    those fangs are about 3.5 inches - no wonder they can do so much damage
    i was about 6 feet away during this capture

    The Tiger

    TIGER, tiger, burning bright
    In the forests of the night,
    What immortal hand or eye
    Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

    In what distant deeps or skies
    Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
    On what wings dare he aspire?
    What the hand dare seize the fire?

    And what shoulder and what art
    Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
    And when thy heart began to beat,
    What dread hand and what dread feet?

    What the hammer? what the chain?
    In what furnace was thy brain?
    What the anvil? What dread grasp
    Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

    When the stars threw down their spears,
    And water'd heaven with their tears,
    Did He smile His work to see?
    Did He who made the lamb make thee?

    Tiger, tiger, burning bright
    In the forests of the night,
    What immortal hand or eye
    Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

      Okay, the coolest thing that nobody seems to have noticed is that if you look at the original size you can actually see the saliva dripping down the left fang....Now that's awesome photography!

      Hey do you(anybody) know(s) what kind of tiger she or he is?

    14. Khushroo Ghadiali 55 months ago | reply

      i believe its a Bengal tiger

    15. Little Lioness 51 months ago | reply

      This tiger is a Bengal tiger with a genetic mutation which alters the color of its coat. The mutation is VERY rare and only exists in captive genepools. Due to this rarity, they're often inbred in order to produce more offspring, which creates a host of mental and physical ailments. You can read more on this at the group below:
