WHITE TIGER SWIMMING
.
These incredible photos of a White Bengal Tiger named Odin.

Odin is six years old and 10 feet long from tail to nose.

Odin lives at a Zoo in Vallejo, California, near San Francisco .

Odin with his British trainer Lee Munro.

Odin was hand-raised at the zoo. And after he was weaned,

his British trainer Lee Munro discovered his remarkable skill.

When a lump of meat was thrown into a pool of water, Odin

would happily dive in after it.

He makes a funny face - and its actually to close his nostrils

to stop the water from going into his nose.

Not all big cats enjoy the water but for Tigers from the hot

climate of South-East Asia its one way to cool down.

Plus they hunt in and around water. Theyre an ambush

predator so they wait for prey to come down to the water.

When you actually see him dive underwater he looks

so graceful,

Odin loves the water and he loves food, he said. Not

all big cats will dive and swim underwater even for meat treats.

Munro said tigers were the most powerful swimmers

out of all land-dwelling animals.

Tragically, within our lifetimes, zoos might be the

only places left to see these magnificent animals.

A century ago there were about 100,000 tigers in

the wild. Now there are just 2,500 adults, with the

Bengal variety almost extinct. None has been seen

in the wild since the last white tiger was shot and killed in 1958.

White tigers are the most rare. They get their whitecolor

from an unusual and extremely rare genetic combination.

Sorry, i didn't want to ruin your pictures.

He is lovely, i have a toy tiger which is quite large, it was bought for me in Germany in the early ninety's.

I will probably still have it, when i have my own children.

Except for tigers!! They do a lot of swimming in their natural habitats and seem to enjoy it. I saw a prog on the telly where tiger cubs were just swimming and jumping in for fun - like kids in a swimming pool.
Eating underwater is a bit skillful.
Great pics and huge teeth.:thumbsup:
