Tigers – Assiniboine Park Zoo

It is unlikely that I will ever be able to see Tigers in the wild – so the zoo is the next best place.   It was very exciting when 2 young Tigers were born there last year and I visited a few times to watch them.  They were usually sleeping and I have never been able to watch them play.  I really wish they had bigger enclosures for them though.

While I was away this summer, one of the cubs died, so now there is just the one with mom – dad is kept in an adjacent enclosure.  They have switched enclosures since the last time I was there.  Dad had his head up, but his eyes closed and it was difficult getting a picture of him in the location he was in.  Mom and cub were dozing in the other enclosure and I think it is the cub that I managed to get a couple of pictures of.  Since they weren’t standing, I could not compare sizes and only one was looking my direction.

I think this looks like a baby face – but I really don’t know.

Now – after taking Chester for a walk,  it is time to settle down and watch the cams at Africam to find out what has been happening while I was spending the night sleeping.  Have a great day!
