Mario’s Adventure: A Visit With A Baby Tiger!

This was such an exciting Day!

Mario got to spend 15 minutes with a baby tiger last summer (July 2013).

And ironically the baby tiger’s name is Summer!

There was a charity event in St. Augustine, FL and we were invited by a friend who had reserved a 15 minute visit with Summer for Mario.

Summer was 10 weeks old when we met her…

It was possibly a once in a lifetime experience, not only for Mario but for ME too…It was awesome to actually pet a REAL tiger!

Mario really loved spending time with Summer!  I love seeing his face light up with amazement…

Here’s a short video I made of Mario’s visit with Summer to share with you all-  Enjoy!

Also check out this article to read some myths about tigers.  I didn’t know some of these, very interesting!


Isn’t Summer adorable?

        Hi Randy,

        Yes, the visit with Summer also made us wish we had one too, but considering how big they get (and quickly!) that wouldn’t be such a great idea after all,lol! But our homes would be VERY protected!
