From the same visit to Australia Zoo (other posts on Australia Zoo are here: http://lightswimming.com/tag/australia-zoo/) – I bring you Kaitlyn – 85 kilograms of power and athleticism.
Sumatran Tigers are the smallest of the tiger sub-species and she is fully grown at 4.5 years old. They are critically endangered so any chance to see them, even in zoos, is pretty special.
In this picture she is at least 4 to 5 metres up that tree, in pursuit of a favourite ‘toy’.
You will have to forgive the slight reflections in some of these pictures – their enclosure is behind glass – I did my best to manage the sun and reflection.
