Zoo season 2 opens with most of the main characters  — Jackson (James Wolk), Abraham (Nonso Anozie), Chloe (Nora Arnezeder) and Mitch (Billy Burke) —  in Washington D.C. trying to escape a computer-generated zoo of predatory animals. They crash and separate. Jackson creates a firewall with leaking gas to hold back the animals and then floors the vehicle into a building, jumping out before impact. He ends up prone on the street at the mercy of a tiger.

Production filmed this sequence with a real tiger and a Jackson double in Vancouver’s Railtown district in late February.

The tiger sniffs Jackson and licks his arm where he was bitten by a dog but doesn’t attack. Why not? Is Jackson mutating into a predator too?
