Today is about tigers. We had a chance to see them and photograph pretty close. They are magnificent cats, aren't they? The beautiful, striped coat and that powerful, mesmerizing gaze make the tiger one of the world’s most revered animals. In the same time the tiger is like a big pussycat, I could see a lot of resemblance to Anna's cat Whiskey when one of the tigers was sleeping fully stretched on his back with curled paws (very cute and innocent pose), the other one was licking his paws exactly like Whiskey when he does his daily toilet. Then the two tigers were playing with a big block of wood in the water and were pushing it around just like a domestic cat playing with his toys.
A tiger in a wild can weigh exceptionally up to 388.7 kg - that's 59.8 times more than Whiskey (he is a very large and overweight cat by the way) and can reach a total body length of up to 3.38 m. I felt privileged to be able to watch these powerful and in the same time cute animals carrying on their usual activities. They look very fluffy and cuddly, but I don't think it would be a good idea trying to cuddle a tiger. Let's stick to our domestic cats for now :-)
