That Smells! by FurLined That Smells! by FurLined
At the zoo today I watched this tiger sniff something on the ground and then do the gaping mouth thing that domestic cats also do after sniffing something that smells strongly/of interest. Unlike domestic cats tigers also dangle their tongue out as well, it seems :). Apparently it's called the "flehmen response" and they're drawing air into the vomeronasal organ.

Wow, awesome! I wish I saw a tiger at the zoo I went to! This tiger has really yellow teeth, and look at his big tongue.
