Hey A Shark No Wait It's A Tiger

Most cats do not like getting wet - as anyone who has tried to bathe a moggie will know.

But as these pictures show, there's always the exception to the rule. For the cat in question is a large male white Bengal tiger called Odin.

Six years old, and at the prime of his life, Odin lives at the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Zoo in Vallejo, near San Francisco. He is about 10ft long from nose to tail, and is an excellent swimmer.

You don't want one as soon as you have to clean your aquarium.  Wink

There is a big difference between moggies and tigers. All big cats swim and bathe all the time, given that their natural habitats are in places like India and south east asia, where it gets really hot.
Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

Not completely accurate.

Though not always considered Big Cats because they cannot roar... Cheetahs usually wont have anything to do with water.

I would never let a big-ass tiger jump on my shoulder like that. That tiger looks scary.
