Bengal Tiger still hasn't left quarantine. He's got a some ulcers on his tongue and dental issues that need addressing. Tiger is still receiving antibiotics and antiviral medication to help with that.
Bengal Tiger likes to "feed himself" by “eating” the tube without being held in place. He's a curious seal, and a bit cross-eyed. Practicum students tell us that all the cross-eyed pups are quite curious! His curiosity knows few boundaries. When tubs are cleaned, the pups are moved into a tote. Tiger is one of a few pups that need a lid with air holes on that tote to prevent him from "escaping". He still manages to lift the lid off with his nose, though. Nothing keeps this one in his tub for long!
