The elusive Highland Tiger, or Scottish Wildcat, is captured on camera in Cairngorms National Park, Scotland. Nature photographer Peter Cairns, from Kingussie, has been documenting the decline of the Highland Tiger and he predicts that unless more people are made aware of this national icon, its future is decidedly uncertain. “I think part of the problem is the fact that not many people realise the animal exists; its very rare and elusive,” explained Peter, 48. “It’s hard for people to relate and care for something that they dont know exists.”

angry turtle is angry. this looks like me when i’m ready to go to bed.
i don’t know why they’re my favorite animal but they have been for a long time. they’re sly and you can’t trust them and they might eat your cat but there’s something so admirable about them.
