Wild Things is a zoo in Dade City, Florida, where visitors can get close to the animals. Kelsey Johnson, one of two main caretakers, does most of the animal fostering. But it's her own dog, Tyber, that tends to be the most demanding. He has so much energy it can be hard for people to keep up with him.
Tyber needed a friend he could play with. Zebras and bears weren't a good fit, but while the tigers and Tyber liked each other, the tigers were too big to play with the dog. But one night, Thunder, a Bengal tiger cub, was born. Because there was a storm at the time, his mother rejected him. Kelsey rescued him and Thunder is now thriving.
They decided to put Tyber and Thunder together to see if they would get along. Despite some initial worries, the two ended up best of friends. They bonded and thanks to their similar energy level they can play a lot. Tyber even overcame his discomfort around water to be with his friend, Thunder. This adorable friendship will be interesting to watch develop, and will always have a special place in their hearts.
