and generally spend their days resting. 5 months ago
