Water Reflections

Yay! Because we’ve been deluged with rainfall for months now (we have had a liquid summer for sure), our dried-up lakes, creeks, and ponds have started filling up again, including my favorite spot at the Tallahassee Museum. See, there’s that silver lining in the cloud. Plus, the storms make for dramatic lighting in the sky. 😉

Bengal Tiger

This is my favorite animal to visit at the Tallahassee Museum, a young male Bengal Tiger. He is quite the cat, my ferocious furry feline.

Tigers are the largest members of the cat family and are known for their massive power and strength.

Bengal Tigers live in India and are sometimes called “Indian tigers.” They are the most common tiger and comprise about half of all wild tigers. Over many centuries they have become an important part of Indian tradition and lore.

Female Bengal Tigers give birth to litters of two to six cubs, which they raise with little or no help from the male. Cubs are not able to hunt until they are 18 months old and remain with their mothers for two to three years, when they leave to find their own territory.

Tigers use their beautiful, distinctive coats as camouflage. Did you know that no two tigers have exactly the same stripes?

The White Squirrel

This white squirrel scampers all throughout the grounds at the Tallahassee Museum. It’s always fun to spot him, and just once he posed for me here on this gate post.

This red fox loves this spot on the tree to nap, this was the one time I’ve seen the fox awake!

Thank goodness he’s not looking at me while licking his lips.

And like all cats, he just likes to play!
