Penitas Texas

Tiger introductions have begun wonderfully. Lots of smelling, chuffing, growling and bouncing around. It's fascinating to watch the different interactions between different individuals.

Many thanks to Lincoln Park Zoo curator emeritus Mark Rosenthal for sharing this neat rendition of my three year old and myself. She is a very special animal and I am glad he caught this special moment, immediately following her success in learning the beginning steps of a new behavior.

New additions

As we head into our final week of winter quarters, I would like to introduce the two newest members of Holder's Tigers, Diego and Zeus ! These two boys are now six months old and growing fast. Lots of photos and videos will be shared during the upcoming season of their integration with the group and their training.

The girls had a fun day today ! After their normal diet, we cut up some fresh veal graciously donated for the tigers, along with with three more huge tractor tires we will add to the compounds next winter.
