Good morning from T.I.G.E.R.S.! Would you like to see a one of a kind animal exhibit? How about watching live exotic animals interacting with their handlers?
The animals at T.I.G.E.R.S. and Preservation Station in Myrtle Beach are hand raised from the time they are very young. They are given thousands of hours of training and constant care by their individual trainers. We have such a strong relationship with the animals that recently we were able to go in the den box with one of the female tigers and assist while she gave birth to her cubs. One of the first things the baby cubs saw when they opened their eyes were their human friends.
People often think it is dangerous to get so close to wild animals like these, but the handlers here at T.I.G.E.R.S. have been with these animals since they were cubs and have developed a special friendship based on love and respect. All of the trainers live with the animals 24 hours a day.
T.I.G.E.R.S. has a proven method of dealing with these animals: Never treat them as pets; lots of tender loving care; and thousands of hours of one-on-one handling. This training is beneficial to the animals in many ways.
