Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Stay Wild
Beautiful Indira the tiger being weighed as part of her routine care
*This image is copyright of its original author
☺️. She was 134kg which is a good weight for her! Sumatran tigers weigh much less with males averaging 120kg and females 90kg, they are the smallest of all the tiger sub-species. Indira here is not a Sumatran tiger, she is possibly a Bengal mix but we don't know her full breeding background. She is stunning none the less

Tigers placed on post-winter diet

Two Siberian tigers chase an aerial photography drone in Harbin, Heilongjiang province, in February.

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2017-03/03/content_28418077.htm


The Siberian Tiger Park in Harbin, Northeast China's Heilongjiang province, is helping more than 300 Siberian tigers to lose weight by adding more exercise to their daily routine and cutting back on their food intake.

Photos of the tigers circulated online and received wide attention from netizens, who compared the endangered big cats to orange tabby cats such as comic-strip character Garfield.

Netizens questioned whether the captive tigers have been overfed by tourists at the park, the world's largest Siberian tiger breeding and field training center.

Liu Dan, chief engineer at the park, said the tigers' obesity is a seasonal phenomena.

"Some of tigers in the park look very chubby, but it has nothing to do with tourists feeding them. In fact, it is natural for these animals to devour more in order to adapt to acute weather conditions during the winter," he said.

The weight of a male Siberian tiger, normally about 250 kilograms, increases by about 10 percent in winter, Liu said, adding that food intake for the big cats increases by about 30 percent to 6 to 8 kg daily.

"When feeding them, we drop the food on the ground and let them fight for it. So some tigers get more food than others," Liu said. "The chubby tigers in the photos are less than 2 years old, so their rolls of fat are just like a child with baby fat."

Liu added that with spring approaching, the park is cutting food supply to make sure the tigers are healthy during the mating season.

"In addition, we guide them to do more exercise when dropping their food," he said.

On Feb 23, tigers at the park were recorded chasing an exercise drone, with one tiger leaping into the air and striking the drone.

Siberian tigers were once found throughout the Russian Far East, northern China and the Korean Peninsula. By the 1940s, hunting had driven the tiger to the brink of extinction - with no more than 40 individuals remaining in the wild.

According to WWF, there are about 540 wild tigers around the world. From 2012 to 2014, at least 27 wild Siberian tigers were spotted in Northeast China.

Odense Zoo 

The 2010 report mentions‘Igor' weight 300kg(about seven years old).
However, according to the 2013 report, 'Igor' weight 250kg(almost 11 years old), I think that in addition to the reasons for aging,Another reason is be because the canine teeth damage, affecting the normal eating.

TWO LIONS, NO WAITING AT ZOO

IT is not every day you come face-to-face with the king of the jungle, so when the opportunity to meet three of them came up I jumped at the chance.


The visit, part of Perth Zoo’s Eye-to-Eye encounters, allows visitors to get a behind the scenes look at various animal enclosures including the African Savannah, which is home to African lion brothers Nelson and Mandela and lioness Shinyanga.

Nelson and Mandela, who arrived at the zoo in 2007 and weigh
in at a healthy 187kg and 177kg respectively, share their enclosure with 15-yearold Shinyanga, who weighs 128kg.

Kwame, a 9-year-old, 410-pound male lion at Zoo Miami was immobilized on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, and brought to the zoo's hospital to receive a root canal on a lower left canine tooth as well as a pedicure. In addition, a small mole was discovered and removed by Zoo Chief Veterinarian Dr. Gwen Myers to be examined for the presence of skin cancer.
