Tiger gets a bad baby tooth removed
When a tiger’s first response to having a tooth yanked is not a roar, snarl or swipe with claws, but a test nibble to check that its mouth works as well as it suddenly feels, it speaks volumes about how much the bad tooth* must have hurt.
*You can see, briefly, that it’s black and nasty on the inner side. Yuck.
I’m just awed by the amount of trust in this gif. That tiger totally trusts that the human is going to help with that scary metal object on an already painful area and the human totally trusts that the tiger is just test nibbling and not chomping down on his arm. I flinch when a house cat comes at me too fast and these two don’t even hesitate to trust each other.
You do realize that it was also drugged and sedated prior to this right? It’s not trust or anything… I’m one of the biggest animal lovers you’ll meet. I work in the American Museum of Natural History in New York City (the place where “Night at the Museum” took place?) and I work behind the scenes in classrooms and laboratories. I take care of dozens if not over a hundred different animals on a weekly basis. It’s not a test nibble. That tiger was still in pain and instinctively tried to BITE down where it felt the source of its pain. It was just drugged, so it couldn’t bite HARD. Don’t think you can just treat an animal and have it love you. This is for your own safety folks! Seriously, I don’t want anyone getting hurt!

Contains fifty-three plot-important fights, nine flashbacks that are also tearjerkers, several references to ancestor mythology and more than a few pale displays that border on pornographic.
