At the Houston Zoo, yesterday. I visited with a young 9 year old friend, and viewed the animals through new eyes. Lovely experience to see this youngster's enthusiasm.
A tiger by the water.
The stripe pattern is unique to individual tiger ....... just like our thumbprints.

16 months old female tiger
This set of images is from my Christmas trip to Busch Gardens Tampa. I love the tigers, they are so gorgeous! This one was focused on the trainer that had just come to feed the tigers. When I arrived at the tiger habitat there were only a couple of people there but when one of the trainers started talking on the microphone a large crowd gathered.
I was in a perfect viewing position and was minding my own business as I snapped a few shots. However, as the trainer started tossing food and the tigers leaped to catch it, I was distracted by the sound of a small boys joyful laughter. He may have been about a year and a half old and was sitting in a stroller with a sunshade that had been pushed right beside me. As the tigers would leap, the boy would laugh and kick his little legs while pointing at the spectacle. I found myself watching this boy instead of the tigers.
Between the tosses of food and leaps of the tigers, I started looking around at the people that had gathered. it took me a minute to realize that the boys mother was behind the stroller and he was hidden from her view by his protective sunshade. She could hear his laughter but she was not able to see the splendor of his excitement and she could not see the tigers. That was unacceptable! Blocking others that were pushing to get my perfect viewing spot, I reached for the boys mother and pulled the mother to my spot beside her excited little boy. She smiled and said thank you as I made my way out of the crowd.

Tigers are a relatively new addition in Fota Wildlife Park. They are one of my favourite wild animals. There is an area you can walk into with glass around it so that you can see the tigers up close.

White Bengal tigers are fully grown at 2 - 3 years of age. Male White Bengal tigers reach weights of 200 - 230 kilograms and up to three metres in length. The female White Bengal tigers weigh 130 - 170 kilograms and measure up to 2.5 metres long. White Bengal tigers have stripes all over their body. Their stripes are like fingerprints, no two are the same. The stripes are not only in the tigers fur, but are a pigmentation of the skin.
Sumatran Tiger -
The Sumatran tiger is the smallest tiger in the world, a rare subspecies that inhabits the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
Distinguished by heavy black stripes, orange coats, slightly larger manes, and they are very good swimmers. Sadly the Sumatran Tiger is vulnerable to extinction.
Sumatran Tiger was classified as critically endangered by IUCN in 2008. The population is estimated to be less than 500 in the wild today. Tigers face unrelenting poachers, accelerated deforestation due to high logging activities taking place in their natural habitat, causing loss of their habitat and prey.

The original photo of this tiger was taken by lemperleconnie.
Please visit Connie's photostream. You will be so glad that you did.
This tiger was done in Photoshop CS2, hand drawn using a mouse. Layers were used for various parts of the tiger. The eye was a separate layer, as were the ears, face, muzzle, whiskers and body were separate. Remember it is easier to trash a layer than to trash the entire piece. The background was also a separate layer.
Love and Peace

This is Rasul, a tiger at IEAS where I volunteer at (www.bigcat.org). This isn't an angry expression.
He just sniffed the old Christmas tree behind him and this was his reaction. If you ever make the trip to IEAS, he will come up to the cage and say hello.
The tiger (Panthera tigris) is a member of the Felidae family; the largest of the four "big cats" in the genus Panthera. Native to much of eastern and southern Asia, the tiger is an apex predator and an obligate carnivore. Reaching up to 4 metres (13 ft) in total length and weighing up to 300 kilograms (660 pounds), the larger tiger subspecies are comparable in size to the biggest extinct felids. Aside from their great bulk and power, their most recognizable feature is the pattern of dark vertical stripes that overlays near-white to reddish-orange fur, with lighter underparts. The most numerous tiger subspecies is the Bengal tiger while the largest subspecies is the Siberian tiger.
Highly adaptable, tigers range from the Siberian taiga, to open grasslands, to tropical mangrove swamps. They are territorial and generally solitary animals, often requiring large contiguous areas of habitat that support their prey demands. This, coupled with the fact that they are endemic to some of the more densely populated places on earth, has caused significant conflicts with humans. Of the nine subspecies of modern tiger, three are extinct and the remaining six are classified as endangered, some critically so. The primary direct causes are habitat destruction and fragmentation, and hunting. Their historical range, which once reached from Mesopotamia and the Caucasus through most of South and East Asia, has been radically reduced. While all surviving species are under formal protection, poaching, habitat destruction and inbreeding depression continue to be threats.
Nonetheless, tigers are among the most recognizable and popular of the world's charismatic megafauna. They have featured prominently in ancient mythology and folklore, and continue to be depicted in modern films and literature. Tigers appear on many flags and coats of arms, as mascots for sporting teams, and as the national animal of several Asian nations.
