Cinta and Berani - Malayan Tigers at the San Diego Zoo

I spent about 4 hours watching Cinta and Berani on Saturday morning.  They alternated between hanging out at opposite ends of the large habitat sort of watching each other (and from where I was standing, both often completely out of my line of sight) and chasing each other around and even playing in the pool together.  It was great fun to watch, even if most of the time I couldn't even see them.

Here's Cinta, on his way to take a swim.

Here's Berani, looking up the hill to see what his brother is up to.

Several times during the morning they decided to chase each other around and wrestle a bit (or whatever it is tigers do when they're not really trying to hurt each other).

You Can Always Tell When It's October at the San Diego Zoo

There are three really noticeable things that happen at the San Diego Zoo during the month of October - really nice light because of the position of the sun in the sky; lots of kids, since October is "Kids Free Month"; and of course, pumpkins.  Lots of pumpkins.  All the animals get pumpkins to eat or play with, or both.

Cinta, Berani and Connor weren't the only ones to get pumpkins, even their little probably-not-so-distant-relative the Fishing Cat got one.

Malayan Tigers - San Diego Zoo

October is one of my favorite months at the San Diego Zoo; the position of the sun this time of year makes for some really interesting light on the Tigers.  Here are a few pictures of Cinta and Berani, Malayan Tigers at the San Diego Zoo.
