Christmas Day With The Tigers

I spent a few hours on Christmas morning hanging out with Connor, Cinta, and Berani, the Malayan Tigers at the San Diego Zoo.

On my way there I came upon a choice . . . but it was not so tough a choice it turns out.

Cinta found a gourd decorated for the holidays, and promptly decided to play with it.  This should serve as a warning for anyone who leaves holiday decorations out in the yard . . . you never know when the neighborhood cat is going to show up.

Later in the morning the keeper threw a couple more decorated gourds over the rail and into the pond.  Cinta and Berani went charging in after them.

It seems I got a lot more pictures of Cinta than I did of Berani, but in one of the pictures I did get of Berani he looks positively crazed.  I'm sure it's just the way the light is hitting him . . . and the way his eyes are.
