The Siberian Tiger has a cat toy.
He's really interested in this toy. I think they must have put some sort of food scent on it.
This sure is a lot of fun!
Now what?
Aha, time to wash the cat toy!
OK, now the tiger has a sopping wet cat toy.
"You aren't thinking about taking this away from me, aren't you?"
I think this is an ocelot. Most of the indoor cat displays were too dimly lit for photography, but this kitty was napping directly under a skylight.
These are Arabian Wildcats, ancestors of the domestic housecat. These guys are just about the same size as your average housecat, too.
Close-up shot of one of the wildcats.
This is a puma, also known as a cougar or mountain lion, the native big cat of North America. In this photo it was licking some of the snow off the shrub in the foreground.
Another puma shot. "Hmmm, I'd like to have those small children for dinner."
More puma. Note how big its paws are!
The zoo's male polar bear. The female was off display because she'd just recently given birth to a cub.
One of the Kodiak bears takes a nap. These are a subspecies of grizzly bears.
