Looking into the eyes of this beautiful tiger, it's hard not to feel the heavy burden of his sadness.
After his life partner passed away, Sandokan the tiger became sullen and unresponsive. The two had spent 13 years together, and Sandokan simply couldn't find a way to move on without his beloved.
Concerned, the zookeepers initially tried to introduce Sandokan to another tiger, a young female named Samira. Unfortunately, it was too soon - Sandokan ignored her.
