Amur Tiger Linton Zoo

Amur Tigers were formally known as ‘Siberian’ but after they were hunted to extinction in the wild the captive Siberian Tigers were renamed Amur. There is only a plate glass window between us.

Linton Zoo is only 3 miles down the road from me and it took me 13 years to visit it. To my amazement it is part of an international breeding scheme for endangered species to keep the gene pool healthy for captive animals.
Holds - amur tigers, lions, black panther, snow leopard, leopard, tapir, zebra, African porcupine, toucan........

Don’t worry, I wasn't being catty. My side we are labeled carrot muchers from swappyland.

It's some years since I visited Linton Zoo.
Its good to know they're still working hard to help endangered species.
Interesting photo.

I sponsor a Siberian female tiger monthly-they need all the help they can get!
He is so gorgeous!
