This is Odin
....he lives at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Odin is an 8 year old White Bengal Tiger who was hand raised, his trainer is Lee Munro. Odin is 10 feet long from nose to tail and he loves to swim; he is the star of the exhibit "Odin's Temple of the Tiger". Odin's mother was the first White Tiger born at the park.
I was so taken by this guy, he is so handsome and has such a personality. The face he is making here is actually keeping the water from going up his nose. A century ago there were about 100,000 tigers in the wild. Now there are just 2,500 adults, with the Bengal
variety almost extinct. None has been seen in the wild since the last white tiger was shot and killed in 1958.
Receiving a DD
for this shot means so much to me. I really wanted this photo to be as much about the message as the art. I have seen this as a reality today, so many people taking the time to leave comments, the majority of them showing concern for the existence of these tigers. I have a renewed faith in those around me. DA has proven once again to be a community of people that I am proud to call my friends.
