Daniel Raffo Tigers

Daniel Raffo is a 5th generation circus performer who began presenting animals by the time he was 13 years old. He began performing as an acrobat, juggler and a high-wire artist in his family's circus.

Daniel's deep respect and compassion for the animal kingdom began in his childhood. He tended to the animals living in his family's safari park in Argentina.

Daniel and his feline cohorts consist of Siberian, Sumatra and Bengal tigers. He trains his four-legged partners for four years before they can join the act. The tigers slowly get acclimated to the music, lights and non-stop action.

The maneuvers that the tigers perform are extentions of their natural abilities and each have their own characteristics.
