Big Cat Missing Link   A fossil recently found in the Zanda Basin in Tibet included remains of Pantera blytheae, a new species of big cat that is most closely related to the modern day snow leopard. The skull of P. blytheae is the oldest big cat fossil found to date, and fills a significant gap in the fossil record. It indicates that ancient big cats lived nearly 6 million years ago, 2 million years earlier than previously thought, and sheds light on their geographic origins in Asia.

Flavio

FLAVIO  Male Siberian/Bengal Tiger DOB 1989 DOD 1/5/2014 Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 1/1/2002   Flavio arrived at Big Cat Rescue in 2002 after retiring from the circus.  He was hailed as the smartest circus tiger ever known.  He performed a light and music number flawlessly for years until he decided one day that he didn't like the other tigers and all he wanted to do was fight.   Perhaps he really was the smartest circus tiger because that bought him a ticket to retirement with us.   He was known here Read More

Doing What Bobcats Do Bobcats make great neighbors but lousy pets.  More info about Living With Bobcats.   Awesome ad erases all the animals in The Lion King's opening sequence This is a great ad by Greenpeace Netherlands, brilliantly executed by Studio Smack: They erased all the animals of The Lion King's opening sequence to show kids and adults how the African savanna would look if we don't protect its animals. I can imagine the kids first puzzled, then crying, as all their favorite animals disappear leaving the beautiful Read More

Amanda the Tiger

  AMANDA Female Tiger Born 1/1/96 Rescued 9/28/11   Arthur, Andre and Amanda were born in 1996 in New Jersey to be used as pay-to-play photo props.  It never makes sense to breed more cubs to raise money to feed last year's cats, and the New Jersey facility fell into disrepair and then was shut down after USDA revoked their license following a tiger escape. In 2003, Wild Animal Orphanage took in the 24 tigers but big cats have big appetites and by 2010 the Wild Animal Orphanage was in bankruptcy. It took Read More
