Tibor - Still Got It by Shadow-and-Flame-86 Tibor - Still Got It by Shadow-and-Flame-86
Even with one eye gone, Tibor is still a beautiful tiger =)

He's recovering well, and has even started climbing trees again this week!

Male sumatran tiger, edinburgh zoo

**ABOUT THE WATERMARK** yes its quite large and obtrusive but this shot is my most stolen and used illeagally shot, its even been stolen and used for commercial purposes without my consent TWICE >.< so yeah, hopefully the watermark will help put a stop to that. Sorry if it detracts from your enjoyment =(

Thank you very much! Yeah I have no idea why some people steal artwork, but I know why this guy did, because he was too cheap to pay for an image properly for his album cover! Oh well hopefully he has stopped using it now.

Tibor! Never expected to find a picture of him on DA. It's a fantastic shot of him, too - good composition, and you really captured his colours. Man, I need to get a better camera...

he injured it badly in the zoo he was born in (in germany I think) and came to Ed. zoo like that (see older photos of him like this: [link]). Last year he lost the sight in it and it was swelling and causing pain so they removed it. He's doing fine now, he's even just got his first mate!

I much prefer wildlife photography to zoo but find I don't get alot of time to do wildlife... so I try to make my zoo shots very natural looking :aww:

You are welcome, I might give the zoo a try sometime, I remember there used to be a Siberian tiger at Blair Drummond, wonder if it's still there ?

Shadow-and-Flame-86 Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
There are still siberian tigers at blair drummond (although they call them 'amur' tigers, which is becomming a more popular name for them for some reason...)

I've wanted to get up to that zoo for some time, but edinburgh is closer to me and I get in for free! Plus its hard to take photos while driving...

Thanks for that, it's years since I've been to Blair Drummond but I'm going to add to the growing list of places to visit before before long, if you don't mind I'll add you as a watch and let you see the results if I get round to it :)

I thought he was winking at first ><

Was it a disease or a wound?
Whatever it was, he still got it

It was a wound he obtained at the zoo he was born in (in germany I think). The injury had been getting progressivly worse over the years until he became blind in that eye and the pressure inside the socket was causing him pain, so the eye was removed. He's recovering well though =)
