Tiger Kingdom Chiangmai.
The first Tiger Kingdom branch was founded in Ubon rachatanee in the year 2000 and was named Ubon Zoo. There we have many kinds of animals. Nowadays, we have more than 50 - 60 tigers at the zoo and this number will continue to increase in the future as the breeding program continues to become more successful. In resent years the income from the zoo has remained at the same level. This is a problem as the amount of animals goes up but the income stays the same. For this reason on the 24th March 2008 Tiger Kingdom was founded in Chiang mai as a 2nd branch of Ubon Zoo in order to earn more income. As well as providing the much needed extra cash Tiger Kingdom also provides the extra space and enclosures that the tigers needed to be comfortable.
Tigers at Tiger Kingdom are hand raised by their trainers since young, bonding with it throughout the development process. The trainer employ a combination of repetition, trust and encouragement to train their big cats and over time the Big Cat are use to human and often see us as one of the family. In Tiger Kingdom,our well-trained and experience staffs will ensure your duty, but these Big Cats are still wild animal that you need to treat with respect.
HOW TO TOUCH THEM
Our Big Cats are handled, stroked and petted on a daily basis, so even the roughest of petting will not bother these Big Cats. It's normal to them and that is why our cats are so relax when you play with them.
If you gently stroke the cats,it will feel ticklish and irritated,especially to a sleeping tiger. The best method is to cuddle and stroke the cat firmly to make it feel comfortable.
Baby Tiger are playful and likely to play with you. Sometime when playing it tends to be a bit rough or bite, so do be careful when handle with them.
