Put 3 points in survival of the fittest. Simple as that :)

Druids do not need a single point of Defense rating. They become crit immune through talents.

Defense still gives them Dodge and Miss, but that's it.

Look up Darksend's Feral Tank guide, it'll probably give you more info than you want as well as some gear lists of things that you may wanna start going after.

There are many talents that you may or may not want points in depending on your play style and normal raid comp, but here is a decent starting point:

Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=0ZxGGscrzceRcckVo0Eczb)

Talents that generally get discussed as being optional are things like Master Shapeshifter, iLOTP, imp Mangle, KOTJ, Infected Wounds, and Feral Agression. There is a decent amount of flexibility here.

I really think that King of the Jungle is a neccesity because of the 10% damage bonus :P

The 10% dmg is only while your enrage is active and you shouldnt be tanking when its active

Here is the build I use

I can use enrage on most encounters without it getting me killed, especially good for a fight like loatheb. Generally where I see the use in the talent though is for more initial aggro on the pull.

I simply use it at the beginning of a fight or right before I hit berserk or frenzied regen, works wonders that way.
