. Bug. I'm loving the fact that I've changed a few peoples opinions about rats with my photos of Bug. Rats are such lovely animals, they're so misunderstood. I have had three rats all in all, and each one has been totally different. Bug thinks she's human
Dyrk Daniels went to Cougar Mountain Zoo in Issaquah, Washington State, to photograph the Bengal tigers and noticed a 370lb Bengal had taken an interest in the child, who was leaning against his glass enclosure. As the tiger, called Taj, headed over to her, Mr Daniels got his camera ready, expecting him to snarl and bang against the glass. But amazingly the tiger hung his head, stretched a paw out to her hand and rubbed his cheek against where the girl's face was
From Yahoo News: Thank goodness for the glass! This amazing moment of a little girl playing patty cake with a Bengal tiger was caught on camera at the Cougar Mountain Zoo in Issaquah, Washington State.
Photographer Dyrk Daniels says: "I noticed this little girl was leaning against the glass with both hands out stretched staring at the 'big kitties'. I could not believe my eyes when Taj approached the girl, bowed his head and then placed his huge right paw exactly in front of where the little girl's left hand was. It was incredible to watch. Taj let down his right paw, rubbed his cheek against the glass." by twila
