This Tiger’s Major Fail With Halloween Jack-O’-Lantern Is Going Megaviral: VIDEO

by Clayton Edwards

Are you feeling the post-Halloween blues? Maybe you had the kiddos out a little late collecting candy. On the other hand, you might have had one too many last night and the world is just a hair too bright and loud today. Heck, maybe you’re just having a rough Monday. Either way, if you need a mood booster this video of a tiger doing its best to snatch a jack-o’-lantern will do the trick.

The Nashville Zoo shared the clip last week to get everyone into the Halloween spirit. Additionally, they hoped to encourage people to come to the zoo and see the animals enjoying pumpkins and other fall-themed fun. However, it’s hard to believe that visitors would have spotted anything as great as this poor tiger failing to snatch the jack-o’-lantern in her enclosure. Check out the short clip below. It’s only a few seconds long but it never gets old.

If you need more proof that the video of the tiger and her jack-o’-lantern never gets old, the Nashville Zoo shared it for the first time in 2019. At that time, the zoo was promoting its chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers nonprofit. Then, the zoo shared the video again in 2020 to promote its pumpkin sponsorship program to benefit Bat Conservation International.  

Michelle Wolfe captured the video in October of 2019 and shared it with the zoo. Wolfe commented on the Zoo’s recent Instagram post saying that she was pleased that people were still getting joy from the clip.

More About the Jack-O’-Lantern Loving Tiger

Fox News had more information about the jack-o’-lantern loving tiger. She’s a Sumatran tiger named Frances. Sumatran tigers are indigenous to Indonesia and are considered critically endangered. When they aren’t being poached, they can live up to 20 years. A fully grown member of the subspecies can weigh up to 300 pounds and be as long as 8 feet. These massive cats can run up to 40 miles per hour in short bursts.

This jack-o’-lantern snatching tiger shows us something else about the nature of the species. People commonly refer to tigers, lions, and jaguars as “big cats” and the more you observe them the more fitting the name seems. They tend to play and behave like house cats. Of course, you probably won’t catch your pet cat snatching the top off of a carved pumpkin, but Frances’ playfulness does match that of any tame cat.

Right now, the video of Frances the Tiger and her jack-o’-lantern has garnered nearly 29,000 views since last week. Join the thousands of people who have enjoyed Frances’ frolicking and start your week with a good laugh.
