A 24-year-old Siberian-Bengal tiger named Flavio, was caught on camera frolicking in a water spray like a kitten at Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida.

Jen Markham explains why the big cat's antics prove you're never too old to dance in a fountain.

Wild tigers are currently facing some significant challenges. Three of the nine known subspecies of tiger are already extinct.

Some tigers, including the popular white tigers, are a product of inbreeding rather than a true subspecies. They might make good exhibits, but they can’t replace the losses in the wild.

Loss of habitat, loss of genetic diversity, and even a form of fatal distemper may bring more subspecies and perhaps the entire species to the brink of extinction in the wild.

But they’re still thriving in captivity in the right conditions.

In the video 24-year-old Flavio appeared to be as playful as a young kitten. So with any luck we’ll be seeing much more from the world’s oldest tiger. In fact, the new tiger fountain video is just one in a long list of over 300 YouTubes from Big Cat Rescue.(Source)
