Tiger Tiger

Everybody wants to pass as cats
We all want to be big big stars, but we got different
reasons for that….

More from Magic Natura down by the tigers.
Cats like to sleep so when you go to see these then that’s what they’re doing, unless they’re being fed. Half past one and the cats come alive waiting for their lunch and showing a decent turn of speed and some impressive swimming skills in the chase for the food. If one of these comes after you don’t think jumping in a nearby puddle is gonna stop them. Unlike most house moggies water is their friend.


Cat fact 1: Claws are can grow up to 4 inches so that’s gonna leave more than a wee red scratch from little Puddles back home.


Cat fact 2: They can jump up to ten meters the world record long jump is short of 9 so get working on that.


Cat fact 3: Padded feet means the stalk silently that makes for a better “Oh sh*t!” moment.


Cat fact 4: They’re the worst cat climbers good at going up rubbish at going down. You might want to incorporate tree climbing into your escape plans.


Cat fact 5: They have fewer teeth than dogs so shouldn’t hurt so much when they bite you.


Cat fact 6: They have the largest canines of the cat family and have special skills such as pressure sensing so they know where to sever the neck of their prey. Ignore fact 5 if it bites you’ll feel it.


Cat fact 7: White spots on the back of the ears, just fake eyeballs.

Cat fact 8: The markings on the top of a tiger head resembles the Chinese character “Wang” which means “King”


Could have spent hours photographing these beautiful cats turned out I was lucky to get any with a dodgy SD card refusing to work on our first visit and a dying battery on our final visit.


The Stalking Tiger


Fuengirola Bioparc and the tiger enclosure. This photo looked pretty good on the back of the camera, unfortunately the full screen version was a bit dull and colourless through the glass of the enclosure. I’ve gave it a wee tweak and a run through the old Nik Collection to try and bring the colours out a bit more.

Would have been good to see it running straight at the glass but it clearly wasn’t in the mood for performance on that day.
Oh and a monkey too.

Going through the old files and having a play around with some shots from our trip to Fuengirola at the start of this year. The Biopark is without a doubt the finest zoo I’ve ever been in.
More to follow in this post as I edit and upload.

Photograph below is by wee mini Blogger Photography Kai my number one daughter.
This little lemur was mesmerized by it’s reflection in her sunglasses and stood staring into her eyes for what seemed like ages. It would have made a cracking photo of the both of them looking at each other but unfortunately I was too slow and it leaped over her head and off to join his buddies.
