Gentle Giant by Dyrk Daniels – The story of the gentle Bengal Tiger with the little girl at the zoo (and more pictures of the moment). | Oct. 2011
Photographer Dyrk Daniels said, ''The big cat bowed his head and placed his huge right paw exactly in front where the little girl's left hand was. He, then, lets down the paw and rubbed his cheek against the glass."
Dyrk Daniels saw a Golden Bengal Tiger had taken an interest in a baby leaning against his enclosure. As the tiger, Taj, came over, he got his camera. 'I couldn't believe it when Taj bowed his head and placed his paw where the little girl’s hand was. Then he put his paw down, rubbed his cheek against the glass where her face was and left. The little girl was so excited she started clapping.

"Tender moment: Rather than banging against the glass, the tiger gently put its paw up to the little girl's hand" ~ "…amazingly the tiger hung his head, stretched a paw out to her hand and rubbed his cheek against where the girl's face was.

This is the remarkable moment when a tiger bowed its head and placed a paw up to the hand of a small girl. Photographer Dyrk Daniels noticed the 370lb Golden Bengal Tiger had taken an interest in the child, who was leaning against his glass enclosure. As the tiger, called Taj, headed over to her, Mr Daniels got his camera ready, expecting him to snarl and bang against the glass. ‘I noticed that Taj had taken an interest in the girl and was heading towards her. ‘I thought for certain that the little girl would need therapy after the encounter and fear cats for the rest of her life. ‘I could not believe my eyes when Taj approached the girl, bowed his head and then placed his huge right paw exactly in front of where the little girl’s left hand was. ‘It was incredible to watch. Taj let down his right paw, rubbed his cheek against the glass where the little girl’s face was and moved off.’ Far from being scared, the little girl was so excited that she started clapping as she walked back afterwards towards her mother. ‘I have never seen such tenderness from such a large predator,’ Mr Daniels said. -- This is what my adopted cat, Rascal, did when I first saw him in a pet store...a trip I did not want to make and was not expecting to buy anything, much less adopt a pet. However, I think we were meant to be =)
This is just up the road from my house!! These breathtaking photographs capture the remarkable moments when a tiger bowed its head and placed a paw up to the hand of a small girl. Photographer Dyrk Daniels noticed the 370lb Golden Bengal Tiger had taken an interest in the child, who was leaning against his glass enclosure. As the tiger, called Taj, headed over to her, Mr Daniels got his camera ready, expecting him to snarl and bang against the glass. But amazingly the tiger hung his head, stretched a paw out to her hand and rubbed his cheek against where the girl's face was. Father-of-two Dyrk Daniels, 47, from Washington, America, went to Cougar Mountain Zoo to photograph the Bengal tigers. When he got to the enclosure there were several children and families in the area, so he decided to let them see the tigers first before he tried to photograph them himself. ‘That is when I noticed this little girl was leaning against the glass with both hands out stretched staring at the ‘big kitties’,’ he said. As the tiger headed over to the glass partition towards the little girl, photographer Dyrk Daniels thought the big cat would snarl and frighten her. The tiger put its face right down so the little girl could look it straight in the eye. ‘I noticed that Taj had taken an interest in the girl and was heading towards her. ‘I thought for certain that the little girl would need therapy after the encounter and fear cats for the rest of her life. ‘I could not believe my eyes when Taj approached the girl, bowed his head and then placed his huge right paw exactly in front of where the little girl's left hand was. ‘It was incredible to watch. Taj let down his right paw, rubbed his cheek against the glass where the little girl's face was and moved off.’ Far from being scared, the little girl was so excited that she started clapping as she walked back afterwards towards her mother. ‘I have never seen such tenderness from such a large predator,’ Mr Daniels said.

This is wonderful and all.... but, it is always a possibility that something can change, and it's usually spontaneous, unexpected and can be a serious problem for both the human and the animal! But this is so wonderful to see, don't get me wrong!! South African Kevin Richardson -- The Lion Whisperer.

Kevin Richardson: The Lion Whisperer He grew from a young boy who cared for so many animals that he was called “The Bird Man of Orange Grove” to an adolescent who ran wild &, finally, to a man who is able to cross the divide between humans & predators. As a self-taught animal behaviorist, Richardson has broken every safety rule known when working with these wild animals. Flouting common misconceptions that breaking an animal’s spirit with sticks and chains is the best way to subdue them.

Lion hugs and kisses. Amazing #animals

Snow tiger. Big Paws.
A mother tiger lost her cubs due to premature labour. Shortly after, she became depressed and her health declined. She was later diagnosed with depression. Since tigers are endangered, every effort was made to secure her health. Zoologists wrapped piglets up in tiger-print cloth, and presented them to the mother tiger. She now loves these piglets and treats them like her own. And needless to mention, her health is back on track.

The story behind this picture is really cute. So a mother tiger lost all her babies and she was refusing to eat. So the zookeepers wrapped up baby pigs in tiger skin and she treated them as her lost cubs.
The tiger mom went through depression after her cubs were taken away. She was given baby pigs to cope :)

The Lion (Panthera leo) is one of the four big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. Lion males exceed 250 kg (550 lb) in weight, making them the 2nd largest living cat after the tiger. Wild lions live in sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia while other types of lions have disappeared from North Africa and Southwest Asia in historic times. Until the late Pleistocene, about 10,000 years ago, the lion was the most widespread large land mammal after humans. Cubs, baby, cub
Lions- love is primal instinct
