Fully grown tigers can be playful too, or at least, that’s what a viral Twitter video with the apex predator playing hide and seek with a duck shows.
Playful killer kitty: The video, posted by Twitter user @buitengebieden_, has already amassed more than 700,000 views.

- The 46-second clip shows a tiger stealthily approaching a duck, who soon dives underwater after noticing the big cat.
- The duck reappears on the other side of the tiger and continues to disappear and reappear until the video cuts off.
- Some Twitter users applauded the bravery of the duck. One user even pointed out how similar the video is to a specific scene with Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) and Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) in “The Big Bang Theory.”

Another viral clip: A similar video went viral in July showing the same interaction between a duck and a tiger. Only that time, however, the clip was shared by Indian billionaire Anand Mahindra on Twitter.
- “This explains — better than any management lecture — the advantages in business of being small, nimble and quick-witted,” the chairman of the Mahindra Group wrote. “That’s why large companies need to carve out startup teams & startup cultures within themselves in order to pursue new opportunities.”
