I love cats! And the wild ones!

Looking in the eyes of a tiger, I love these creatures of nature. Such a grace, such a strength and such a beauty.

Siberian Tiger in Zoo Amersfoort

I feel sorry for them living in a zoo, I would love to see them in their own environment.
But to be honest, when they weren't in a zoo I would have seen them only in photos and in film. As the zoo claims we are making people aware of the diversity of wildlife and the importance of the support of wildlife especially for endangered animals. I can agree with that but it doesn't make me feel less sorry for the ones living in a zoo.

But when we have a look at the white tiger, this one has no chance of surviving in nature because he or she shines out in the jungle. A white tiger is a pigmentation variant of the Bengal tiger and in nature very rare. When you search the internet about it, you can read about some other sad news about the breeding with this unique tiger. Maybe the zoos should only adopt them when they are found in nature and not breed with them? I don't know the details so if anyone is well informed, let me know and we can share what is the truth about white tigers!

Tigers are an inspiration for fashion an art. Kenzo has its own line with its well known tiger print and many designers have used animal prints. And not only in clothing, also in bags, shoes, sheets, chairs and more. Just put tiger print in your search engine and see how many variations there are!

During my visit at Dierenpark Amersfoort I had the pleasure of seeing these powerful wild predators. Because of the glass fence, you can really get close to them.
