I got a chance to play with some baby tigers a few years ago.  One of them got a little rough, and I thumped him on the nose and said "No!".  He pulled his head back and looked me right in the eye, not intimated one bit.  Even at only a couple of months old, those things knewexactly what they were:  apex predators.  The look he gave me clearly said, "Come back an see me in six months, food".

There was a young lady of Riga,
Who smiled as she rode on a tiger.
    They returned from the ride
    With the lady inside
And the smile on the face of the tiger.

and in Latin:

Puella Rigensis ridebat,
Quam tigris im tergo vehebat.
    Externa profecta,
    Interna revecta;
Risusque cum tigre manebat.

Yeah, they think that. Of course a few more light whacks earns a little subservience from them. Of course the best way to do that is a high powered rifle. Come see me in 5 years, throw blanket.

Harry_Seldon: Tigers are not some unthinking killing machines.

OK, try to imagine yourself in the big cat enclosure. You get your first look at this pussy cat as you enter a clearing. He moves like a house cat, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex - he'll lose you if you don't move. But no, not Sumatran tiger. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side.
