5 Have you met Mike the Tiger? Have you met the LSU mascot Mike the Tiger? Mike is a huge tiger who lives on the LSU campus. Mike is beautiful with his gold and black stripes of fur. He roars loud and he scares people sometimes. Sometimes people scream loud when he moves quickly! Mike loves to eat raw meat. To him, the meat is a tasty meal. When Mike is near meat, he can smell his delicious meal. When my two year old cousin visited Mike in Baton Rouge, he asked his dad if Mike the Tiger was going to eat him? Why do you think he asked his dad that question? Yes, he was very afraid of Mike. It seems that he does have soft fur, but many would never take the chance to feel if it was very soft or not. Have you have met Mike the Tiger? I have and he was a beautiful tiger. I have to be honest. I was extremely happy he was in his large steel cage when I went to see him on the LSU campus!
