Four adorable tiger cubs put on the ultimate catwalk show as they watched a zoo keeper hunting for a mobile phone.
A clumsy visitor had dropped their smartphone into the cubs’ enclosure in the city of Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, China, and asked for help getting it out.
But as the keeper searched in the undergrowth, four cubs lined up on the walkway behind him to see what he was doing.
The man appears to be awe-struck by the cute little tigers lining up and gives them a few pats on the head, which they seem to enjoy.
It was not long before the footage made its way onto the social media platform Douyin – China’s version of TikTok – and captivated netizens.
Douyin user ‘Meow Han Cook’ commented: “Fortunately for staff, the phone fell in the ‘kindergarten’ area.”
Another user, ‘remember……’, wrote: “This guy looks like he’s petting his own cat.”
And user ‘fairy and cat’ jokingly said: “The tigers thought he was bringing them food, so they lined up obediently and waited to be fed.”
While user ‘love ya good things’ said: “Fortunately, they were only cubs. If it was a big tiger, it would have been a different scene.”
