Introducing Three Siberian Tiger Cubs Named: "Sayan" "Altai" & "Altay." Seen here with their Mom: "Nika." Howletts Wild Animal Park in Bekesbourne, England. The cubs are named after mountain ranges in Siberia.
This is the remarkable moment when a tiger bowed its head and placed a paw up to the hand of a small girl. Photographer Dyrk Daniels noticed the Golden Bengal Tiger had taken an interest in the child, who was leaning against his glass enclosure.
I love the strong emotions in this picture. Typically the lioness is the one in charge, the one who hunts and takes care of the babies but here she surrenders, gives up her power momentarily to engage to the lion's sweet play.
