Breathtaking rare footage of tigers running at full speed (Video)
Incredible footage shows three Bengal tigers which can reach speeds of 47MPH playing in water at a wildlife reserve
Rare footage has emerged of three Bengal tigers splashing around playing a terrifying game of cat and mouse.
The pictures are among the first to capture the endangered species front on looking them in the eye as they hurtle towards their prey.
The three big cats were caught on camera at The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S) wildlife reserve in Myrtle Beach in South Carolina.
They include a majestic white Bengali tiger called Uma, who weighs in at 350lbs, but can still accelerate at up to speeds of 47 mph.
She is joined by two-year-old red tiger, Ravi who weighs in at 300lbs and Yam, a 360lb orange and black Bengal aged six.
The tigers came out for play-time after record quantities of rain had left the ground at the wildlife reserve drenched.
