Tigers are actors. They don't need to roar to warn you to back off! They are smart, fast, and ready to pounce when they smell a threat or a good meal. Similarly, Soyinka's quote advises if you want to step up your game, and do anything to promote yourself or your business, you must act! There's no point broadcasting your next move before you make them. Just act.

Tigers are very unpredictable. They are wild and get angry too quickly. Don't taunt them even if they're caged.

One time at the San Francisco Zoo, a tiger, Titiana, killed one visitor and mauled two others. They later discovered that she'd attacked them because one of the victims was dangling a leg over. Animal observers consider tigers to have a very short anger fuse. They'd probably kill someone for a bite, even if they aren't hungry.

We feel hurt when friends, neighbors, or even strangers attempt something negative toward us. Even when we lose those we love, we feel lost and aggrieved. We hardly forget those who loved or hurt us. And when we feel betrayed, we feel that urge, that emotional pull to fight back because, naturally, it's who we are deep down. We are emotional animals. But we're not the only animals with feelings. Elephants, monkeys, and tigers have emotions too.

"The most magnificent creature in the entire world the tiger is."

- Jack Hanna

Jack Hanna is an American zookeeper and director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Hanna is one of the most recognized animal experts in the United States.

Tigers are one of the largest cats in the world. Tigers can grow up to 3.3 meters in length and can weigh up to a freakin' 670 pounds (304kg). Unlike most cats, such as the lion, tigers are excellent swimmers and, surprisingly, enjoy being in the water. Tigers also have antiseptic saliva. Antiseptic? Yea! When they get a cut or bruise from a fight, one lick on that spot will kill all the germs. And stop any infections.

So yea, Jack Hanna's probably right with his Tiger quote. They are the most magnificent creatures in the entire world.

Felines are carnivores, and we often refer to them as cats. They can hide or reveal their claws. Felines have slender, muscular bodies, strong jaws that can kill their prey in one bite, and diverse fur patterns. There are more than 34 species of cat in the world today, including the domestic cat. Hedren's right! That is a tremendous number.

Tigers are super hunters with powerful jaws strong enough to break the neck of a water buffalo. Generally, tigers are known to ambush and maul weaker prey. But Indian tigers, and incredibly more powerful species, go the extra mile. They occasionally attack and kill other predators such as the Indian leopard, Indian wolf, Indian jackal, fox, and mugger crocodile. If prey becomes scarce, Indian tigers also attack humans and elephants.

"In waking a tiger, use a long stick." -Mao Zedong #trvst #quotes #thinkgreen #bethechange #powerful #tiger #stripes #bigcat

"In waking a tiger, use a long stick."

- Mao Zedong

Mao Zedong, popularly known as Chairman Mao, is regarded as one of the most influential figures in modern world history. Zedong is the founding father of the People's Republic of China. Although Zedong remains a controversial figure in China after failing to tighten China's population growth, many have praised him for improving the status of women.

Tigers will attack you when you provoke them. It is said that one swipe of a tiger's forelimbs is enough to kill a person or an animal. So next time when you are waking a tiger, take Zedong's advice...keep a good distance. Don't ever get so close.

Conclusion

Tigers are one of the most beautiful animals in the world. Unlike lions, tigers are excellent swimmers and love getting wet. However, they are constantly under threat from poachers and hunters who kill them for their skin and trespassing. In China, for example, a tiger pelt can sell for about $10,000. That is a lot of motivation for poaching.

But we can save tigers and stop the killing. We can support their relocation to safer areas where they can roam freely without getting killed by greedy poachers. We can do this by giving back and donating to organizations focused on preserving tigers and other wild animals.
