Tiger snacking underwater

Seriously aggressive tiger

I took this at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom just North of San Francisco.

I really only went to 6 Flags for the Roller coasters so I only took my Canon S70 compact.

The image needed a fair bit of cropping in Lightroom, but is essentially real, unaltered and unmodified.

The Tigers put on a show and get fed treats as a reward.

The agressive feeding is natural and instinctive.

Thank goodness for thickened tough safety glass.
