“Tiger, tiger, burning bright…”

Shown is a Bengal tiger enjoying an afternoon dip. Yes, tigers, like jaguars, enjoy the water, swimming swiftly, enough to cause a wake. Panthera tigris, the tiger, is a member of the Felidae family. It is the largest of the four big cats, reaching up to 11 feet in total length and weighing up to 660 pounds. The Bengal tiger is second in mass to the Siberian tiger.

Three subspecies of the modern tiger are extinct out of nine total subspecies. The remaining six are classified as endangered. This is because tigers inhabit the most highly populated places on earth, which leads to significant conflicts with humans. The other factors which endanger a tiger’s well-being are habitat destruction, fragmentation, and hunting. The three extinct subspecies are the Bali tiger, the Javan tiger, and the Caspian tiger. The featured Bengal tiger is the most prevalent of all tiger subspecies. The other non-extinct subspecies are the Indochinese tiger, the Malayan tiger, the Siberian tiger, and the South China tiger.

Regardless of the senseless stupidity of humanity, tigers are the most popular and charismatic among the more enlightened people. Their range today is fragmented and includes India, Southeast Asia and China, even the island of Sumatra. Tigers became extinct from Java, Borneo, and Bali during the 1900s.

Tigers are very recognizable, with their reddish to brownish stripes, white chest area, and a white fringe encircling their faces. The stripes can vary from subspecies to subspecies, from brown, gray, or pure black. These stripes number at 100 or over, but their patterns are very unique and can be used to identify each individual. The stripes help tigers remain undetected in the tall grasses in which they hunt. All tigers also have a white spot on the backs of their ears. A mutation that occurs can produce the white tiger. These tigers have some pigment but are albinos, with blue eyes and pink noses. This mutation occurs in one in every 10,000 births. All white tigers are at least part Bengal.

Tigers, of course, are very effective hunters, with their powerful legs and shoulders. They can pull down prey that are substantially larger than they are. Tigers hunt at night. Unlike lions, male tigers will allow the females and cubs to feed on a kill first, behaving quite cooperatively when sharing their meal. Unrelated tigers have been observed eating together amicably. Tigers will also eat a vegetarian diet, the fruit of the Slow Match Tree being one of their favorites.

To effect a large kill, like a water buffalo, tigers prefer to bite the throat to suffocate their prey. Their bite is so powerful as to be able to crush the skull of domestic cattle and break the backs of sloth bears. Tigers often will hunt in the water, with as many as 20% of hunts ending in a successful kill.

Elouise Taylor - Wildart Gallery Artist

Born September 17, 1923, in the San Francisco area, she is the daughter of Dr. Charles Vincent Taylor, Dean of Biological Sciences at Stanford University. Elouise studied ballet from age 5 to age 17, and shortly thereafter joined Sonja Henie Hollywood Ice Review, a career (including movies) lasting more than a decade.

Some of her work displayed at www.wildartgallery.com (a display-only site) illustrates the artistic rendering of Olympic and professional ice skaters at work. The World Figure Skating Hall of Fame acquired and proudly displays an original oil portrait by Elouise Taylor of Sonja Henie, with whom Elouise skated professionally on tour for ten years. To this day, Elouise skates as gracefully as ever.

After raising three beautiful children, she has continued professionally as an artist specializing in wildlife, nature scenes, and portraiture. Still working full time, Elouise continues to bless us with many fine works, some of which appear at this site.

Elouise appreciates the art of motion and balance. This synergism of her knowledge of an animal's habits with the appreciation of its soul is beautifully expressed in her paintings.
