Tigers do not normally view humans as prey.Tigers will only attack a human if they feel threatened. Or if they’re really really hungry. If you were to ever encounter a tiger in the wild, slowly back far, far away while keeping eye contact with him. Chances are you’re in his territory and he wants you to leave more than he wants to eat you.

Tigers are nicer than lions. Unlike lions, who would fight to the death over a kill, when a tiger crosses paths with another tiger while hunting, they often share the meal together. Also, when several tigers are present at a kill, the males will wait for females and cubs to eat first, again, unlike lions, which do the opposite. Tigers rarely argue or fight over a kill and simply wait turns.

Every tiger in the world is unique – no two tigers have the same pattern of stripes.

Hver gang jeg begynder at male nye billeder, ville jeg ønske, at jeg bare kunne fortsætte der hvor jeg slap sidst ved det forrige projekt, men det viser sig altid, at det er umuligt at gøre. Jeg må altid begynde forfra, skabe det nye projekt ud fra de ting, jeg kender for derefter at bore mig længere ind i “stoffet” og komme videre eller male noget der er anderledes end det, jeg har malet.
I det projekt jeg lige er startet på, vil jeg gå ud fra nogle grundige arbejdstegninger, som jeg vil lave i den kommende tid. Samtidig vil jeg tænke på, at de kan være grundlæggende for et akvarel / farvestudie, jeg kan bruge til nye malerier.
Just like house cats, the markings on a tiger’s fur are also found on their skin, so even a shaved tiger would still show its stripes.
