Tail of 2 Tigers and 2 Cubs

September 26th, Tale of 2 Tigers event at Cougar Mountain Zoo.

Taj and Almos were to be introduced to their new enclosure. Unfortunately, they didn't cooperate. I think there was a little stage fright goin' on. The ever-creative curator Robyn, had a plan B. The cubs Vitez and Bhagira got to go play in the new enclosure, as did all of us visitors. There are some pictures in the sequence.

Rough Play

These big boys play rough.
When their paw connect, you can hear the thwap.
They are connecting, but without claw extended.
I could only imagine if they were serious what would happen.
At the end of combat, they groom each other.

Java from Point Defiance Zoo (Tacoma)

I have not been to PDZA very often. I will be going more this year as my sweet wife got me a membership.

Sunday, Java was out, so pictures of him:

Vitez and Baghira Tiger cubs

Yes, more pictures of the tiger cubs.
Vitez is the little royal white, and Baghira is the standard orange cub.

Too cute to not post.
