Publisher Comments:

In 1982, conservationist Dr Bhagavan Antle was introduced to a Siberian tiger cub by a zoo director visitng his clinic. Animal-lover Antle was so enthralled by the the tiger that he founded The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S.) - a wildlife education organization, dedicated to promoting global conservation in an interactive and entertaining way. He also set up the Rare Species Fund (R.S.F.) to raise funds in support of international wildlife conservation programs. T.I.G.E.R.S. and the R.S.F. are based in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and operate four public education exhibits and yearly productions of the highly acclaimed "The Tale of the Tiger"" show. They have also contributed to Matabeleland Leopard and Cheetah project in Zimbabwe, the Savannah Cheetah Foundation in South Africa and Samutprakam Wildlife Park in Thailand. Today, Antle is widely recognized as one of the foremost animal trainers in the world, having worked with thousands of animals and even in Hollywood on such films as Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls and Forrest Gump. He continues to promote the education and conservation of endangered species and remains as enthralled as ever by the creatures he protects. In this stunning collection of studio photographs, Antle invites us to get up close and personal with seven species of big cat: leopard, cheetah, lion, lynx, ocelot, panther and tiger. Beautifully photographed by Barry Bland, the grace and purity of the feline form is accentuated against the blank setting of a studio background, giving these images a candid and intimate feel. An extraordinary sense of personality shines through alongside magnificent colors, markings and textures, shown unhindered and up close. Including portraits of both cubs and adults and with a profile of each photographed cat, this beautiful book will be treasured by both artists and cat-lovers alike.

Cindy Reader, November 29, 2012 (view all comments by Cindy Reader)
I met Doc Antle back in the 80's when he was first starting out - he's an incredible voice for conservation in the 21st century and this is another wonderful book of photos of his preservation's big cats. They serve as ambassadors, making the creature and it's plight in nature real to people in a way reading about them or watching video can not do. As you hold a living breathing baby tiger, you connect. Sometimes I hear people talk about how wrong it is to make ambassadors out of the big cats - how they should all live in the wild. Where exactly is this wild? At the start of the 20th century there were 100,000 wild tigers, and now there are 4,000, with more poached and threatened every day. To survive we must have preserves,and to save the tiger is to save ourselves.

All that being said - this is a nice affordable book of beautiful big cat photos. Enjoy!
