A Few Tiger Pictures From Saturday

The Malayan tiger cubs at the San Diego Zoo spent most of the morning Saturday playing around in the water. Every now and then they would chase around the rest of their habitat. 

Mom alternated between ignoring them, hanging out near them at the pool, and occasionally wandering around on her own. She can go from being a peaceful looking, almost friendly cat to looking like a total psycho in no time at all.



Here's little Conner biting his brother Christopher on the back.



This last shot is pretty blurry, and is actually only a small portion of the original frame. All three cats were up at the very top of the habitat, way in the corner. The size of the paws and the extended claws on Conner reminded me of the Puss-N-Boots character from Shrek.
