Shot Notes

This is an eight year old Bengal Tiger called Mika. She was born at Mogo Zoo in New South Wales and was the runt of the litter. She now lives with her brother and sister at Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. Although keeping large carnivores in captivity is a little controversial, these animals look healthy and the handlers appear to put a lot of effort into keeping them physically and mentally stimulated. Such is their dedication that three handlers have been hospitalized in less than a year after curious tigers attempted human tasting.
