" This tiger is shown walking with a feline step. It appears to be walking on a catwalk not interested in the public. It is carefully painted, it has a long tail and its mouth is open. On its red fur there are black streak tidily arranged. "

1940 catalogue description

" The Tiger is a very beautiful creature but probably the most dangerous of all those in the jungle, silent of movement, sleek, always an enemy. Nothing is safe from it, and the many stories of these man-eating beasts tell of the fear they inspire. "
