Darshan is the poster boy for Wildlife Companions. A known hothead during his time at Tiger Island, at our facility he's learned that he has no responsibilities other than to be himself and enjoy the expanse of his open run and enclosure. While still the sort of fellow that will crouch behind a fence post and "stalk" you, these days he's mostly just a curious playful goofball.
We've even caught him chasing his tail. Don't tell him we told you.
Taji is our big marshmallow. As you can see, he's expressing the white gene that he inherited from both parents. You might infer from the picture that he is a big lazy cat. And you would be right.
April and Star
These two half sisters share an enclosure and a large run. Most of the time April (left), "the pretty one," rules the roost, but come feeding time, Star is definitely large and in charge. Or at least, hungry and in charge.
The elder statesman (statestiger?) of our cat community, Sahara keeps an eye on the other tigers and makes sure they don't get up to too many shenanigans. She is notorious for giving Darshan a hard time about playing his music too loud.
"Can't make lunch today, I'm with the tigers," I said.
"Pics or it didn't happen," my boss said.
"Darshan, could you give me a good picture?" I asked.
