Biting the tide: Can Tigers Swim?
Interesting photo shows a tiger swimming. No, he is cuddling the water in an excited embrace as he reaches his target. Photo taken by Shashwat Parhi.
A tiger jumps into a pool of water to catch her prized piece of meat at the Odin’s Temple of the Tiger, Six Flags (California). Much to the amazement of a houseful audience, this tiger made it amply clear that she can swim. Claws retract to make very effective and powerful paddles, ears fold down to keep water out and their excellent eyesight works perfectly even under water. – National Geographic
