Golden Eyes - Tiga the Tiger

I'm sure I've mentioned before how Tiga, the Malayan Tiger at the San Diego Zoo, has beautiful gold eyes. Here are some recent images from Sunday September 29 that really show them off.


In this next shot Tiga was intently watching to see where the keeper was going to toss her mid-morning snack, a big cow femur bone.


It wound up, intentionally, in a couple feet of water, and Tiga had to go in and get it.



It didn't take her long at all.




Later in the afternoon, after Tiga went in, Danai came out. I didn't get many pictures of her, and she's moving kind of slow these days. She'll be twenty years old this month.


I also managed to get a shot of Bullet the Fishing Cat on my way out on Sunday late afternoon. I've not seen him in a while. This time of year has some of the best late afternoon light for both the tigers and the fishing cats.
