Tigers wakes up in the morning and eats a bear for breakfast. Being so completely hardcore, it's not a surprise that tigers actually have no natural predators. These guys are kind of like people: we all know what it feels like to be on the top of the food chain. Booyah.
Some may say, "Why not have painted a Lion? The king pin cat." Because lions need their pride. Tigers can, and often do, fly solo. Like Han Solo. I'm going to teach Bug that you don't need pride, in fact, it often gets in the way of good decision-making. So what if I'm not using the same definition of pride- it's my painting. The point is, a tiger mentality will help him be independent of his peers, being who he is confidently.
That's not to say he won't have friends and love his family. See, doesn't this just warm your heart? This little guy is all cuddly with his fuzzy butt and he loves his mom.
Now get your candy ass out of that computer chair and wrestle with your cub!
Last, but not least, the majestic bald eagle. Coming soon.
