Menacing Cat

I thought that these 3 shots deserved their own post. This is Nindiri, the female Jaguar at the San Diego Zoo who became the mother of 2 cubs back in late April of this year. You can sort of see one of her cubs in the background blur of the third shot in this series, and of course, there are lots of shots of them in earlier posts on this blog.

I'm not sure just what she's thinking here, but I'm glad there is a sturdy fence between us.

These were taken tonight at the San Diego Zoo.

  1. I'm not sure exactly what she is thinking either but like you I am glad you have a barrier between you! She may be thinking, "hey, this dude looks like a tasty snack"...or something of the sort. She does look hungry. ;-)
