Tily, a 2-month-old Bengal tiger cub, was just looking to enjoy an afternoon to himself in his enclosure at the Fundacién Refugio Salvaje animal refuge in San Salvador on Thursday. Instead, he had to spend it fending off photographers looking to snap shots of his adorable mug.
While we have to admit, we’d be tempted to click some mementos of our own if we got anywhere near Tily and that purr-recious face, the cub had its own ideas about how to best handle the impromptu photo shoot – with his teeth.
Count your blessings, Hollywood: at least a celebrity can never threaten to eat you.
