Where in the World? Wednesday

Well, it's Where in the World? Wednesday once again.

All these big cats were photographed in the same place - so to speak. First correct answer gets an autographed copy of my new Field Guide to Digital Photography (click on the picture of the book cover on the right for info).

US only due to shipping.

As you know, I try to be a bit tricky about my questions. . . As always, be as specific as possible.

Subscribe to my blog for cool learning mixed with some fun. Every day, something new - when I am not traveling.

Make pictures,
Rick
P.S. I am launching a series of "Big Cats, Big Prints" soon. Stay tuned.

I'm going to guess that these were taken at a rescue facility similar to one near where I live (www.conservatorscenter.org). These organizations quietly do wonderful work to preserve threatened species.

I'm going for the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. They appear to be the only zoo with all of the species contained your photo.

How about the Fort Worth Zoo in Fort Worth Texas.
Probably from Rick's July 2003 trip.

Wild Eyes Animal Park in Montana?

Can't win as I'm in the UK, but just a guess!

I think the commonality of the photos is that they were all shot at Zoos or Sanctuaries.
For instance, the top left photo was from Big Cat Rescue near Tampa Fla.
The top right photo was at the Fort Worth Zoo. I'm only guessing that the others were from the San Diego Wild Animal Park & the Bronx Zoo.
But it could also be the Belize Zoo too....
