Zoo animal photo clean up

Just a clean up of a bunch of animals that I have taken at the zoo for the past 6 months or so but never got posted.

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.

These are Arctic Wolfs, distinguished from the Gray Wolf by their year round white coat and shorter snort and ears.
