As I was walking through an area in the Toronto Zoo that I normally don’t go to, I spotted an African Barbary Sheep (Ammotragus lervia) apparently just gave birth in the past little while.

Big and not so big cats

Actually it’s two different kind of big cats. Sumatran Tiger and Siberian Tiger.

Now first is the smaller of the two, Sumatran Tigers. This male Sumatran tiger named Rengat is the mate of the female tiger called Brytne. He enjoy staying in the warmth of their den and just simply being camera shy. The Toronto Zoo is hoping for some tiger cubs between these two lovely pair soon.
