Say Hello to the Nice Tiger...

Here's a short video of a tiger surprising somebody. I have to say I never had a tiger do that to me. I would guess there's a simple reason: Listen to that sound the tiger makes as it walks up to the camera. That's called a "chuff", and it's a greeting. In my experience, if a tiger makes that sound to you, and you repeat it back to the tiger, you've started a friendly relationship. It should be one of the first things a place like that in the video tells visitors.

And I would guess that the tiger figures that someone who doesn't return the greeting isn't worth his respect.
