30 Insanely Cute Photos Of A Baby Tiger Playing With A French Bulldog

What fearfully adorable symmetry. Meet Gus, a 4-month old Bengal tiger, and Gus’s best friend Agnes, a very patient French bulldog. Dave Salmoni is a large predator expert who will be hosting “Frontier Earth” on Animal Planet this fall, and he was kind enough to let us hang out and photograph this clash of titanic cuteness.

1.

Here’s Gus, perched atop the shoulder of Dave Salmoni like a giant, furry, potentially-dangerous-but-mostly-playful parrot.

2.

And this is Agnes, Gus’ best friend and the portrait of grace.

3.

Gus and Agnes are play pals.

4.

Although, most of the time, it’s just Gus playing on top of Agnes.

5.

When not busy busting Agnes’ chops, Gus likes to climb on Dave.

6.

And groom him.

7.

Chairman of the Board Gus calls the meeting to order.

Let’s just enjoy a baby tiger prowling a conference table for a few photos.

10.

Shake it!

12.

Gus spots his prey: Agnes. That’s Grant Kemmerer, Gus’ owner, kneeling next to Agnes. Gus, Agnes and Grant all live on a farm in Pennsylvania.

14.

The epic struggle of baby tiger and French bulldog, like the mongoose and the cobra.

15.

Agnes never stood a chance.

16.

But, as always, Agnes takes things in stride.

17.

Gus had plenty of admirers in the Animal Planet offices. Unfortunately, not everyone could fit in at once, so there were plenty of lookie loos trying to get a peek through the glass walls of the conference room.

18.

Dave’s foot makes for a convenient chew toy.

19.

Gus returns to his strategic vantage point and spies his target…

20.

…dog butt.

21.

Dog butt must die.

22.

The theme from “Jaws” was playing in everyone’s mind.

23.

Agnes is gonna need a bigger boat.

24.

Round 2!

25.

Love tap.

26.

Feigning indifference.

27.

Round 3!

28.

And our time with Gus, Agnes and Dave draws to an end. Most of us couldn’t decide who was cutest out of those three.

Finally, snuggles. (All photos by Amy Sly.)
