Satu and stars by woxys Satu and stars by woxys
Satu, female Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae, tygr sumatersky) from ZOO Brno, Czech republic :aww:


I have a personal rule to post only one photo a day, but because my last submission was very crappy ([link]), I post also shot I am proud of today :D it is Satu, wonderful female in the water. I have never seen her in her pool before! I was also surprosed to find few fish in her tank - but I do not think she will ever try to catch them :D but it would be amazing sight! The tank is very big and quite deep, so I fish have a good chance to survive every fisnihing attempt of Satu or Dua ;) I am so happy that I captured this moment! :aww:


Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:
____________


INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae)
Location: Sumatra
Size: 1,8 m long body + 0,8 m tail, 0,9 m high weight: 180 kg
Diet: deers, boars, elks, birds, tapirs
Conservation status: Critically Endangered
Interesting facts: Sumatran tigers do not live in groups. Every tiger has its own territory and cats meet only to mate. Only female then take care of 2-4 kittens. Father does not look after his babies. Other males can kill the cubs, so mother must be very careful and she looks for her cubs until they are 2 years old | Sumatran tiger is the smallestt of all tiger subspecies | there are only some 400 - 600 Sumatran tigers living in the wild | Sumatran tigers swim very well and fast | they are threatened by hunters who kill them for their amazing wonderful fur

this is a totally different kind of beauty, those eyes look scary precise and more fitting to a machine than a creature. not an animal to mess with, admire at a distance- great shot.
