The BIG cat who likes getting wet and wild by MICHAEL HANLON Last updated at 11:46 29 May 2007 Most cats do not like getting wet - as anyone who has tried to bathe a moggie will know. But as these pictures show, there's always the exception to the rule. For the cat in question is a large male white Bengal tiger called Odin. Six years old, and at the prime of his life, Odin lives at the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Zoo in Vallejo, near San Francisco. Scroll down for more White tigers - the colour is caused by an unusual genetic combination - are rare in the wild, although there are several dozen in zoos. Odin was hand-raised at the zoo. In fact, although Big Cats generally do not like water, tigers of all types have been spotted taking to the water to hunt and even to bathe for pleasure. Odin can now be observed in action - a large pool with glass walls has been constructed at the zoo to allow visitors to watch him gliding through the water with all the grace of a polar bear.

Wolf and tiger cubs brought together to form a unique bond of endangered species By Mail Foreign Service Updated: 14:21 GMT, 14 May 2010 In the wild, a chance meeting between a wolf and a tiger would not be this adorable. But, seeing as they were friends since being two weeks old, these litters of wolves and tigers share a unique bond. Separated from their mothers to insure their survival, they are beginning their journey as animal ambassadors at The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species - conveniently abbreviated to 'Tigers'. The young timber wolves and Bengal tigers seem unaware that they are supposed to be sworn enemies as they play for the cameras in their South Carolina home. On the prowl: Wolf and Tiger cubs play together at Myrtle Beach South Carolina Zoo. Now aged three months, and sharing the same bottles of milk formula, the 25lb wolf cubs are twice the weight of their tiger bedfellows. The founder of Tigers, Doc Bhagavan, said: 'At the moment the tigers will have a size and weight disadvantage to their canine friends.

A tiger at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Park Tigers love water and will readily jump in to kill their preyAt a Californian nature park, a trainer threw meat into a pool to demonstrate the tiger's agilityA photographer captured on film the tiger's quick dash and dive By Alex Ward Published: 11:43 GMT, 17 July 2012 | Updated: 11:43 GMT, 17 July 2012 This hungry tiger has just one thing on his mind - to taste fresh meat. He was quick to leap into water, his jaws open wide, razor-sharp teeth gleaming to reach the chunk of raw meat. Capturing the action on film at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Park in Vellejo, California was professional photographer Juan Leon, from Walnut Creek, California. Diving for dinner: Tigers will swim to get food and this feline showed how it's done after a park trainer threw meat into a pool Raw meat ravage: Photographer Juan Leon saw the 'perfect moment to take a picture' while sitting infront of the crystal wall looking into the pool ‘I thought "this is the perfect moment to take the picture" and it was!’
The Sand Cat – Desert Cat Extraordinaire Don’t be fooled by the off the scale cuteness quotient. This is the Sand Cat – or Felis margarita, a little known species of desert cat. In the wild it lives in areas that are too hot and dry for any other cat- the deserts of Africa and Asia, including the Sahara. It also lives in the Arabian desert and those of Iran and Pakistan, yet despite being so widespread it was not described by a European until 1858. He named it Felis margarita after Jean August Margueritte. To an extent the sand cat could be mistaken for a domestic cat but there are differences, noticeably the very broad head. Likewise with their height – they usually grow to about six centimeters taller than the domestic cat. One difference from the cats that we know which is difficult to see in these pictures is the fur that the cats have between their toes. The hollow structure that encloses part of their middle and inner ear, their auditory bullae, are also larger than those of the domestic cat.
