Tigers can swim...
Category: Spontaneous Moments

A tiger jumps into a pool of water to catch her prized piece of meat at the Odin's Temple of the Tiger, Six Flags. Much to the amazement of a houseful audience, this tiger made it amply clear that she can swim. Claws retract to make very effective and powerful paddles, ears fold down to keep water out and their excellent eyesight works perfectly even under water. I managed to get this shot when her jaw was stretched to the max, right before that piece of meat disappeared forever into her mouth. The whole thing happened so fast.
