Hello, big cat! I mean… sleepy tiger

As a Growling Tiger, it was a privilege to have a photo taken with this sleepy cutie.

Why are you disturbing my afternoon nap?!

It was so surreal. If it weren’t moving, I would mistake it for a tiger stuffed toy. Haha.

Giving me a look that says, “Yow, paparazzi, back off!”

We also witnessed a show wherein the staff members ask volunteers from the audience. With the assistance of the staff, the volunteers get the opportunity to be close to the animals. It was a highly interactive experience, but not for the faint of heart.

Best thing about Baluarte? Entrance is free of charge! Hope you enjoyed the photos as much as I enjoyed taking photos of these furry friends!
