Maya, the Bengal tiger

Just found pictures of Maya, a tiger at Greenville Wildlife Park, where I used to volunteer at. He was mostly grown by the time I met him, but I miss him, and the other animals, dearly. Maya always used to try hiding behind a small bush in his enclosure, trying to be camouflaged.

I wish I could find pictures of Nitro, the leopard there, so named as he would often run around his enclosure. He used to lick our hands; we referred to it as "tenderizing".

There was also Joshua, a lion cub. I remember him pawing at the plexiglass of his enclosure at me. And the lady who took him for walks, well really he took her for walks, hehe!

I miss the red wolf, lions, and hyenas, too. There are days that I really miss doing this sort of thing.
