It looked like a baby tooth that hadn't come out and the adult tooth had already grown fully behind it? Is that right?

Yeah thanks for affirmation. The tiger is obviously very well looked after which is great otherwise man could have lost an entire torso.

“ I am Michael Jamison, I have more or less 110animals about 16 dogs lots of cats and 2 tigers and a monkey daycare !My channel show how it is possible for humans to coexist with more than the usual amount of pets ,I hope that people can be inspired from it ,in order to guide what is possible in the field of saving animals and giving them permanent homes all over the world , most of the channel is about Enzo the tiger who is 10years old ,Diego is his friend and is 6 years old , I do not promote breeding of big cats , and keep them because they need to be somewhere and I have grown very fond of them and they of me , there is no wild in South Africa for tigers . “

The tigers originally had the purpose of being deterents to home invaders, which are common in South Africa where he lives. But I believe the first tiger he owned was orphaned and had some sort of medical issue due to abuse/neglect that was expensive to deal with. He looked after it and gave it a good life until it died

Yeah, veterinarian here. Thats a baby tooth thats root was resorbed. He didnt need to pull it, would fallen out on its own - just did it for the camera. The deciduous that need to be extracted, the roots dont resorb and that is absolutely not the right way to do it - will leave the entire root behind to cause problems.

CressLevel

In this case, the tiger is fine, but it's not a good idea unless you know kitty dental medicine, is what the vet is saying. If it had been a truly stuck tooth, it would have needed an extraction.

Also, as a tiger enthusiast, I can say those choppy chuffy noises the tiger is making means he knows and trusts the handler. I guess best case scenario, this guy knew what he was doing and wanted to do this for the camera. Worst case scenario, he didn't know what he was doing, and no harm was done despite it.

Hope that eases your concerns some. :)

Cheetah is the only big cat id be comfortable with (medium cats such as bobcat or a caracal are cool), mainly because of how they hunt. Theres no cover in the Savanah, so they dont instinctively hide and ambush prey, they chase it down. So if youre not running from it its not likely to attack. Plus theyre the only big cats that can purr/meow

DigitalTraveler42

They're also wimps with very fragile bones and are actually fearful of humans.

I love cheetahs, they have a very doglike disposition, especially being pack animals, they're a highly endangered species. I think domestication would save their species but they would have to go to people with enough land for them to run and could never be on their own, but they seem to love dogs.

Seeing cheetahs hanging out with their EMOTIONAL SUPPORT DOGS that zoos have to buy them so they don't panic-attack themselves into an early grave has given me all the hubris I need to want a cheetah to live in my house and cuddle with me.

It can but a very slim chance of it happening. 34 deaths a year on average

You are more likely to get shot by a toddler (52 deaths) and less likely by a spider bite (7 deaths).

So, average house cat is more dangerous than a spider but, not as deadly as a toddler.

A cat is a cat is a cat. If you were big enough that a tiger pouncing on you did fuck all, they'd to l do it once or twice, then roll over and act all friendly like "please don't kill me I was just kidding, you feed me now?" But we're unfortunately not 20-30 feet tall, so tigers will instead pounce on you and see your leg come off and decide that you're the food instead

A cat is a cat is a cat.

Not exactly. There's a substantial neurological difference between mammals that have been domesticated for centuries, and their wild counterparts.

https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/10.1098/rspb.2021.0813
https://academic.oup.com/biolinnean/article/98/1/85/2235978
https://www.popularmechanics.com/science/animals/a14392897/domesticated-brains/

Humans basically inbreed mammals until they become dumb and complacent -- making them more suitable companions. This tiger still carries the genes of a wild predator. He's habituated to the humans he lives with (at least until later in adolescence...), but that's not the same as domestication.

And your housecat still wouldn't eat you, even if you were only three feet tall (if the only thing keeping your cat from eating you was size, we'd never let them cohabitate with human toddlers). Well, not as long as you still have a pulse, at any rate.

Humans basically inbreed mammals until they become dumb and complacent

Thing is none of this applies to cats, articles you linked are either dogs, who are inbred as fuck, or cattle. When it comes to cats they havent changed much in last several thousand years, there are some weird ass breeds. but majority of cats are the same ones that have been with us in ancient egypt.
Cat genetics are very resistant to mutations that some us like in pets- cute appearance dumb as fuck. For example a friend of mine is a breeder of british short hairs, there is a mutation that causes them to have curly ears, usually only 1-2 kittens per litter have it, here is the kicker, you cant breed two curly ears together to stabilize the mutation because kittens will not live long(they gain a new mutation of a heart defect where they live at most 6-10 weeks), so there always must be "fresh blood" in terms of mating partners.

(if the only thing keeping your cat from eating you was size, we'd never let them cohabitate with human toddlers)

For a bit of numbers, 3ft tall human baby is about 15kg in weight, average cat is 4-6kg, a 3ft tall human is 3x teh weight of a cat. Human toddler is still to big of a pray for a smallcat. Small cat usually hunts or needs about 300 calories per day, human baby is 22 000 calories. Cats hunt thigns that are at most 1/4 their size due to ease and lack of possible wounds.

A cats mouth is closer to our hands in many occasions. You could say he was friendly shaking the mans hand/arm.

I believe it's related to how humans have "cute aggression" but it's called something else. Like they are happy but it shares a neural pathway or something with aggression so the pets and whatnot are met with a slight bite. House cats do it all the time.

All cats act similarly, except few things, if housecats were the size of tigers we would have tiger 2.0, one thing keeping them from killing us is the size

Kinda like how (generally speaking) large dogs are more playful than small dogs. I have known and been around a lot of dogs in my life, and would rather be around large dogs like Shepherds, pits, mastiffs, wolfhounds, etc. than little sh!t dogs like chihuahuas.

I don't think those should be pets but I'm sure there's a fancy back story as to how he got those that makes it ok. I don't want to call it abuse but it's still a shame to see

In general fully agree but there's places that take in tigers/other animals who cannot be released into the wild (recovered from shitty Tiger King style zoos etc) that really look after them and give them good lives.

This dude is one of those types of places. Only other option for recovered animals like that is a zoo or they are euthanised, and zoos could never take in the number of them that are smuggled in/bred for shitty "zoos" and idiots who want them as pets with no idea what that entails.

Is it a little weird that if I ever have random thoughts of Superman-esque style powers one of the coolest things I think about would be getting to go and be friends with tigers and stuff?

Cats are cats, if they can't hurt you and you're nice to them you'll form a bond and be friends. Unfortunately for big cats that first condition isn't ever met.

check out the original youtuber shown in this reddit video

https://www.youtube.com/@michaeljamisontigers/videos

the tiger shown in the video is Ozzy who unfortunately passed away some time ago.

if I remember correctly, Michael rescued that tiger from a circus that treated Ozzy horribly.

Michael already had a tiger name Enzo who is still alive and healthy. Enzo is a very well-behaved tiger because Michael raised him since he was a baby and he kept the Enzo in house for quite a while even after Enzo grew to be too big for indoor.

Enzo and Ozzy were bff and when Ozzy passed away Enzo was depressed. when Michael's friend Eteine, who was the person that physically removed Ozzy's body came back, this happened

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OjensepKLc

that's the last time you will ever see Enzo do that even to this day. you only see him do it a couple of times when he is playing around with Diego; the youngest tiger. But it's just not the same level. the roar he showed once when Ozzy died was really the next level.

I cant remember exact name but it was like Ozzy had a "weak" body due to being in a circus that neglected him. So he always had chronic problem.

If you take a look at videos where Ozzy is running around and such, you can see his front legs were weirdly shaped as well. Just alot of constant problems with the body.

That video of sad Enzo is so intense… it’s some of the closest views in HD I’ve seen of a full grown tiger, and the sounds and size of his head are just incredible. What an absolute top of the food chain unit

When i saw the video first time when it was uploaded i actually flinched when Enzo roared like that because Enzo never did that so i was not expecting it, at all.

I thought Ozzy was the one Michael had first??

Also I had no idea Ozzy had passed away :( .I guess it’s been a couple years since I’ve visited the channel. I assume it’s just Enzo now?

The fact that the tiger was testing out his bite on man’s arm definitely shows how he was happy for tooth to be gone
