Boy in Tiger Costume Earns His Stripes

He’s about the same size. He’s wearing stripes. And he likes to play.

Looks like 2-year-old Marshall is the perfect playmate for Kali, a 7-month-old Sumatran tiger cub.

The toddler donned his tiger costume for a Halloween trip to the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, Wash., where he caught the attention of the cub.

He had a grand time entertaining Kali through the glass of her enclosure; that is, until he wore her out!

After you watch this adorable video, don’t miss our gallery of the hand-reared tiger, who was born in April.
