Sumatra: Tigers are back

(Sunday, January 31st, 2010)

Thanks to the WWF and one trap camera, we now know that tigers are still present in Sumatra. It was a place where you could find many of them, but at least there are a female and her three cubs. They will soon have to find their own territory and then the hard time will be back.

Remember: There are only 3000-4000 tigers live in the wild… in the world.

Cheetah’s TwitPics

(Wednesday, January 27th, 2010)

While randomly browsing old links from my bookmarks library, I found some that led me to a place I recommend to all cheetah lovers. The Cincinnati Zoo has a TwitPic account (CheetahDays) to presenter a daily photo of the zoo’s big cats. A large amount of cheetahs as you would expect, but you will also find a serval in a kitchen, an ocelot in a bath tub, some lions, …

No free wild animals, but some nice pictures.

Lions from Nathan Myhrvold

(Friday, January 22nd, 2010)

Nathan Myhrvold may not be an exceptional photographer (after all, he is not known and famous for that, but he succeeded anyway), but his photo essay is a good illustrated summary of the atmosphere of an African photo safari.

Some tourists are negligent, aren’t they?

(Tuesday, January 12th, 2010)

The question must be asked. Seriously. When you look at the following picture of tourists having total fun in seeing a full grown lion rushing to their car’s hood all teethes out.

But reality is slightly simpler: These tourists do not take the slightest risk. They are merely visitors to the Werribee Open Range Zoo, in Melbourne, Australia. There, a nicely prepared presentation allows to feel the thrill of being an African prey in all security behind a thick glass window (cutting in two halves the car model).

The man who could convince a lion to swim

(Tuesday, January 5th, 2010)

Lions (like many cats) do not like water. Kevin Richardson established such a confidence relationship with these lions that he could convince them to go and swim with him.
