UPDATE: Time to announce yet another #TripTuesday winner - Desirae Cornett ! Congratulations to Desirae for correctly guessing yesterday's Trip Tuesday secret: you can interact with wild animals, including tiger cubs, at Myrtle Beach's T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station - a wildlife exhibit and living tiger museum. Desirae has entered the contest via Twitter (you can enter via Facebook, Twitter or blog). Thank you, everyone, for all your entries! Stay in touch, and get ready for the next #TripTuesday!
This unique station is a fundraising effort for the conservation projects of the Rare Species Fund. Visitors are greeted by some of the rarest cats in the world: Bengal tigers, royal white Bengal tigers the Golden Tabby tiger.
Now, how about getting up close and personal with these felines? Guests have a chance to have a tiger cub sit on their lap during their visit. Or, if you like your animals more simian-like, how about cuddling up to one of the preserve's apes? How cool is that?
Don't fret, the trainers will be there to capture it on camera for you. Because, who would really believe you if you said you held a baby tiger?
This is truly a one-of-a-kind experience, and one every animal lover should take full advantage of.
