The dolphin looks nervous, but it's OK because she is first given a dose of antacids to treat her stress-induced ulcers that come from the never-ending, repetitive human interactions she must perform before being allowed to eat. She's stuck in a shallow, cement cage, forced to kiss your gross sunscreen-tasting face. At least you only have to be in this brown, dirty water for 30 minutes since that is how long your $250 'is it my turn yet?' experience lasts.
The Tiger temple is more like a prison. In-between doses of sedatives the tigers get a chance to get teased by you and a group of idiots.
The elephant you're about to ride is now chained to a tree & looks a bit irritated. He won't harm you after being unchained because he was previously 'broken' as part of his training to prepare for carrying around overweight tourists 12 hours a day. The breaking of the elephant, called the Phajaan (crush), includes being beaten by many men & stabbed repeatedly with sticks full of sharp nails.
