Get that Fly!

By Lillian  
A Sumatran Tiger that will be annoyed if that fly lands!
Giving me ''that look'' I seem to of managed a few of those there at WHF in Kent!
he had just been in the wishing I could join hot!

Sumatran Tigers are on the RED LIST... critically Endangered...less than 200 now in the world
this and his brother were born 10th Aug 2011..are helping to get their breed back into the wild
with the program WHF has..the boys are called Kubu and Toba, a few of you will remember from our visit there last year.

Thank You to Steve, Cliff, Maureen and Ju for your User Awards on the Jaguar

A magnificent animal, so sad that they are in such dire straights. Sorry Lillian but I'm not convinced by the fly, it detracts from the wonderful eye contact you have captured, a hypnotic gaze indeed. Sad
