Your morning adorable: Tigers and...dolphins, oh my

Dolphin + Tiger = BFF?

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom staff recently made an introduction that would never have taken place in the wild. 

Akaasha, a 6-month-old female Bengal tiger, is taken on a daily walk around the park.  On Thursday, her stroll took her past the bottlenose dolphin exhibit, where she had an up-close-and-personal encounter with some Atlantic bottlenose dolphins.

More photos of the unusual meeting after the jump!

What beautiful photos! You can see the communication and curiosity between both parties. And I utterly adore the dolphin who has the hula hoop on it's flipper throughout the meeting - just heartwarming!

What an innocent and touching moments captured; a sensitive spate of photos for us to enjoy quiet few moments without mention of death or devastation or murder....very refreshing! Thanks!

aw.. my two favorite animals together! <3
