Mom Captures Daughter's Unique Interaction With Tiger
Rachel Sebastian 2/8/2018
Seeing animals up close is an incredible experience for kids, and trips to the zoo provide them with invaluable appreciation for the world's most majestic creatures. A regular trip to the zoo ended up being more than one family bargained for when they reached the tiger enclosure. Because, as all moms know, nothing turns out quite like you expect it to.
This family visited the zoo in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and headed to see the tigers. One three-year-old girl arrived at the tiger enclosure holding her toy stuffed animal, and placed it on the ledge in front of the protective glass.
The tiger eyes the toy from across the room, and what he does next makes the three-year-old laugh with excitement. Her mom sees what the tiger is about to do, and tells her daughter to look through the glass.
She runs over to the glass to see the tiger up close, and that's when the tiger and the little girl have an incredible bonding moment over the toy. The tiger can't keep his eyes off the toy, and it's easy to see he doesn't want the girl to take the toy away.
As the tiger sits right next to the glass, he looks at the toy, and then the little girl. She picks up the toy and takes it away from the tiger, as the tiger follows the toy with his eye. So, the little girl almost immediately puts the toy back. What happens after the little girl puts her stuffed animal back up on the ledge has her mom - and the Internet - swooning.
This little girl undoubtedly had a wonderful experience at the zoo, as she can't seem to get enough of this adorably curious tiger! Their interaction is heartwarming, as this little girl wants to share her treasured toy with the massive tiger.
