Turns out it wasn't too bad, although (and i'm no expert in these things) I reckon a grown tiger deserves enough space to swing itself in.
Incidentally - there are a pair of tigers there aptly named William and Kate - although there was no evidence of their wedded bliss. (nor were the penguins and giraffes joining in a disney-like chorus of 'oops upside yer head.) - I'm not kidding - here's proof:
ROYAL TIGERS AT RIO ZOO!
Needless to say we left the zoo sharpish.
(Its really cheap to get in though - R$5 buys you all the caged up shenanigans you can goggle at!)
