They are German tigers and I had the chance to cuddle one of them and even hold her in my arms while she hugged me and tried to eat my hair.
It was one fantastic experience and they are such beautiful and amazing creatures! Watching their game was worth everything, and feel their soft kids' fur under my fingers a memory I surely won't forget that easily. ) Facts about Syberian Tigers today
They are very-very few and they count as endangered specie so far I know.
There are many "save them" programs going on but their number falling instead of growing.
You may say this is stupid as each year they tell about more to be born, but this is sadly a lie. It is true that people trying to save them, but from those ones they count to be still alive and roaming in the wilds in big percent are hybrids.
Their genetic not perfectly controlled (or lousy way handled) and many of these "Syberians" are hybrids not bring pure blood of their subspecies.
These three ladies are pure blooded Syberians and the private zoo bought them plan to give more into this project and considering to buy a male pure blooded next to them hoping in breeding.
It is a noble goal and I surely hope that it will add a bit to this project even if one zoo not enough to make miracles.
