Bengal Tiger



DSC00432

We tagged along on one of Chris’ business trips to Singapore when Josh was 14 months old. Of course, when one is in Singapore with a little child, the Singapore Zoo is a must-visit.

This Bengal tiger is one of its many attractions. I’d always found tigers to be magnificent creatures, but this white tiger just took my breath away.

From the Singapore Zoo website: “White tigers, also known as Bengal tigers, are rare animals that possess an amazing combination of awesome beauty and impressive power. They have blue eyes, a pink nose, and creamy white fur covered with brown stripes.”

(I just realized that my post for last week’s Wordless (or not-so-wordless) Wednesday was Zebras and Leopards. It’s totally just a coincidence that I’m doing my WW post about the white tiger this week.)

For more WW fun, please visit 7 Clown Circus and 5 Minutes for Mom.

That's a beautiful shot of a beautiful animal. What is it about the white ones?

sheila said...

That is incredibly beautiful! Nice shot!! Is this the zoo that raised the tigers from cubs and they still go in the pen to play with them? I saw that on NatGeo. Beautiful shot!

So majestic. I do love tigers. It's a shame that they never seem to be out when we visit our zoo.

Oh how beautiful! I've been to Singapore years ago (had friends that lived there) but never made it to the zoo. I loved that city though....we even took the boat over to Indonesia for a few days. That was an amazing trip......oh and the Raffles hotel! Great times.
