This is “Gator,” the Bengal Tiger that was the visiting guest at the Tallahassee Museum for most of the past year, but he went back home to Gainesville, Florida, in early October. I really miss that big furry guy. But he’s gone back to a great home, the Carson Springs Wildlife Sanctuary. Gator is three years old and was rescued from a traveling circus after he reached the 40 pound weight limit and was being starved so he could continue having pictures taken with people. This sanctuary is run by a couple and they’ve rescued lots of big cats and other animals. What a great place and wonderful people! I intend on sending a check soon, that’s how much Gator touched my heart. 😀
This Bengal tiger is one handsome fellow, especially his eyes.
