Cat Nap in Tiger Canyons by chrishpetersen

Look closely and you will see two tigers cat napping as they try to escape the summer heat in Tiger Canyons.

I strive to capture wildlife behavior. Unfortunately it was 40+C (100+F) and the behavior the tigers most preferred was sleeping through the heat of the day.

Tigers have never lived in Africa. Tiger Canyons is the only place with free ranging tigers living wild outside of India and Asia.

John Varty (JV) is a South African conservationist and filmmaker who specializes in Big Cats. He created Tiger Canyons in the Karoo of South Africa as an experiment to create a free-ranging, self-sustaining tiger population outside Asia. It is worth your time to read more: http://ift.tt/1JvT8z3
His vision is to educate others about tigers, and to be able to return future generations of tigers back to Asia.
