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


Newest photo ---------->


Story of the title: Satu is quite unlucky when it comes to males. Her first partner was much older Dick - but when he wanted to mate with her, they had a conflict (that's official version of the incident) and Dick broke his leg, dying soon after surgery. His brother Kampar came to replace him, but as he was quite old, he died soon. ZOO decided to connect Satu with experienced male Dustin, who stayed in ZOO Brno only few weeks before he retured to his home ZOO in Jihlava. Again, no babies came. So ZOO Brno got new tiger - this time young wonderful Dua. But Dua appeared to be too submissive - he did not mate with strong emancipated Satu, although she wanted to. So soon, Dua should leave the ZOO and new male from ZOO Lisboa will come. I hope Satu will become a mommy this time...

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

I think she needs pharmaceutical treatment. I think she can have a very strong anxiety, maybe low rate of progesterone, or serotonine, that's why so hard to approach. I think antidepressants would make her more calm and feminine.

I know from my cousin who is vet that you can use a variety of drugs on animals. I feel sorry for her, poor beautiful frustrated girl. And sorry for the guys, who potentially can be killed. She needs something sedative and mood regulating..........

Great shot of this tigress and what a history she had when it comes to males =D

If things form the Tiger from Lisboa zoo won't work out, then Rotterdam Zoo has 2 potential mates for her (Gio and Vanni who were born at
Rotterdam Zoo last year) once they are mature enough to mate
