King Of The Tigers

Solo grew up with the majestic tigers since their birth and considers them a part of his pack. While Solo currently serves as top dog in charge, we suspect that may not last much longer after the cubs grow an extra 600 pounds.

But for now, Solo is enjoying his role with the tigers. He follows the tigers when they go out and rounds them up when it's time to go home.
