Jumping for food

One of the tigers of the zoo of Zürich jumping to catch a piece of meat hung on a rope. The keepers often chose this method, so that they have some fun and 'sport' before eating, and it's kind of rewarding.

 

It's nice to see how their bodies are long (in this position, tigers are almost three meters tall).

 

I just wish that shot was better framed...
