Tiger circa 1900 Gustav

For hundreds of years, the riding of large tigers was a pastime enjoyed by a select few Hindu tiger trainers under the employ of princes and rajas. Not until the Dentzels introduced the carousel tiger did this kind of ride become a more familiar experience for thousands of us common people. This particular tiger is actually an older dominant male who moves rather slowly, checking in on the activities of his realm. Of course all of us little rodents know that he can hardly hear or see and uses what remains of his scent tracking abilities to make his way around on his well worn path circumnavigating the kingdom of Lop.

Notes by WHD: The Tiger is not an Aftican animal, and tigers don't turn into butter when running in circles around palm trees in pancake shops, only in the wild.
