(Second in a series)
I love the Bronx Zoo. Granted, this is only the second time I've ever been there. But I've loved it my whole life.
I went in search of snow leopards...But instead I got tigers, sandcats, leopard cats and red pandas (oh, my)...


We think this is Sasha, the tiger...she lives in Tiger Mountain. She was the only tiger we saw, but she was enough...


















The sandcats are one of the smallest wild cats. These two sisters live in the World of Darkness...and they never stopped moving while we were there.










I also got a decent shot of the Leopard Cat in the World of Darkness...


And while I didn't get a shot of a snow leopard on this trip, I did get their neighbours, the red pandas:

The ones where she's walking towards the right, with her ears back...totally remind me of Patrick.

Big or small, they're all the same.

HOLY CRAP!!!!!! Those are the cutest things i've ever seen! I've never seen a picture of a red panda before, holy cow.
I want to take the sand cats home!
__Birdie__ and I are trying to plan a trip to NYC this summer, we're going to a couple of red sox games and then I'll be going back with her to CT, and we want to try to make a mets game. I'm saving your entries for other ideas!

That's a leopard cat in your icon!

The snow leopards are awesome too...they were just uncooperative last Saturday. The sand cats are tiny. They're smaller than even Tessie (who is now smaller than Kylie).

Red pandas are the missing link between pandas and raccoons.

tessie's smaller than kylie now? wow.
I was thinking the exact same thing about the red pandas, how much they look like raccoons! Cute but very freak like. :) i love them.

Yeah. She's taller and longer; they weigh about the same.
I've been trying to get a photo that really shows it, but you can kind of see it in this one I took last month:

The tiger just reminds me of Patrick so much...

If you look closely at the middle panda, you can see his tongue sticking out.

Sand cats so cute!

The tiger pics are an excellent demonstration thwarted camoflauge. Tigers stand out *beautifully* against the snow! Pretty!

And these are Siberian tigers...you think they'd blend in at least a little...

Hey maybe that's why I didn't see any snow leopards!

The sand cats are so tiny! But the face definitely reminds me of Tessie.

You want snow leopards?

I have some photos you can see here:

http://petardier.livejournal.com/tag/big+cats

They're mixed in with photos of a lynx and some jaguars though.

P.S. Nice tiger photos.
