More Wilhelma Zoo pictures - the 20 year old Sumatran tigress doing the rug thing

Hi guys and gals,

here is another contribution to my "sweetest tiger rug ever" series.
Starring is a Sumatran tigress living in Wilhelma Zoo - this old lady
enjoying the sun is no less than 20 years old! Lots of tigers as well as
other critters still to come - I have many more waiting to be scanned
and posted but I hardly have time to do more than two or three scans a
day. A little patience is required but all the ones that are fit to be
shown here will eventually be done so. Just stay tuned and you'll get
them all.

Greetings from Geesthacht -

Ralf

Sumatran Tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is found only on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The wild population is estimated at between 400 and 500 animals, occurring predominantly in the island's national parks. Recent genetic testing has revealed the presence of unique genetic markers, indicating that it may develop into a separate species, if it is not made extinct. This has led to suggestions that the Sumatran Tiger should have greater priority for conservation than any other subspecies. Habitat destruction is the main threat to the existing tiger population (logging continues even in the supposedly protected national parks), but 66 tigers were recorded as being shot and killed between 1998 and 2000???nearly 20% of the total population.
