The suggester wrote: "Honestly, generally as a rule of thumb most captured wildlife shots 'look' like captured wildlife shots, this one however, looks anything but! Perfect lighting and detail to boot, showing a wonderful sense of emotion in the Tigers eyes...makes this one worthy of Daily Deviation status!"

Tibor the Tiger



Tibor the Sumatran Tiger at Edinburgh zoo.

Tibor sadly has recently had to have his injured right eye removed. He had lost all sight in it and had developed an infection, and so the vet thought it best to remove it. He still has good sight in his remaining eye and is expected to make a full recovery =)

Tibor a week after his operation in July 2010:

Funny how such a majestic creature can look downright cute and amusing when seen in just the riht moment. Sad to read of the fate of his eye - tigers are sight-oriented predators, as I recall - but at least he'll recover.
