Animals - Tiger 17 by MoonsongStock Animals - Tiger 17 by MoonsongStock
Sumatran tiger, Toronto Zoo. She's not growling; this is the "flehmen" response, which can be seen in all cat species when they are examining a pheromone or other interesting scent. The curled lip allows air (and smells) to be drawn over a special organ called the Jacobson's organ for analysis.

That poor tiger appears to have had its fangs broken off!

They're worn down from age. The two adult Sumatrans that the Toronto Zoo have are quite old for tigers! Which is mostly good, but I guess it sucks when your important body parts start wearing out a little.
