Il “jacuzi” delle tigri

SCIENZA – I gatti solitamente odiano l’acqua, mentre i grandi felini sembrano amarla. Le tigri ad esempio amano nuotare o semplicemente restare immerse a rilassarsi; l’unica indecisione potrebbe esserci al momento dell’entrare in acqua, ma poi è un piacere unico.

Il bio parco “T.I.G.E.R.S.” – acronimo di “The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species” – non lontano da Miami, Florida, ha persino sperimentato con successo un percorso di addestramento con le tigri, volto a creare un legame più facile tra l’uomo e la tigre, sempre in piscina.


Cats usually hate the water but, oddly enough, the great felines seem to love it. Tigers for example adore swimming or simply a relaxing soak. There may be a moment of indecision before they jump in, but once they’re there, they don’t want to come back out.

T.I.G.E.R.S. – an acronym for “The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species”” – a bio park near Miami, Florida, has even been experimenting with a swimming pool-based training program to help facilitate bonding between humans and tigers.
