Sumatran Tigers

Tonight I will share a few pictures of Sumatran tigers (Panthera tigris sumatrae).

Not really sure how my mind wandered to tigers tonight, but it did.

Taronga Zoo - Sumatran Tiger - Panthera tigris sumatrae - Zoo - Tigers This first tiger is chilling out at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia.

The Taronga Zoo is one of my favorite zoos and I might visit it again next month. I would like to get some more nice pictures. The last time I was there I was able to get some amazing pictures. Some of my favorite Taronga Zoo pictures can be seen in Taronga Zoo Birds and Perfect Timing.

Taronga Zoo is also a Zoo with a View and I can get some great shots of downtown Sydney again.

I took this picture at the Toronto Zoo. I really like the look this tiger is giving me.

Sumatran Tiger - Panthera tigris sumatrae - Toronto Zoo - Tigers - Tiger Closeup - Tiger Eye How about a little closer look at the tiger. I don’t think I would want to be this close to the tiger without a fence in between.

Maybe it is all the football and basketball I have been watching that is making me think of tigers. Two of my favorite college teams have tigers as mascots. Go Missouri! Go Pacific!

I think that I like the first tiger best, what do you think?

    All tigers are gorgeous. The first photo shows the regal side and the second the more distracted animal. But the eye! 8)

  2. They are all wonderful, Steven, I am most envious! One does not often come that close to such amazing creatures.
