Meet Akaasha and Maverick


A Bengal tiger cub looks straight into the eyes of an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin in this amazing photo at a theme park in Vallejo, California.

Akaasha the tiger and Maverick the dolphin are now firm friends after their one-on-one at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.

Employees at the theme park said the female cub appeared mesmerized by the movements of the mammal on the other side of the glass—especially when Maverick blew an approving bout of bubbles towards the tiger.
