If you've lived in the UAE for long enough then you already know the penchant citizens of the Emirates have for bringing home and Instagramming exotic animals.

Recently, a viral Facebook video shows five tigers having a swim and lounging about in the Arabian sea right by the iconic Burj Al Arab. 

The five tigers are seen chasing each other as the waves crash into them and cooling off afterwards in the water. 

While the location of the video is not known, Dubai residents have speculated that it was shot in palaces along King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street. The animals look to be a mix of the Royal Bengal tigers and the rare White tigers.

This is not the first time a video of tigers playing on the beach has gone viral on social media, and many are speculating this may be an old video that has resurfaced. 

His Highness Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai is a lover of animals often pictured with different exotic species on his personal Instagram page.
