Transcript for Jack Hanna Brings Tiger Cubs, Foxes and a Kinkajou to 'GMA'
Here are words you don't want to hear from the tiger handler before you go on the air "we're going to try this." Direor of emeritus from the columbus do, jack hanna is live with us. Siberian cubs, they look so gentle, but what? We all know what happened last year. The siberian tigers, maybe 500 in the world. George as waiting the bengal tire is maybe 400 pounds, these get to be up to 600 pounds. They're the largest tiger in the world. I'm sorry to say, these animals have chips in them. These animals will end up in australia or europe. How old are they? 6 months old. We've seen at one time, their stomachs explode. Cats eat, leave it for the vulgars but they'll come back a week or two. They can swim on top of the water, under the water. The power of these animals I've seen a bengal tiger take down an animal in less than ten seconds. They're calm here, though. They're beautiful. If you look at the stripes. If you had a bengal tiger here you would notice the difference in the stripes. No two stripes are alike, right? Correct. But a different pattern. In the back, see the spots. Eating something, something may be attacking it, they'll say, oh, he's looking backwards. Wow, they're beautiful. Every time I see these animals, I can't believe it.

Now, let's get back to josh. We saw the kinkajou. Exactly. Josh -- I saw that -- I saw that for josh. Here you go. Oh. Should be fun. The kinkajou is a nocturnal creature. They live in south america. They get in a beehive, the fur is so thick that a bee cannot penetrate this underneath the honey. The fur turns green. Like a big blob. He likes gray. He likes you. That tail is long, like a opossum's tail. He uses it as a hand. Like balance. They're found in south america. Do you want to jump? I can only afford one suit here. Thank you, jack.
