      We swam with stinger-less jellyfish in Turks and Caicos. It was really neat, but unfortunately they were so tiny and translucent we didn’t capture many photos of them.

      Funny that you ask about tiger cubs, I am currently working on a list of zoos that offer amazing animal encounters in the US. So stay tuned!
