Pigs In Blankets

We found this bizarrely adorable photo on the web this morning and could not resist sharing!

The image shows a tigress sleeping with five little piglets, all wrapped up in tiger print cloth, sleeping on her. The story with the image was of a depressed tigress that, after losing her newborns after a premature birth, was given piglets disguised as tiger cubs (convincing…) as a replacement to boost her mood.

After a bit of research, it seems that this actually wasn’t the case and that inter-species mixing is commonplace at the Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand.

Either way, these are SUPER cute… who knew tigers loved pigs in blankets? This could have ended very differently!
