    Default The pig that woke up to find a tiger in his cage

    For this odd couple, a nap isn't complete without a snuggle.
    The fact that one is a tiger and the other a pig doesn't seem to matter one bit.
    In fact, tigers and pigs cuddling together is a common sight at the Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand.
    Nap time: A piglet and a tiger cub snuggle together at the Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand

    Rise and shine: The tiger cub yawns and the piglet stretches its little trotter as the pair begin to slowly awaken

    The zoo, located near Pattaya, a popular Thai beach resort, is one of the largest tiger zoos in the world.
    More than 400 Bengal tigers are housed there - in some very unusual circumstances.
    The zoo promotes 'happy families' of mixed species - often mixing tiger cubs with sows and piglets with tiger mothers.

    Cute: Left, the piglet and cub are blissfully dreaming. Right, a tiger cub at the zoo with its adoptive mother - a sow

    The 100-acre zoo, which opened in 1997, also boasts 10,000 crocodiles - though apparently they are not mixed with the tigers or pigs.
    The crocodiles do wrestle with brave female handlers, however, the zoo claims on its website.
    Elephants at the zoo play basketball and take part in fashion shows, while the tigers are trained to leap through burning hoops and the pigs race one another.
