V is for Valentino

One of the most beautiful and friendly of the full grown tigers here is Valentino. He is massive!

He follows you around his enclosure wanting lots of attention which makes him very hard to photograph cause he’s so close to the wire most of the time.

I was taking a few pics of a tiger in the next enclosure and he got very vocal all of a sudden and stopped as soon as I returned to say hi and take more pics.

He’s got a lot more white in his coat than the other tigers.

He seems so sweat and friendly but I’m sure he’d kill us without even a blink of an eyelid if we were on the other side of the fence. When he stands he comes half way up my my ribcage – at a guess would say he’s about 1.2m tall.
