Rokan comes out of the shadows, 12/21/2005 at the National Zoo in Washington D.C.


Rokan is the adult male Sumatran Tiger, father of the 3 cubs I've photographed so much. He and Soy have mated again this winter, and hopefully he was successful, and some cubs are on the way... Soy's been in heat a few times and this past week or so the two were allowed to be together, and they did the deed. :)


You can read about the 3 brothers' move to Denver on the Zoo's site.
