Love the third shot of the elephant.

Here are my suggestions:

--Blur out the background (unless you have something really interesting in the background to show), like in the tiger shots to put more emphasis on the animal and make it 'pop' out. Increase your aperture size (small f-number) and zoom in a bit more and you will get a nice blurred background.
You will agree that the branches and leaves behind the tiger are only distracting from the main subject. Sometimes its good to have leaves and trees, but not when they are not the main focus.

--The tiger also seems to be a bit overexposed, hence you can't see much of the details. So try to reduce exposure and you will get more detailed picture. If you shoot in RAW mode you can also do this in post-processing.

-- One tip is to expose for the most important highlight, then recompose the shot and take it.

-- Try also to compose your pics so that you dont have a few blades of grass or plants sticking out from corners. You can also crop them out while processing.

Cheers
