MARTY and Dominika may look better suited to humid tropical climes, but the two Amur tigers enjoyed a frolick in the snow earlier today.

The endangered big cats, in captivity at the Highland Wildlife Park in Kingussie, Inverness-shire, are actually natives of eastern Russia, where the climate is similar to that of the north of Scotland, according to gamekeepers.

Marty and Dominika may also be expecting a cub, with a new arrival hopefully due in May, according to park staff.
