This lovely boy is fast asleep and the heaviness of his head on the rock indicates he is totally relaxed. I have been lucky enough to see tigers in the wild in India - mostly in Kahna National Park in Madhya Pradesh. Nothing can describe the spine tingling emotion you feel when this magnificent animal steps silently out from the trees, gives you a cursory glance and continues walking on his way, going about his daily life. I have been blessed to have had this experience.
He is matched with Snooze Control, a Sri Lankan Leopard if you want a pair of these lovely cats!
