Sai Mai, a 26-month-old tigress, plays with piglets at a zoo in Thailand's Chonburi province, 80 kilometers (50 miles) east of Bangkok. The Royal Bengali tigress was born in captivity and breast-fed by a sow for four months after her birth. Piglets even sleep on the tigress! The zoo is trying to boost visitor numbers by teaching domestic animals such as pigs, and wild animals such as tigers, to live together in harmony from an early age. This is really an extraordinary example, since at the first glance you can just think how those piglets are going to get swiped, and yet, the story turns around.
