Baby tigers near Ko Lanta/Krabi/Bangkok

Hi, I'm visiting November and I really want to see baby tigers in Thailand. I found Damnoen Sudak zoo as a place that is caring for the tigers, but also turned out they have no babies anymore. Any ideas where I can see (not chained and drugged) baby tigers near Bangkok/Krabi/Ko Lanta?

Thanks a lot!

Please just DON'T. Handling young animals can pass on may diseases to them. Also ask yourself this question" where is this baby's mother? Why has it been removed from her?" These animals do not enjoy this and find it very stressful. Just DON'T, EVER!!

Loads of other fantastic things to see in Thailand. Have a great holiday. :)

I don't think the OP was asking to pet the baby tigers.

In fairness to the OP they have nowhere mentioned holding baby tigers or wishing to see them separate from their mothers, and any zoo with an active conservation program is likely to have tiger cubs at some time, not that I know of any that fits the bill in Thailand.

Hi, I indeed didn't ask to see baby tigers separated from their mothers, but more a place where they have mother tigers that has babies? I have seen many pictures so is there no such place?What to do in Thailand for an animal lover, please recommend?

If you are an animal lover then why would you go to a place where animals are beaten and drugged? I have been to a zoo in Thailand and saw a tiger being beaten and decided to never go again to these type of disgusting cess pits.

A zoo would be your best bet but most of those are depressing places.

I don't think Thailand is a good place to do anything animal-related, at least not when the animals are held captive.

As animal lover I would avoid all such places, most of the images you see are from places such as Tiger Temple and Tiger Kingdom.
