Tiger Jigsaw Puzzles

I just love Tiger jigsaw puzzles. There are SO many beautiful ones out there however, this one captures some amazing details making it look very real. As a child growing up, I had visits to the Canadian African Lion Society and even though I believe these beautiful animals belong in their natural habitat, I could appreciate having the opportunity to see them 'live'.

Springbok, the Tiger Tiger Burning Bright is a Thrift store purchase. Very lucky for me all the pieces were there.

But I must explain first why these 2 tiger jigsaw puzzles are posted here together and there are so few progress photos.  It's because they were mixed together in the one Springbok box. And also luckily for me, the random cut shape of the Springbok pieces made it a little easier to define the difference between the two.

Obviously some of the Tiger-colour pieces were tricky to sort out and I basically had to build both Tiger jigsaw puzzles at the same time.  But then on the flip side of that, some of the colours were easy to separate from the two.

This Tiger jigsaw puzzle is nameless and I have not ever been able to locate any information on it. Even with the ribbon-grid cut and the quality thickness, I cannot determine which brand it is. I do know it is not Ravensburger, Springbok or Cobble Hill Company brand. But the piece quality is decent and the image is captured perfectly in the reflection.  

Personally I always thought reflections in water would be challenging but I was pleasantly delighted to see how well this one went. Turns out, the sky and the water were the sluggish areas.

So to my surprise and delight, I ended up with 2 Tiger jigsaw puzzles: One complete Springbok and one mystery jigsaw puzzle. If you know the Title or Brand of this one, I certainly would like to know. Sadly it is missing only 1 piece and I made a substitute box with a printed image of the assembled puzzle.

I have also had the pleasure of assembling  the Bengal Tigers and this 2000 piece Bengal Tigers
