Courting tigers

Tigers are my favorite big cat (Pallas’s cats are my favorite small one), and here’s a video from BBC Earth about courting tigers. It’s pretty anthropomorphic, and only an interlude in the solitary life of this species. Plus it looks a bit dicey with all the roaring and all; and on top of everything, mating lasts only a minute or so.  What a life!

    You’re right about it being anthropomorphic; but, it was sweet (watch on mute and it’s delicious). = )

    Is there a more beautiful mammalian predator? Lions are close, but I’m with you on the tiger…subjective as it is. Wonderful footage here as well.

    Beyond magnificent, the most beautiful of our Big Cats.
