There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Again, not trying to start anything...only posting this because of the low view count and the recent upload date.  Not a fight, just a brief interaction.

Thank you.  I'm pretty sure these videos are not from Everland too.

At 560lbs, doc is the largest Cat at Noahs ark.
He is 1.5 times the size of Shere Khan and Leo from the famous BLT.

"While some cats are a little hesitant to investigate their daily enrichment, you can always count on Doc to dive right in! He grabbed his meat pop and took off, batting it around the enclosure. Little Anne (the bear he lives with) was happily munching on a watermelon when this picture was taken so don't worry, she got something fun, too "

Look how massive his hind legs are. What a monster tiger, packed with bulk and strength.

I've always been curious about this massive tiger that was in with these male lions.
If anybody knows about where this was, I still have not found out.

This looks new to me, but I've been proven wrong before.  One of the more experienced forum members will no doubt show that it's been around since 2004.  If so, sorry.  The narrative is good as well.

This video makes me so mad, look how malnourished that tigress is, so skinny with a deformed back and both animals pacing which is a sign of unease and stress.
Now if she was a rescue from a bad situation I would feel different but this looks to be a terrible situation for both animals.

Life in that cage must surely be sad.  Those animals are truly being exploited for money. 

I follow this place on facebook:
http://www.turpentinecreek.org/

They are continually improving conditions for the animals they house.  They rescue animals from situations similar to the video and even worse.

Their habitats are spacious and their attempts at enriching the lives of the animals they care for are noble.

Yet, Turpentine Creek and others like Big Cat Rescue make HUGE income. They are BIG attractions...and no one questions their motivation.

The difference between these places and that zoo is the incomes made are not at the expense of these captive wild animals.

Or are they?

Just food for thought...
