Just one of the MANY Exxon Stations in Texas
This one is on the Seawall - Galveston.
One immediately thinks of Exxon when you mention there is a Tiger Truck Stop. No, I'm afraid this one is different. It starts like this:
On the way to LSU in Baton Rouge, I noticed the sign at the side of I-10 near Grosse Tete. No doubt I had to check this place out! As soon as drove in, I could tell this place is highly tigerrific - A Tiger Restaurant, Gas Station and yes, the cage with the live tigers.
See Live Tigers - WOW!
One frustrated Tiger! Look at the heavy iron bars!
Exactly like being in prison. He growled!
I couldn't help notice the amount of steel between myself and the Tigers. Yes, folks, these are dangerous animals. No doubt about it, since I would be dangerous too in that kind of cage. Not suprising the caged area also reaked to high heaven.
Finally I should point out that conveniently, the truckers' showers were next to the Tiger Den. Well, how about that! Imagine taking a shower, then getting quite a suprise after the steam settles. A stripey friend blocking the door, staring at you and licking his chops! It can happen, given the proximity. I suspect it does happen to those truckers who don't pay their diesel bills !
When my flash went off, as I took these pictures, the Tiger roared at me! Goes right through you!
