Aus diesem Tag war der Amurtiger sehr aktiv; er ist durch seines Gehege geschritten. Er hat gegen dem Zaun gerieben. Wendi und ich haben ihm geredet, und er hat angehalten und uns geschaut. Er hat uns als eine größer Katze als Rose natürlich gescheinen, doch eine Katze ebenso.
On this day the Amur Tiger was very active; he paced through his enclosure. He rubbed against the fence. Wendi and I talked to him, and he stopped and looked at us. He seems to us like a bigger cat than Rose of course, but a cat all the same.

Of all the big cats, I think the Amur Tiger — also known as the Siberian Tiger — is one of the most beautiful. I find tigers fascinating as it is, but this big cat is just amazing. I’m not as dedicated as Sooyong Park, but I like to hang out by the tiger enclosure at the zoo.
More often than not, this big tiger is sleeping; tigers are — like most cats — nocturnal. But I think the cold of the day we were there helped him feel a bit more active. He seemed almost restless. Perhaps it was a feeding day; after two starve days, I would imagine he’d be anxious to eat.
I think I’ve been spotted…
I think I saw more big cats grooming this day than I ever had.
