Tessa Stripes is our newest animal keeper here at Carolina Tiger Rescue. She studied wildlife biology at Virginia Tech. Before coming to Carolina Tiger Rescue, she interned at Wildlife Safari. Her favorite animals to work with are tigers! She enjoys giving the animals at Carolina Tiger Rescue a safe and appropriate home for them. It’s a hard and dirty job, but she loves it! Her favorite time of year at the rescue is the fall, when all the animals get pumpkins for enrichment!

Last time Dr. Hunter talked about Shira and Saber, they had just been introduced and were doing well together. I am happy to report that this is still the case! I just went down to their enclosure about an hour ago and this is how I found them. As you can tell, they continue to get along splendidly! Saber and Shira have been off tour since they were introduced to one another. However, they have been featured on a couple of our live streams which means you can see the duo interacting with one another by going to our Kid’s site Videos page! Find the video titled “Facebook LIVE: Meet Saber White Tiger” and see how you think they are doing living together!
