VIDEO: Sneaky White Tiger Creeps Up On A Visitor At A Zoo Before Launching A Lightning Attack…

An unsuspecting visitor to the Chimelong Safari Park, located in Guangzhou, southern China, was on the menu wish list of the zoo’s white Bengal Tiger. And under normal circumstances, the poor guy would not have stood a chance. Unbeknownst to the man, he was standing in front of the tiger’s cage just lounging and chatting with others. That’s when the large feline began sneaking up on him, classic cat style; with stealth, silence and the intention to pounce at just the right moment. As the man stands there completely unaware, video captures the beautiful, but powerfully carnivorous animal doing what it was designed to do…stalk and attack prey. Then savage and eat that same prey. These are not cuddly, cute kittens that you play with. They play with you… very briefly before eating you.

The man turns around to look behind him, triggering the animal to lunge directly at him, stretched to its full height on its two hind legs anticipating an easy kill. The cat slammed into the glass, full force. The man, startled, is saved from being dinner by the fact that between him and the impressive beast is some thick and impenetrable glass. Still, it has to be frightening to see that even with the glass. The guy jumped like his life depended on it. Thank goodness it didn’t. But it shocked and terrified the guy anyway. That’s instinct kicking in. It’s easy to laugh at it now, but for a second there, I’m sure he wondered if this was indeed it.

The safari park, which includes about 320 acres, is the home of about 100 tigers. They must have some brave zoo keepers in that place. Can you imagine feeding time in that kind of environment? Among them is included Siberian Tigers and Bengal Tigers; of which white tigers are a subspecies. White tigers are native to east Asia and are the product of genetic rarity, meaning both parent tigers must have the recessive gene to produce a baby white tiger. This occurs in about 1 of every 10,000 births. Though they are rare in the wild, they continue to be bred in captivity based on their popularity with wildlife attractions, circuses, zoos and the general public. Tigers are spectacular to watch.

The Tiger is one of the most beautiful big cats, with its legendary striped pattern and its graceful cantor. Both the orange tiger and white tiger are equally stunning. Big cat enthusiasts around the world covet the opportunity to see them up close that is provided by zoos and natural parks. But even they realize that they need to be armed and stay a safe distance away. If there is such a thing with big cats like these.

A study of the habits of these stunning animals reveals that they are fierce and a force to be reckoned with. They are killers. Think of what a house cat will do to a mouse and then substitute a grown human for that mouse with a tiger. You get my drift here. In a zoo, it’s fun to see the tigers. In the wild, a tiger is the last thing a person would want to see. In India and China, they are man eaters. Of course precautions are taken to ensure the safety of zoo visitors, but nothing is perfect and it is recommended to be alert at all times. Though this man in China did not become dinner for the white tiger, it only takes an unlocked door or a careless mistake made by park personnel to turn a day of fun into a day of tragedy. It can happen in the blink of an eye.

The ferocious creatures of this planet demand our respect and they will have it, one way or another. And you are dinner for some of them. Humans are not always at the top of the food chain. In every tiger is a carnivore waiting for dinner. And if we want to make sure that we are not in the eye of the tiger, we must keep our own eyes open, even in places which have been specially designed to house these members of feline royalty. Because they are hunters and they are wickedly fast. They also have really nice teeth. Roar!
