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!
