Photo a Day 50 - That is a Good Fence!



"Good Fences"  crept up on me this week and I was stuck for a while. But, I was browsing through my photos and I came across this one taken in Bali  when we were there on holiday.





We were admiring this rather large tiger when we were approached by a zoo keeper who asked isf we would like to feed the tiger - only cost $5. We agreed and were given a long stick with a dead chicken on the end.  You can see my niece feeding the tiger above.  Very exciting if not a little frightening when this huge cat  stretched up to get his reward. The fellow asked if I would like to feed the tiger - I declined , but my cousin agreed. Then Laura (above) fed it again as the fellow kept handing out chickens.  He ten demanded $15 not $5.  he had neglected to tell us that it was $5 a pop!!





The large fellows above were much less frightening and it didn't cost anything to feed them!!

  4. That would be an experience alright to feed the animals. Perfect fences and the animals are a bonus and you and the wee girl.

  6. A much needed fence indeed. I like the curve of the fence in the first shot. I think it would have been fun to feed the tiger. The elephant shots were neat too. I might have been more scared there though as the fencing there doesn't seem to be much at keeping an elephant in line.

    1. It may have been more than $5. I can't remember. I can remember being disgusted though. $5 Aus is a pretty large amount in Bali.
