    Eye the tiger or else it could be you that’s for dinner. 

    This curious Bengal tiger is enjoying a swim and is twisting its ears towards the source of its interest.  This tiger is cooling off on a hot summer evening by immersing himself completely, leaving only his head and back visible. Most tigers back into the water as they do not like splashing water into their eyes.

    We need to keep our eyes on the endangered dwindling tiger population as we stand in danger of losing this majestic animal.  Its habitat continues to shrink due to expanding human populations and poaching increases.  Many cultures consider the tiger to be a symbol of strength and courage.
