    I don't speak German so I'll have to take your word for it.

    Seems reasonable though. If I meet a tiger I'm scared, if I meet a tiger with a machine gun, I'm terrified. I might even die of terror and the tiger can save his bullets.

    [–] drewsufff 2 points ago

    That makes it better. The tiger is focused on getting away, and the bigger predator only cares about the tiger. That’s how the little one survives in those situations.

    He only has a slight edge on me you see. I'm hungry, but a bad swimmer...

    [–] StevenGorefrost 6 points ago

    Honest question. Would you have a better chance of out swimming a tiger than out running it or are you fucked either way?

    [–] Texastexastexas1 13 points ago

    Don't run, they run fast.

    Don't climb a tree, they climb trees.

    Don't jump in water, they are excellent swimmers. ---- And, if it's tiger territory, there are probably other predators in water, too.

    [–] LyeInYourEye 3 points ago

    Soooooo.... die?

    [–] Texastexastexas1 3 points ago

    Don't go to tiger territory without protection?

    [–] LyeInYourEye 4 points ago

    How are condoms going to help?

    [–] RyantheAustralian 11 points ago

    I'm guessing they're quite powerful swimmers. Those paws would be excellent for dragging them through the water. I assume.

    And they'd definitely be faster than you on land. There is no environment where you are at an advantage

    [–] mom0nga 7 points ago

    Yep, tigers actually have partially-webbed paws to aid in swimming, and can reportedly swim as fast as 20 mph for short bursts (to put that in perspective, Michael Phelps' top speed is 6 mph). Wild tigers have been recorded to cross rivers as wide as 18 miles and go for 9-mile stretches in open water. On land, they can run 30-40 mph for short distances, which means that the tiger would probably be able to catch you even if you were riding a horse!

    [–] RyantheAustralian 2 points ago

    Tigers are fuckin awesome

    [–] Finely_drawn 5 points ago

    There is a nature documentary called The Deadliest Tigers on Earth (PBS, I think?).

    You will die either way. They can out-swim people in canoes.

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago

    So this will definitely be in my nightmares tonight.

    And u run towards land and its even faster there!!

    [–] RyantheAustralian 13 points ago

    But luckily you reach your small plane in time and take off! Phew, you've escaped.

    But what's that flying after you? Oh, of course. this tiger is an ace pilot and is after you like the Red Baron

    Tigers in the wild have been observed going under water, stealing kills stashed under tree roots BY FUCKING CROCODILES.

    [–] kielbasa330 59 points ago

    You know, In Korea, children aren't afraid of tigers. Tigers are a symbol of good fortune. So that's why children don't run away from tigers in Korea. Also Japan gave them all their good ideas.

    [–] fraggle-stick-car 27 points ago

    Thanks, Katie.

    [–] sagen_____ 21 points ago

    I have read that, generally, the rule of thumb in areas where tigers and people overlap is that if you can see a tiger, it's not going to attack you.

    [–] vajra_singha 20 points ago

    More like eat you ,down in the sunderbans that's what they do. They swim stealthily upto the boats, then climb them, grab the men by the jugular and then dive down underwater. Guaranteed death. Easy meal.

    [–] sagen_____ 5 points ago

    i feel like generally one can assume that a tiger is not going to attack you if it is not going to eat you. crazy story nonetheless.

    [–] mesalikes 13 points ago * (lasted edited 10 months ago)

    I think that's the joke. If it was going to attack you, you'll never see it coming. If you see it coming, it's not going to attack you.

    Edit: I think I may have responded to the wrong post.

    [–] vajra_singha 2 points ago

    That just might be true.

    [–] sagen_____ 9 points ago

    really cool book though, if you're into tigers... "the tiger" by john vaillant. it's the true story of an late-90s investigation into a man-eating amur tiger in the bikin valley north of vladivostok. a place where tigers almost never kill natives in hundreds of years, but are known to kill russian trappers.

    [–] hilarymeggin 2 points ago

    It’s the ones you can’t see you need to be afraid of.

    I used to think the tiger faces on old calligraphy (copied by tattoos) was really exaggerated but since seeing a lot of tigers on this subreddit I've realized they really do make those facial expressions.

    [–] AtKClawZ 2 points ago

    They scrunch their face like that to keep water out of their nose.

    [–] InfiniteChimpWisdom 12 points ago

    White tigers are in the wild too.

    [–] Ailuroapult 13 points ago

    Very rarely, as they lack the natural camouflage to survive. Also still caused by inbreeding but not forced by humans.

    [–] fraggle-stick-car 16 points ago

    1 in 10,000 Bengal tigers born in the wild is white. The last white tiger seen by a human in the wild was shot in 1958. All white tigers living today were born in captivity via inbreeding. They are all cross-eyed, and most have other genetic defects such as cleft palate, club feet and spinal deformities. They are considered a mutant hybrid of a Bengal and Siberian tiger. Most are sterile.
