Blogtober Day 11 – My Favourite Type Of Animal

Day 11 of the Blogtober challenge, is what is my favourite type of animal.

Everyone knows I am  a huge animal lover, and I have a very old cat and 2 dogs. I would have a lot more if I could, but my favourite animal is a tiger.

If there is a documentary on tigers, or if we visit anywhere that there is a tiger I will have to watch them.  They are just gorgeous.

I am not sure what it is about tigers that I love so much. Yes I know they are killers but they are also fascinating. The way they move, the way they play and they are stunning.

I remember going to a safari park when I was younger and being so excited to go through the tigers. Until we got stuck in a traffic jam, one came very near to the car and looked through the window. I remember being scared and excited at the same time.

I have 2 documentaries about tigers that I could watch again and again, one is on a reserve and is filmed over many years, from the tiger being very young and how it learnt to survive, how they do protect their young and how they learn to survive, right up until it was elderly.

The other I watched last year and was a series of programs, about a man who worked on a tiger conservation site, and he raised 2 young cubs in his house and as they got bigger integrated them in with the other tigers he used to take them for walks on leads.  I would love to do that.

What is your favourite animal?

    Have you seen the beautiful new tiger enclosure at London Zoo? I love it and it looks much more like a happy place for tigers to live than it used to do.

    I’m liking your pick. Tigers definitely have a cool way of moving. My favorite animal is probably the polar bear.

    I love a koala. They’re my spirit animal. Like, they’re so cute & cuddly and they’re just sitting there, chilling, getting high on eucalyptus, but they can be totally vicious when threatened, and can kill with one bite. Not because of the force, but just because they’re too lazy to bathe.
    Yup, we’re total twins!
