Tiger Temple Part 5, The Bigger Guys

Trying to get the tigers to play with our "toys" was my least favorite part of the experience. Most of the cats were uninterested. The volunteers/handlers with the plastic bag covered boxes had the most luck getting the tigers to actually jump up.
If we wanted to we could get into the water. Ross and I declined. It was plenty fun to watch from a bit higher up. At one point two of the tigers decided to walk behind us. They had told us not to turn your back on a tiger, so Ross and I turned around. The volunteers instantly formed a human shield between us and the tigers. It was impressive.
After that we got to walk a big tiger. I think this tiger was 3 years old. It was really dirty, covered in red dirt, so it didn't quite look orange.
