Tigers washing each other at Singapore Zoo. I love that there are no bars between humans and big cats in Singapore, just large canyons and a reminder of how far tigers can leap in a single bound.

There are only around 200 of the white tigers left in the world. White tigers are an Asian species, found from the frozen tundra of the Soviet Far East, south to the humid jungles of Malaya and Indonesia, and west to the hot, hardwood forests of India. There are five living subspecies; three others are already extinct. Current estimates put the world population of wild tigers at about 5,000-7,000, the most numerous race being the Bengal race, distributed among some 18 tiger reserves and sanctuaries of India (and a half-dozen in Nepal and Bangladesh), accounting for over two-thirds of all wild tigers.

Tigers are a protected species all over the world. Even though it’s completely illegal to hunt them, people are still slaying these beautiful creatures.

    Amazing capture and no bars!!!
  • Thankyou!

    They do not have bars around the tigers at Singapore Zoo which is awesome… it is pretty much a bar-less zoo on the whole, which is great from a photography point, but also much nicer for the animals, I should imagine :-D

    Thanks for the comment and favouriting :-D

    Lovely shoot! well capture!

  • Hehe, thankyou. I got this just before I lost some things and started getting more stressed… next time I want to understand my camera enough to make it to the night safari.. while I have been to SG many times and the zoo every time, I have not yet made it to the night safari.

    Am practising a lot with my camera and when I KNOW that I can use it, I shall be there at the night safari :-P Join me if you like! :-D
