Devika--not even with glass in between?
The zoo has a new habitat for the tigers, where they can come up to the glass and look right in our face! (Wonder what they would do without the glass?)

Devika--you have tigers at the zoo, too? Are there any in the wild?

Lorraine--That would be great, but then both of us might be endangered...

Devika--that sounds like a wonderful setup--

Janice--Thanks--yes, there is not much for them to do in that small habitat--

Kai--cute, isn't he? Don't think I'm going to pet him, though...

This beautiful pic and comments bring to my mind this text:
"A baby will play near a hole where cobras live.
A young child will put his hand into a nest where poisonous snakes live.
None of those animals will harm or destroy anything or anyone on my holy mountain of Zion".

(Isaiah 11:8-9)

Tiger will be in your backyard and in my too.
