There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. 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.

I recently went to the Toronto zoo, saw an amazing variety of animals, including a massive Grizzly.

Here are the pictures.

Female Sumatran Tiger. Was much smaller than the female bengals from I saw in Indian zoos. Taken from behind a fence.

Pardon the out of focus fence in the front. Couldn't do anything about it.

My favorite part. Adult male Grizzly. Was absolutely massive. If these are you average Grizzlies, I can only image what those Kodiak monsters look like.

Yes, the inland grizzly bears of Alaska are generally larger than those from south of the Canadian border, with the exception of the Yukon area. *I would love to see them.

How did the rhinos compare? I got to feed a male one horned rhino and the guy was as large as my truck, so I know they're massive.

I think the Alaskan peninsula grizzlies were even larger than the Kodiak bears.

357 kg vs 312 kg based on the average.

They looked about the same size to me. The white rhino was a tad longer, the Indian was a bit taller.

Thanks for the kind words, Sanjay. I use the Nikon D7000 camera body. It is the best camera in its price range, imo, especially for low light photography. The D7200 is now the latest iteration, and is supposed to be better than the 7000.
