  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

It takes a brave man to put his hands inside a tiger's mouth but this Buddhist monk seems to know exactly what he is doing.

The big cats and the monks at the Tiger Temple have a unique relationship as the animals were either born in captivity or hand-reared from cubs.

As these amazing pictures show, tourists and staff are able to get closer to the animals than almost anywhere else in the world.
