What info is available on this bad boy?
I will start doing a little research on him now.
Here is the article about him and tigers lack of tastebuds
A salt lick is a deposit of mineral salts used by animals to supplement their nutrition, ensuring that they get enough minerals in their diets.
While a wide assortment of animals, primarily herbivores, use salt licks to get essential nutrients like calcium, magnesium, sodium, and zinc, Carnivores, do not crave salt. This is because they obtain salt from the body fluid of their victims. However, Tigers do lick salt occasionally in order to maintain the right balance of nutrients in their body.
Apparently, Tigers seem to be able to taste salt, bitter & acidic flavors and to a lesser degree, sweetness. Cats in general possess only about 500 taste buds as compared to 9000 of the humans and therefore it is believed that their taste buds have a minimal role in their ability to survive."
