Yes, a grown up tiger/lion can eat more than 25 kilos of meat a day. In Taygan they give them 10 kilos a day to keep them fit. They have around 110 animals, so it's 1 ton of meat a day. Animals need good quality meat or they can fell ill. So you can imagine how much it costs them to keep all animals healthy and fit.
Btw, here is a new vid about Amur tigress Vasilisa. You can skip the guy in the beginning.
She is, tigers are so beautiful, it is unreal. But — vicious predators, unlike lions — they actually enjoy killing their prey — slowly, playing with it, suffocating it slowly, etc. It is quite horrible really. I watched a BBC nature programme about it once — it was scary.
It is good that they don't overfeed them. If you think about it - in the wild they don't even eat every day, they eat maybe once a week or twice, when they kill an animal.
Re Tory leadership — because of Gove coming out with his cocaine confession — https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/06/10/... — his chances are now very low. It is not so much the fact that he took Cocaine, a lot of people do it recreationally during their clubbing days and don't get hooked or anything, it is cause of hypocrisy. He used to insist on very hard punishment for recreational drug takers when he was in Cameron's Government and all the time he knew that he himself took it and escaped punishment continuously. It is just hypocritical and people here hate hypocrisy from any politician. So — it seems there will be Hunt/ Johnson finale. I spoke to someone today at work who is «in the know», works for one of the Government departments and he predicted that Hunt will win, cause Boris has too many enemies in the Party. Well, we will soon find out — in a couple of weeks. The issue is — how will a hard Brexiteer push their agenda through the current Remainer Parliament? We might end up with a General Election to break this impasse.

Oh, I heard about him a day ago. I bet we have the same problem in Russia. It seems like a lot of our officials take drugs. They are completely out of touch with reality. Sad but true

By the way, your English has improved tremendously since you started posting here, well done! You speak more like an Englishman now, rather than an American. Well done.
What a shame. Well, you can talk to me. I speak better than them anyway. My English is absolutely perfect. Any "mistakes" I make - they are natural, colloquial, the same as people here make. For example - I said to you the other day - "don't take no notice of me" - the correct way of saying it is of course "don't take any notice of me" , but here in England - colloquially - people say "don't take no notice of me " - for emphasis. It is - kind of - a natural mistake. Do you see what I mean?
