Tigers and Pigs

At the Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand, tigers and pigs have learned to co-habitat with each other to the point of rearing each others offspring. Interestingly, the Royal Bengali tigress shown above nursing piglets was born in captivity and breast-fed by a female pig for four months after her birth.

The mixing of pigs and tigers, especially of their piglets and cubs, is common form of visual entertainment provided by the zoo for the amusement of the visitors.
