The Tribe of Tiger: Cats and Their Culture 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Mrs. Thomas's writing is more observational and anectodal like a novelist than a professional anthropologist and biologist. Of course, I find the text of a novelist more enthralling. One thing that is interesting about her conclusions is that she doesn't pretend that she has all the answers about these enigmatic creatures called cats. Her retelling of the /Gatuscha and their relations with the lions in the bush of South Africa was astonishing. Her accounts of pumas were fasinating and insightful with those of Ruby, the captive female. The cats, she theorizes, are totally motivated by meat in their emotions, which underestimates that capablility while she overrates qualities like a cat's sense of sight. Yet in other cases, she does make very good relevatory statements about why maybe cats followed as. SPOILER (It's in the grass.) Here conclusions on zoos were true and stuff I already knew. I wasn't totally convinced that circuses were the best life for contemporary tigers or other exotic cats. Circuses are just too arcane for me and are usually frauds that treat the trainers and the animals equally bad, especially the big-time operations. I would recommend this book. Cements my belief that scientists pay attention too much to some items and don't give enough credence to the most inscrutable and defiant group of organisms this universe has ever seen.
