Malayan Tiger Cubs at the San Diego Zoo

I met a few friends from our local photo club at the San Diego Zoo on Sunday morning. Our main goal was to get some shots of the tiger cubs. We saw lots of other great things as well, including the hippos (both regular and pygmy), pandas, gorillas and mandrills - check out the earlier posts just below this one. Here are a few images of Christopher and Connor, who are now about 4 months old, chasing each other around mostly, and basically just acting like a couple of big kitties. They would alternate between chasing around and lounging in the shade. 

The temporary fence designed to keep them from getting too close to the cliff edge seems to be doing its job . . . yeah, right. Maybe it's time to take it down.

After a while they get tired and decide it's time for a break.

We had a nice time on Sunday . . . good pictures and some great company to walk around the Zoo with.

    You did great at the zoo! Your post here made me laugh and I don't think you read too much into the interaction between mom and cub. ;)
