Amur TIger

Napping in the sun in January, this huge cat ignored me until he was ready to leave this spot, when he suddenly turned and swiped at the glass before loping off to visit his kin. I don't tend to believe much in interspecies communication, certainly not between humans and wild animals, and I am not prepared to say that it was all in play. I respect these cats a lot and am glad for every shred of wild instinct they retain. These Amurs belong to a critically endangered species.
