    Finally, I have something to aspire to. The hand music, I mean. That hair is beyond me.

  16. I love how mama gives one of her babies a little push over the tree trunk at 0:21. I could watch that on repeat all day.

    Why oh why am I not a wildlife keeper?

  17. My cat Penny was VERY interested by the baby tigers on the screen either that or it was the noise of the cameras click clicking that intrigued her.

  18. Is that what it was? I kept wondering why there were so many elecrtic typewriter noises!

  19. T.U.M. that’s what I thought too! But I think Gigi is right.

  32. Somehow, the thing I notice is that tigers have the same floppy belly pooch as small cats do…
