Florida zoo offers tiger cub for a swim buddy

DADE CITY, Fla. -- A Florida zoo is offering a tiger cub as a swim buddy.

You just have to shell out $200. Tony the tiger cub is the zoo's most popular attraction!

"It’s about 30 minutes and what you get to do is come out and play with the tiger cub,” said Randy Stearns. “You get to spend some time on the land playing with them running around. Sometimes, he'll take his bottle so you get to feed him and you actually get to get in the water with him.”

Wildlife conservation officers said tigers like Tony can have full contact with visitors until they reach 25 pounds.
