Taken at the hamilton zoo, not much else to do today.
oh yea, i got my hair cut.

This is a Sumatran tiger named Jaka. they are the smallest of the tigers, the largest are the siberian tigers. These are an endangered species with only 400-500 still alive in the wild.

Hi Nathan

Welcome to TN... nice to see you here!

Jaka is just beautiful! I have a real passion for tigers and my gallery holds alot of Oz, the new Tiger at Auckland Zoo. Molek is now at the zoo too, but I haven't been fortunate enough to see her yet. Back to your shot... lovely work with sharp, clear details and nice exposure. :-)
