Mane Up

Though not a cat lover, I love the lion’s mane. Strong and majestic, a full mane is the sign of a healthy lion. Lions are known to be lazy and dominating; lionesses do all the hunting, but the alpha male gets to have the lion’s share of the booty, after which the lionesses feast of…

Cotton-Top Tamarin

This gorgeous ‘Dad’ greeted me as I set out to explore the Singapore Zoo with my family a few years ago. Cute and curious, these cotton-top tamarins are actually listed as critically endangered (with just 6,000 of these monkeys alive), and the zoo is doing a phenomenal job in keeping the species alive. Native to…

Be Human

Native to Malaysia and Indonesia, the Bornean and Summatran Orangutans are the closest mammals to humans. In Malay, orang translates to “person” and utan is derived from hutan, which means “forest.” So orangutans are literally “forest people”. Unfortunately, due to excessive deforestation in both countries, the Bornean orangutan is classified as endangered (only 104,700 remain)…

Stray Love

There is something about love that transcends words. Take music for instance; even without words it makes us feel things. Have you had friends who don’t speak in the same tongue as you do? Coming from the land of 18 major spoken languages with over 1600 regional dialects for company, I still get a lot…

Preyed

I think anybody with an insecurity, which is everyone, appreciates the fact that it’s much easier to be a predator than it is to be prey. ~James Van Der Beek Psychopaths are social predators, and like all predators, they are looking for feeding grounds. Wherever you get power, prestige and money, you will find them….

Ready For The Kill

I prefer dogs over cats, but the felines I meet seem to be more camera friendly than my favourite canines. This one was getting rather defensive as he was ready to jump into our side of the building from the neighbouring building wall. Related articles Dog vs. Cat: Are They Really Rivals?

On Guard!

This little guy was a bit scared of us, but he sure was fascinated by my camera. These little pups get chased a lot by the big bullies, so he seemed to be guarding his fortress. I think he made for a pretty picture!

Puppy Love

Pugs have become a rage in the country, because a popular telecom operator has used the little dog quite extensively in their advertising campaign. I don’t find them cute at all, in fact the basset hound, Droopy is a lot cuter I say!

My Lost Kitty!

I found my abandoned little friend back, close to where I saw her last. She now lives with the local Dairy owners, and boy has she grown big!

Trust Comes Easy

This cute little creature was sunbathing at the beach, and yes he was alone (not uncommon in India). We became friends in a matter of seconds really. He wasn’t too comfortable posing, but yes I did manage a few good shots. And I am quite happy with the results. Who says trust doesn’t come easy?
