Wild Geoffroy’s Cat - Leopardus geoffroyi - Gato De Mato at Siberia, Bolivia (by Paul B Jones)
習性 ～ Habit .2
This tiger just showed up on my dash… Is it just me or is this animal incredibly thin?
He’s lean, definitely not thin. A thin tiger will show many more bones(spine, ribs, hip bones). A good indicator of this cat’s healthy weight is in those beefy legs and full face!
According to the photographer this was taken in Katraj Zoo in India, which makes this their 5-year old male, Tanaji.
Here’s another photo of Tanaji from a different angle and another of him lying down. I’m guessing it’s just the angle of the first photo that makes him look thinner then he really is.
However, while Tanaji seems okay, a quick google search of the zoo brings up a lot of issues with welfare, including a pair of elephants left to starve. They also have a white tiger, although I don’t know if they’re breeding them or not.
