Here are a few shots of the big cats from the San Diego Zoo this morning. When I first arrived the tiger was napping at the top of the hill, so that meant it was time to check out the leopards and mountain lions. I ran into a friend at the tiger enclosure, and we headed off to Cat Canyon.
We passed by the Red Panda on the way.
The California Mountain Lions (Puma, Cougar, or several other names) were a bit more visible, at least for a bit.
I happened to be in front of the Amur Leopard just as an Arctic Wolf walked by with a keeper on the roadway below. That always gets their attention.
I went back and hung out with the tiger for a while, but did not get many shots. On the way back to the exit I did catch a glimpse of the Fishing Cat.
