Photos capturing the moments when a tiger bowed its head and placed a paw up to the hand of a small girl. Photographer Dyrk Daniels noticed the 370lb Golden Bengal Tiger had taken an interest in the child, who was leaning against his glass enclosure. As the tiger, Taj, headed over to her Mr Daniels got his camera ready. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2055257/Easy-tiger-Remarkable-moment-baby-holds-hand-Bengal-tigers-paw-dont-worry-theyre-separated-glass.html#axzz2JyG36wz2
A beautiful Bengal Tiger. So very few left. There are more in captivity in the US alone than exist in the wild. Unfortunately most cannot be used for breeding because their parentage is not known. Many privately owned tigers interbreed with others not of the same subspecies, which leaves the DNA a muddle.
